SHRIEK RIDES THE TRAINS & NEWS



Via Liz Williams, the news that the Shriek review virus continues to infect the U.K., this time through the First Great Western train line's magazine, Reach. I believe this is the same review running in a lot of regional newspapers. Mucho thanks to the reviewer is all I can say.

Jay's review of Shriek at FantasyBookSpot.

In other news, Juha Lindroos has been scouting locations and doing some initial shooting for the Shriek movie, while I work on rewriting my Rough Guide to Ambergris presentation for conversion to a short movie version. Lots more in the works, of course.

Coming up by week's end, the comprehensive fantasy list, for what it's worth. Every list is incomplete. Every list is corrupt. However, if it puts somebody on to a book they haven't heard of before, great.

And, of course, interviews with Mike Arnzen and Neil Williamson soon.

Congrats to all of the Nebula winners, to Jeff Ford for his Edgar, and if you're into F&SF Magazine, don't forget to subscribe. Gordon Van Gelder's doing a little blog promotion thing right now.

You might want to change Hugo to Nebula. And feel free to delete this comment too.

Just finished City of Saints and Madmen last night. I read Veniss Undreground about a month ago. Thanks you for all that you put into them both.

A quick question. Does it make any difference in which order to read City of Saints and Madmen and Veniss Underground?

Thanks,

John
