We have 48 hours to decide whether mini-IP is going back to school. I’ve a horrible feeling her mental health is starting to take a beating from all this weirdness. She’s increasingly sad and snappy, although often puts a brave face on things. Our ongoing issues with immigration can’t be helping the house mood. Even so, I can’t imagine she’ll be going back next week.

Perhaps at least the change in the weather might slow the spread of the virus — unless it prompts idiots meeting outside to instead all head to IKEA.

I thought Finder & Keeper was rather sweet. I’m sure that’ll irk a certain chunk of the existing readership, but it worked for me as a one-and-done. Anderson was really strong (and had actual peril) — that would have sat well in the existing Prog, for the most part. I was less taken by the rest this time around, in part because things seemed a bit inconsequential.

Wedgski - Pushing Ice is a personal Fave of mine from Mr Reynolds.

I've got both Permafrost and Bone silence in my read pile of his.
Thanks Bolt, I'll make that the next one.

Have you read any Peter Hamilton? I don't want to burn out on space opera, but he's often mentioned in the same breath as Reynols, Banks, etc.

Clap, clap clap.

Eamonn is spot-on here. The amount of folk talking as if this is all over is frankly, astounding.

Yup - I agree. I could see that being a big hit.

Hey Squaxx - special heads-up!

FQP are pleased to announce that from today, June 3rd to August 31st they are open to new scripts.

FQP titles FutureQuake and Something Wicked are two premiere level titles with a focus on new talent & developing talent and a proven track record in help new creatives hone their skills. Scripts are being welcomed for both titles- script length of ideally 4-6 pages with a ‘twist’ in the tail.

The 2000 AD fanzines Dogbreath & Zarjaz are still open to scripts so there is room for writers of all levels to contribute.

Note that all scripts will be read in the order received and only short stories are being sought. FQP do not publish serials or complete graphic novels.

If accepted, writers will be informed of the next steps towards getting the script commissioned and turned into a comic strip.

Currently both titles can accommodate around 40 strips a year, so it may be that scripts have a significant delay between acceptance and commission. If that is an issue to you, keep in touch with editorial to see where you are in the lists.

Send all script submissions to futurequakepress@googlemail.com and good luck.

I've adjusted the number and Tag-line, so things should tie-up better now. I'm not reading spoiler threads till I get my prog.

Praise be to TMO and all the droids for keeping it together and getting the prog out.

I'd love to know what the rationale is for the cover design this week. I don't get the black box at all. Why not crop into Steve's linework? There must be a reason, so I'm just wondering.
Hope is brilliant, but I don't think Adams's body of work is really large enough to compete with Ennis. Yes he was a bit hit and miss, but more hits in my opinion. So I vote for Ennis.
