British Fantasycon in Nottingham this year was one of the best ever. Saw a lot of friends, met a lot of people I only ever see that time of year, sat on a couple of panels, and did a reading from ‘Dark Rain’.
Which is now out, by the way, as is my bumper-sized US collection ‘Shadows and Other Tales’. Full details of both are on my home page.
Incidentally, if anyone out there knows the artist Peter Lloyd, who illustrated the cover of the June 1982 edition of Isaac Asimov’s SF Magazine — my story ‘The Tide Will Come’ — will you please ask him to get in touch with me, since I am trying to contact him about that painting?
If you’re attending World Fantasy in Calgary, please note that I’m reading from ‘Dark Rain’ on Friday afternoon. Look forward to seeing you there. I’ll be signing my work at the Autograph Evening later that day. And, of course, at Dark Delicacies bookstore, Burbank, CA, on November 4th, 4 p.m. onwards.
richardsreality.com has been updated, by the way, and now includes — amongst other things — a gallery of the very best art that’s accompanied my work in recent years. Go to the home page and check it out.
