The occasional round-up of stuff, Pornokitsch-related and otherwise. This time in reverse order: us stuff first, then some links, interesting and sundry.
Molly Tanzer's new novel - Vermilion - is out now, and already receiving rave reviews (not least of which would be the Library Journal tagging it as Debut of the Month). Links to get your copy of this steampunk, gender-bending, alternate history, ghost-busting, Weird Western spectacular are here.
We're hosting "Composting with Sandworms" - an event on 19 May as part of the Chelsea Fringe, London's alternative gardening festival. This year's theme, as you might guess, is Dune, and we've got the Royal Observatory's Marek Kukula and craftmistress Lauren O'Farrell and Dune's publishers Hodder & Stoughton and The Folio Society all on board. We'll be wanging on about this a bit more later, but tickets are already on sale. (And quite limited.)
A reminder: we're still open for submissions for our Weekly Fiction feature. Keep 'em coming. There are also other subs opportunities on the horizon for Jurassic London, you can read more about them here.
Finally - and this is a particularly annoying teaser - but we're doing a big thing on Tuesday. You'll may want to swing by and see what's happening, say, around 2-ish.
Below the jump: links, rants, stats and vampires.
