Ships of Stone: The Islands of Mervyn Peake
16 March - 18 May 2013
Gerald Moore Gallery

Ships of Stone: The Islands of Mervyn Peake takes a new look at the work of the visionary artist, writer and illustrator by focusing on one of Peake’s lifelong obsessions: islands. The exhibition uses audio recordings to bring Peake’s writings alive alongside objects and artworks that span his career, many of which are on public display for the first time. Boundaries between real, imaginary and metaphorical islands are blurred in illustrations for Captain Slaughterboard Drops Anchor (1939) and Treasure Island (1949), paintings and drawings from his time on the Channel Island of Sark, and in his descriptions of the symbolic island of Gormenghast Castle, the setting of the novels for which he is best known.

The exhibition features major loans from the Mervyn Peake Estate as well as works from the National Portrait Gallery and other public collections in the UK.

The Moorcock Cup 2012
By Rothgo at Nov 6 2012 - 05:42
The Moorcock Cup 2012

Welcome once again to the playoff of the year: The Moorcock Cup (Grail if you must!)

This year there will be a little change to the traditional format, as behooves any self-respecting chaos engineer. Rather than looking at single novels, we have invited the big-guns this year - it's Omnibus time!

The first round will be fought out in Champions League-style qualifying groups: the top two books from each group qualify to go into the following knockout rounds.

Knockout match-ups are assigned randomly, with the priviso that qualifiers from same group will be kept seperated in the first knockout round.

Those are the rules: by the end of the year, there can only be one. Feel free to promote any favorite you may have in any group or match-up as you see fit. Round one is now open and will close on Sunday 18th Nov.

Let The War Amoungst the Omnibuses begin...!


Gollancz announces major new Michael Moorcock publishing project

Gollancz has announced a major two-year publishing project to release the entire science fiction and fantasy back catalogue of Michael Moorcock in both print and eBook editions, as well as a substantial amount of his literary fiction.

Starting in February 2013, the programme will bring back all of Moorcock’s genre works including Hawkmoon, Corum, Von Bek, the Eternal Champion books and, of course, his most famous creation, Elric. At the same time Gollancz will also publish Moorcock’s Jerry Cornelius novels, The Brothel in Rosenstrasse and other non-genre fiction.

The newly published books are definitive editions, carefully prepared with the author and his long-standing friend, bibliographer and editor, John Davey. The new versions will be particularly important to fans as they will present the Elric stories in a consistent internal chronological order together with associational material never previously published.

The books will be published by Gollancz as print omnibus editions with a matching livery. Individual eBooks will be published by SF Gateway, Gollancz’s ground-breaking online SF&F digital library of classic genre fiction. The programme begins with the publication of the last three Elric novels: Daughter of Dreams, Destiny’s Brother and Son of the Wolf.

“I am extremely pleased to be continuing a relationship with Victor Gollancz which began nearly fifty years ago,” said Moorcock. “This new programme will make available many of my books which have been hard to obtain in any form and will now be available in both print and electronic form in newly revised definitive editions prepared by myself and my long-standing friend and editor John Davey.”

Feel free to discuss this news in the Q&A forum.
