The Contest of Night closed last night at midnight, leaving me with a tough decision to make. As ever, the entries were all impressive, and I’ll be sharing some of my favourites on Twitter and Facebook later today. But, this is a contest, and that means there has to be a winner. And that winner is… (more…)
I recently got some author’s copies in, and rather than add them all to the pile, I’ve decided it’s contest time again. So, grab your sigmarite shield and throw a saddle over the dread abyssal, it’s time for the Contest of Night. Mortarch of Night, that is. (more…)
I’ve got a new book coming out this week, which means a stack of author copies on my desk and nowhere to put them. So it’s contest time once again. Specifically, ‘The Furious Contest of Gork (or maybe Mork)’. (more…)
The Crawling Contest of Ghur officially closed last night at midnight, leaving me with around fifty entries to pore over.

So, here’s the thing…I don’t have enough space in my office. And I’ve got too many books. Especially books with my name on them. Stacks and stacks of contributor copies, taking up valuable shelf space. Periodically, I’ll give these away, one or two at a time, or else dump a load on some unsuspecting charity shop, but I’ve decided to change things up this year. Try and be a bit clever about it, yeah? So, I thought: contest. Everybody likes contests, right? (more…)
