We will be at Novacon again this year, which will be held Friday 14th to Sunday 16th November, once again at the Park Inn Hotel in Nottingham. We will also be launching Necropolis by Christopher Nuttall on Sunday morning at 11am in the downstairs bar.
Various of our authors and artists will be in attendance too:
Future Perfect is the first book in the Blueprint Trilogy which takes us to a future in which men and women are almost identical, and personal relationships are forbidden. Following a bio-terrorist attack, the population now lives within comfortable Citidomes. MindValues advocate acceptance and non-attachment. The BodyPerfect cult encourages a tall thin androgynous appearance, and looks are everything. A dark undercurrent runs through the trilogy: the enforcement of conformity through fear, the fostering of distorted and damaging attitudes towards forbidden love, manipulation of appearance and even the definition of beauty. Join Katrina to celebrate the launch of her book with a drink, hear a reading, buy a copy and have it signed! What better way to spend a December evening?
It’s also worth saying a big thank you to Intelligent Penguin, a digital agency, who offered the use of their venue in exchange for a donation to a charity of Katrina’s choice. In keeping with the themes of the book, Katrina chose Beat, a charity providing helplines, online support and a network of UK-wide self-help groups to help adults and young people in the UK beat their eating disorders.
Peter R.Ellis will be launching his Evil Above the Stars fantasy series at Leominster Library on Saturday 28th March from 11:00 to 13:00. Volume 1, Seventh Child, and Volume 2, The Power of Seven, will both be available. Come along and hear a reading, ask questions, buy copies of the books and Peter will sign them for you. All welcome!
Existence is Elsewhen, our fantastic new anthology is available from 18th March 2016 as an eBook. It will be published in print on 25th March 2016, and launched at Mancunicon.
The title, Existence is Elsewhen, paraphrases the last sentence of André Breton’s 1924 Manifesto of Surrealism, perfectly summing up the intent behind this anthology of stories from a wonderful collection of authors. Different worlds… different times. It’s what Elsewhen Press has been about since we launched our first title in 2011.
In Existence is Elsewhen we present twenty science fiction stories for you to enjoy, one from each of the following twenty great authors:

It’s in the Hilton Manchester Deansgate hotel, and over the weekend we’re holding two book launches in the Presidential Suite on the 22nd floor – our great new anthology Existence is Elsewhen on Saturday evening and Peter R. Ellis’ Unity of Seven on Sunday afternoon. Come and join us for a drink at the launch parties, and say hello if you see us around and about (we’ll be wearing our Elsewhen Press t-shirts!)
