Much news. Our next issue 49 has been posted as I write and is a stonker, another chapter of Roberts next book, some musings from the man himself about what he has been up to of late and a host of other fact and weird fiction.
Please rejoin now to get this issue, from our online sproutshop.
In other news, the launch of Necrophenia has been put back until December. This is in order to capitalise on Roberts next book being his 30th. So the wrap party at Gunnersby has been cancelled I am afraid.
We are looking at making Zombiecon the Sproutlore event of the summer, and with Necrophenia having a Zombie theme it should tie in nicely. Robert has said that he wants to host a party at Zombiecon to celebrate something big and we will even have bookplates.
Robert has also started a Find a Gig For Rankin Appeal as he outlines below on the sproutlore forum so help get the master to your town:
I am asking each of you to approach your local bookstore and ask if they would like me to do a signing there next January. It is the publication of my thirtieth book and I want to do a thirty signings tour. Now I know that it is the job of my publicist to do this sort of thing and he is doing so. But. If I get your help I can go to places which tend to get forgotten or left off the list or suchlike.
So. please check out your local bookstore and ask whether they would be interested in being part of the BIG THIRTY TOUR. And if they say yes, post the details, name of manager (or event organiser or whoever), name of bookstore and address, email and phone number and I will take it from there.
The mercury should be with members in about a week or less so keep eyes peeled, and get all the details and much more
