Modem Times 2.0 update
By Michael Moorcock at Dec 9 2010 - 09:46
Modem Times 2.0
We just signed off on the [Modem Times 2.0] proofs so it looks like next year is definitely when it's published. I'm having a blast working with PM [Press] and I hope you'll all enjoy the running theme of the covers (photos by Linda). Byzantium Endures and Laughter of Carthage are currently in preparation. It's worth taking a look at their whole list, by the way. A LOT of good stuff.
I have to say that PM's general standards are outstanding and far better than most of the corporate publishers I've worked with.

Elric: Swords and Roses (28/12/2010)
By Sir John Barbic... at Nov 30 2010 - 20:01
Elric: Swords and Roses
Feared by enemies and friends alike, Elric of Melniboné walks a lonely path among the worlds of the Multiverse. The destroyer of his cruel and ancient race, as well as its final ruler, Elric is the bearer of a destiny as dark and cursed as the vampiric sword he carries—the sentient black blade known as Stormbringer.

Del Rey is proud to present the sixth and concluding installment of its definitive omnibus editions featuring fantasy Grand Master Michael Moorcock’s most famous—or infamous—creation. Here is the full text of the novel The Revenge of the Rose, a screenplay for the novel Stormbringer, the novella "Black Petals", the conclusion to Moorcock’s influential “Aspects of Fantasy” essay series and other non-fiction, and an indispensable reader’s guide by John Davey.

Sumptuously illustrated by John Picacio, with a Foreword by Tad Williams, Elric: Swords and Roses is a fitting tribute to the most unique fantasy hero of all time.

By Reinart der Fuchs at Oct 13 2010 - 20:12
The time has come for you to decide. Tell us who your favorite Doctor Who is for a chance to win a Doctor Who proof from, better known as BBC Books. Thanks to them for the chance to offer these prizes!

To enter this contest you have to post in this thread stating in a couple of sentences which Doctor Who is your favorite and why. For example:

William Hartnell (or "The First Doctor" or whatever gets your point across)
I only just started watching Doctor Who, and have seen the Hartnells, Troughtons and half of the Pertwees. Of the three Hartnell is my favorite, because he is the ultimate bastard operator from Hell.
Doctor Who: The Coming of the  Terraphiles

We will draw 3 winners randomly from all entries October 27, 2010. We hope that the winners will read the books straight away and blog, tweet or review the book at Amazon or any other place.
