At the forthcoming EasterCon (22nd - 25th April 2011), NewCon Press is publishing two new collections.
Fables From The Fountain, edited by Ian Whates, contains all original stories (featuring many of today’s top genre writers) written as homage to Arthur C. Clarke’s Tales from the White Hart.
It features many of today’s top genre writers, including Neil Gaiman, Charles Stross, Stephen Baxter, James Lovegrove, Liz Williams, Adam Roberts, Eric Brown, Ian Watson, Peter Crowther, and David Langford
