Slowly dusting off

Things are starting to settle into a new normal and I should start to have more time to spend on my writing ‘career’ from this month. So I shall be dusting this blog off and slowly becoming more active in posting.

This weekend past I attended a rather fabulous FantasyCon (many thanks to the Exec of the BFS for rescuing FCon!) and was nominated for a British Fantasy Award for Best Collection for The Museum for Forgetting. I didn’t win but it was nice to get a third nomination (previously nominated in best short story and best collection for A Tiding of Magpies.)

I also have a story in The Best of British SF 2021 from Newcon Press – The Stone of Sorrow which was published in the reprint/relaunch of A Tiding of Magpies.

I shall be at BristolCon on 29th October but will be blending that with watching some films at Forbidden Worlds Big Scream.

And just in case you’ve missed the news I’m now the editor of BFS Horizons – Issue 14 will be going out to BFS members soon, Issue 15 is with the typesetter and I am currently choosing stories for Issue 16, so if you have a suitable story then please send it to me soon, before I fill the issue.

I am editing two anthologies this/next year – The Milford Anthology which is a collection of stories that have been workshopped at the Milford annual conference which is due to launch Easter 2023 and Frost, the follow up to the North Bristol Writers Fire anthology.

And finally I am working on getting The Certainty of Dust revised for next year which will be published by Grimbold Books.

Pete Sutton has a not so secret lair in the wilds of Fishponds, Bristol and dreams up stories, many of which are about magpies. He's had stuff published, online and in book form, and currently has a pile of words that one day may possibly be a novel. He wrote all about Fishponds for the Naked Guide to Bristol and has made more money from non-fiction than he has from fiction and wonders if that means the gods of publishing are trying to tell him something. You can find him all over social media or worrying about events he’s organised at the Bristol Festival of Literature. On Twitter he’s @suttope and his Bristol Book Blog is here: He's contributing editor of Far Horizons e-magazine which can be found here:
