Come along to the Launch of our New Anthology on Friday 28 September 2018 at the Ale House in Stroud

We are launching our brand new Anthology on Friday 28 September from 7pm to 10pm at the Ale House in John Street, Stroud, GL5 2HA. 

Everyone is welcome. It's free and unticketed. There will be lots of writers there to meet and chat with.

The New Anthology, which I have edited, is in paperback format and has 254 pages with 57 stories by 45 Gloucestershire authors. It covers the six SSS events from November 2015 to May 2018. 

A big thank you to Debbie Young for formatting it.

The retail price is £10. The first print run is 300. I already have reservations for 260+ copies. If you want to reserve your copy NOW and collect it at the launch evening just email me on

At the launch I will be saying a few words at 7.30 and then Mark Graham will read his wonderful story 'Wayland Smith: Warrior of the Milky Way' from the anthology.
