A typo while writing the subject of this blog post had me writing Adam Christopher Lives! which is the cry that emanated from the mad scientist who created Adam all those years ago, and possibly the subject of a different article.
This one, however, is to tell you of the next British Fantasy Society Open Night, in which Adam is the Guest Author. He will be interviewed by Gillian Redfearn, the Publishing Director of Gollancz. Don’t think we’re not keeping an eye on you, Gillian… 🙂

As has now become customary, we’re listing below the books we published last year that are eligible for various awards. Being British, however, we’re doing it furtively, and we’re looking up every now and then to make sure no-one’s watching us.
As ever, this list is provided purely as an aide-mémoire, not as a list of recommendations – if you’ve read the works below and consider them to be award-worthy, the authors would be thrilled if you would consider nominating/voting for them. If you haven’t read them, they’re all available from your favourite offline or online store.
Here are the books
