Hic Dragones - micropress open call!

Hic Dragones is a Manchester-based micro-press and creative writing organisation. Their recently-launched anthology Impossible Spaces featured short stories from upcoming authors as well as long-established names such as Simon Bestwick and Ramsey Campbell.

Now Hic Dragones have another open call: this time, for an anthology titled Hauntings. Full details can be found over here. If this sounds like your bag, go see what they're looking for...

Set It In Space - and Shovel Coal Into It!

This seems to be an apposite moment - sat here in the Old Queen's Head with a pint of Bomber as I am - to announce on behalf of the Groop that our new anthology, Set It In Space & Shovel Coal Into It, is officially available on Amazon, both as a lush thick paperback and an environmentally friendly .mobi file for the Kindle! (other digital formats not yet available, but bear with us on that...)

With a foreword by the acclaimed, BSFA-award winning author Ian Sales, Set It In Space 2 has alternative-world fiction ranging from "found document" histories to far-future alien contact, by way of steam-driven whale-ships and clockwork eyeballs.
