The Fandom Fifty is a collection of interviews and anecdotes from many of the organizers, guests, and attendees of Maryland’s SF Convention scene. The Baltimore region is home to a number of popular and enduring SF cons that include Farpoint, Balticon, Shore Leave, and others. The Fandom Fifty covers much of the rich history of the cons and honors many of the dedicated people who make them happen.
Attendees of Shore Leave 41 will be able to buy copies of The Fandom Fifty–and all other Firebringer Press titles–at the Friday night Meet the Pros book fair from 10PM to midnight.
We’ll also showcase Firebringer’s current titles and update everyone on what’s to come, including the third volume in the Middle of Eternity anthology series and the next installment of The Arbiter Chronicles, Steve Wilson’s popular SF series.
Hope to see you there!
Renowned comic book artist Caio Cacau is creating a fabulous cover for Steven H. Wilson’s vampire novella, FREEDOM’S BLOOD. Caio has done cover work for two previous Firebringer Press titles:
We will bring you the finished cover for FREEDOM’S BLOOD in a future update. For more of Caio’s brilliant artwork, visit his website!
Ah, our first blog post on our new website and we’re excited to have you with us! We hope you’ll take the time to peruse our available titles and get to know our brilliant authors and artists.
So what’s next? We’re working on Meanwhile in the Middle of Eternity, the third volume in our Middle of Eternity speculative fiction anthology series once again edited by Phil Giunta and offering a collection of sensational stories from returning authors Stuart Roth, Susanna Reilly, Daniel Patrick Corcoran, Michael Critzer, Phil Giunta, Lance Woods, April Welles, and our venerable publisher here at Firebringer, Steven H. Wilson. We’ll also welcome several new voices including Julie Fedon, Sean Druelinger, Peter Ong, Christopher Ochs, and Bart Palamaro.
Phil and Steve are planning to release a double horror novel (two books in one) that will combine a vampire novella by Steve called Freedom’s Blood and a paranormal mystery novella by Phil called Like Mother, Like Daughters starring psychic-medium single mom Miranda Lorensen, who has drawn quite a following since her debut in Testing the Prisoner and further adventures in By Your Side. This book will be in the format of the old ACE Doubles where you read one story, then flip the book over to read the other.
We could not be more fired up about our new look and our upcoming releases. Stay tuned as we bring you more news in the coming weeks and thank you for supporting small press authors!
