Ancient Wonders soon to go OOP

Ancient Wonders 170KB

The Alchemy Press Book of Ancient Wonders, edited by Jan Edwards and Jenny Barber, is soon to be out of print. If you haven’t bagged yourself a copy now is the time to do so. In a year used copies may be worth £££ or $$$.

“When we think of a wonder, our minds go most often to the great buildings of the past – the pyramids, the Taj Mahal, Stonehenge – but the human mind can make almost anything wondrous. We walk with wonders every day, through the power of curiosity and imagination and our human tendency to make stories about what we fear, what we desire, what we wish to understand. This collection offers new glimpses into the wonder we all feel.” – Kari Sperring

Discover standing stones, burial mounds, ruined castles or sunken cities: the ancient sites that litter our landscapes; the ancient wonders that possess a mysterious appeal that cannot be denied.

Check out the great contents via this link. The book is available via Amazon and other online dealers.

… Too often, short stories are just tasters which leave the reader unfulfilled – almost all of these contain a complete narrative, a satisfying set-up and resolution (although some intriguing aspects inevitably retain their mystery – as they should!). An entertaining escape into ‘what if’ worlds. I’ll look out for other compilations from this publisher in future. 8/10.” — Rowena Hoseason

The Alchemy Press Book of Ancient Wonders will cease to be available in print from the end of March 2016 — it will remain available as an eBook. If you want a copy pop over to Amazon US, Amazon UK or another online seller.

Last Friday at 21:30 hours the book was finally launched! Not in a NASA sense — although cover artist David A Hardy was on hand. And if you know David, you’ll also know that he has painted many super space-related images — check out his website (astroart.org) and you’ll see what we mean.

Were we we? Oh yes: Anne Nicholls’ latest collection Music From the Fifth Planet — packed full with goodies old and new) — was launched at a well-attended session at Novacon 45, held this weekend in Nottingham.

At the same time, NewCon Press launched a new Orcs collection, Tales of Maras-Dantia, from Anne’s husband, the best-selling author Stan Nicholls. There was much wine and cheeriness.

Anne’s stories have also appeared in The Alchemy Press books, Ancient Wonders, Urban Mythic, Pulp Heroesand Swords Against the Millennium (along with a story from Stan).
