The BFS named us Best Indie Press 2018, and we’re announcing our 2019 titles!
FantasyCon 2018! It’s not long now until the good people of Chester begin to furrow their brows and say, who are all these people, and why do they keep telling me to check out Joel Lane?
Unsung will be there, propping up the bar like the publisher cliche depended on it. We’ll also be representing on panels and readings. Find out where we’ll be here.
If you're heading to Nine Worlds over the weekend make sure to keep your eyes out for Unsung! We'll be out and about across all three days of the con, so there'll be lots of chances to catch us.
On the Friday, Publisher George Sandison will be on The Only Way is Indie! panel, talking about indie publishing, and all its myriad wonders. For those of you looking to find out a bit more about how we do things, or generally curious about the publishing world, this is a great chance to ask us questions!
Verity Holloway, author of Pseudotooth, and Malcolm Devlin, will also be on panels on the Sunday. Malcolm will be talking about folk horror at 11:45am and writing short fiction at 1:30pm. Verity will also be on the folk horror panel along with disability in SFF at 1:30pm and intoxicants in fiction at 3:15pm. You can check the full schedule on the Nine Worlds website.
We'll also be running a pop-up stall on the Saturday between 3pm and 6pm so if you want books that's the best time. We'll have all sorts of treats with us, including some of the numbered editions of the BFS Award nominated anthology 2084. We know a couple of contributors will be at the con as well, in case you want them signed.
If you miss the stall, George will also be sporting this summer's finest look, the Suitcase Full of Books. So if you see a guy who looks like this:
ask him what he's got for sale! He may well be lurking about after panel sessions on the Sunday...
A quick note to let you know how we’re getting on with our submissions reading.
We have now read all of the submissions sent in during our open window and responded to everyone. So if you have sent something in during our February window, but haven’t heard from us at all please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We had 150 submissions, and we have been incredibly impressed by the general quality, so you’ll have to bear with us whilst we finish shortlisting and selection. Clearly, you lot are talented bunnies!

I realise most of you didn’t know the man, but you do know his work, so I hope you’ll join me in thanking Martin for it, as we say goodbye to our friend today.
We're thrilled to announce that Cassandra Khaw's story from 2084, 'Degrees of Ellision', has been shortlisted for STARBURST Magazine's Brave New Words Award!
