At last year’s NewCon5 in Northampton I met a gifted artist, Andy Bigwood. He was looking for writers to be inspired by his art, and create flash stories to be in his forthcoming book, The Sixty. It has a launch date with Ian Whates’ anthology ‘Further Conflicts’ at 6pm on 22nd April at EasterCON, National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham UK. This won’t be the first time I have written fiction inspired and accompanied by art. One of my favourites where I had time changing with altitude was What Kept You? published in Ultraverse here. The Sixty is something special in that my fiction is not only in a wonderful book of art, but alongside favourite writers such as Bec Zugor, who was with me in M is for Monster, and in Escape Velocity. Also the creative genius, Liz Williams, who has my Exit, Pursued by a Bee on sale in her witchcraft shop in Glastonbury.
Of course all the authors involved cannot grace the cover so I am one of ‘the many more’ , of which I am proud. For in that many more are superb writers I am honoured to be with. Jon Pinnock and Bec included.
Andy Bigwood’s art can be found in his online gallery here.
