Be A Zombie Journalist!

How would you like to be a reporter for Revenant Magazine? How would you like some free zombie goodies? Read on!

We've got a pair of tickets for Max Brooks' Film Festival of the Living Dead (Barbican, London Nov 14th, 15th, 17th and 18th) but no-one to report on the event for us (sadly, I can't attend). What are we supposed to do? Give them away!

If you think you've got what it takes to be the Revenant correspondent at the event then we want to hear from you.

We would like all interested parties to write a short piece (200 words max) about why they feel they are the best person for the job and post it here in this thread.

FD and I will pick out the star candidate and he or she will be heading over to the film festival wearing a free Revenant t-shirt and with a free copy of World War Z (courtesy of Duckworth Publishers) under their arm. The tickets will also entitle the winner to attend a question and answer session with WWZ author Max Brooks, so you'd better think of some original questions to ask him too.

All entrants must be over 18 years of age, able to make their own way to and from the events in London, UK and must be prepared and have the necessary equipment to provide a full report on the event (including photographs, if possible).

The closing date for entries is Halloween 2006.

Good luck.

More new stuff happening soon.

Well, the Shop page has been updated so that we now have an Amazon Shop and a PayPal Shop (visit the latter to order your copy of Albion #6 OUT NOW!).

We've turned in another script for Dynamite Entertainment and we've been given a hint about who our artist on that project might be (and we've very excited about that). Details of the series should be announced next month with the first issue coming out in early '07.

Details of Leah's big festive project will now definitely be announced in early November.

We've had a glimpse of the cover art for our Space Doubles story which looks fantastic enough already even though it's only half done.

We've got tonnes of stuff in the pipeline; plenty of scripts and articles and pitches to be getting on with. We've been sniffing around a couple of companies with some original ideas and we've had a few people approaching us with new stuff. Basically, we're busy and we're happy and it's all looking pretty cool.

We're doing quite a few cons and signings and stuff over the next few months so hopefully we'll see some of you there.

Work Avalanche!!!

Yes, we're suddenly totally swamped with work and work related stuff. So much so that it's hard to know what order we're actually supposed to be tackling everything in. Obviously, this is a good thing but it really makes me wish we still had a second computer (damn you laptop thieves, I haven't forgotten about that twatting I owe you!).

Anyway, some upcoming stuff you might like to know about:

Albion #6 is definitely out on the 27th/28th (US/UK) of this month with a trade to follow in late '06/early '07.


We'll be signing up in Aberdeen at...

Asylum Books and Games
29 Adelphi
AB11 5BL

On Saturday October 14th 2006


And then, two weeks later, we'll be at...

Ashton Memorial,
Williamson Park,

Saturday October 28th 2006.


Also, I'm currently ploughing through...

Max Brooks's eagerly awaited follow-up to The Zombie Survival Guide which isn't actually out here until the 14th of September ("You will be the first person in the UK to get a finished copy of WWZ btw" - Suzannah Rich, Duckworth Publishers. Not bad, eh?).
a review and an interview with Mister Brooks. Both of which will be online ASAP.


Anyway, enough displacement. Back to work!
