Hi there Friends & Members
HERE'S HOPING THAT YOU AND YOURS ARE HAVING A PEACEFUL AND HAPPY HOLIDAY SEASON! XXX
For those of you who have popped into the website over the holidays, you've probably noticed that there's no Longlist poll as yet. Worry not! For 2013 the DGLAs will be being presented later in the year at the World Fantasy Con in Brighton (October) - so this means we've pushed our timetable back a bit - the longlist polls will appear once…Continue

I'm heading off from Scotland to the 'Big Smoke' tomorrow, along with Christine. Looking forward to the event and meeting those of you who are coming along on the night. Was happy to see so many Fan tickets requested this year - I'm sure it's what DG would have wanted - it makes the Ceremony a special coming together, rather than an official 'industry' do (much as we love them too!)
Don't forget that you can still email in a bid for any of the auction events as Christine will…Continue

All this mediocer literature and there is no mention of the Iron Druid Chronicles by Kevin Hearne! The funniest thing I have read since I read Spike Milligans war books 30 years ago.
These books are also so close to the truth. Read them, you may be surprised, ;-)
And while I'm at it what about "The Night Angel Trilogy" by Brent Weeks?

* Dros has contacted all the MORNINGSTAR Nominees and invited them to write a short Blog post for us. He asked them all why they chose fantasy as a genre to write in and who their influences have been. They have all replied I'm happy to say, and so, it gives me GREAT pleasure to introduce our first 'Morningstar' (and Member here on site!).... take it away, Mark...…Continue

I am having trouble emailing you, I don't know if this is due to my stupidity or Gmails; anyway I would love to help with the reviewing should you still need anybody.
Love your work

Would you like to write a short review of any of the LEGEND or MORNINGSTAR novels? This year, I am planning to send out the reviews to all our Members in a Bulletin (like this one) as they come in. Also, the review will be on the website of course... I know some of you have been patiently waiting to…Continue
BARGAINS TO BE HAD! To clear some space in my office (!) I’m selling off many of last year’s Long-listed titles – I’ve decided to just do the paperbacks to start with, as they are lighter and less bulky to post (and I have to lug them to the Post Office!) All of the…Continue

The Tyranny of Talin is only a three part series which begins with a bang, it has intrigue, adventure, and a constant thrill ride from beginning to end.
It tells the tale of four travelers and how they are mixed up in the grater scheme of things, its basically about the them but there's so much more than meets the eye.
A peace treaty was formed over a century ago and it's up to Cole and the dark counsel to keep the peace…Continue

Hi there, everyone
You may have noticed that the site has been somewhat quieter than usual over the past few months. Sadly, this has been due to ill health on my part as I battled through chemotherapy. It's proved difficult to sit at my desk and look at the computer for ages, as I used to! However,…Continue
In this year alone I've authored two new books 'The Tyranny of Talin' and 'Dark Alliance: Hell Dragon'.
The first one is the beginning of a fantasy trilogy and the other is a collection of horror stories. Besides the books I'm also known as an actor, extra, screenwriter and now a Director since I'll be directing a fan fiction film called Star Gate: Origins.
