Alex Bell launches new website

Alex Bell, the distressingly young and talented author of The Ninth Circle and the forthcoming Jasmyn, has set up a new website at this location. Interestingly, she appears to be taking self-promotion lessons from the shy and retiring Joe Abercrombie and it must be said, what better role model can there be*?

As linked by Graeme at the Fantasy Book Review, a plethora of young, up 'n' coming fantasy authors including Alex, Joe, David Devereux, Tom Lloyd, Mark Chadbourn, Jon Courtney Grimwood, Suzanne McLeod, Steven Savile and James Swallow will be carrying out a signing at Forbidden Planet in London at 5pm on January 22nd, which it looks like I may be attending, so it will be good to see people there!

* Note: not a rhetorical question. Answers not to exceed 25 suggestions. 'Darth Sidious' is an acceptable answer.

Thanks for this link.

Must admit I cracked up at Joe Abercrombie being called old Applecrumble by David Devereux.

Looks like the start of a lively blog.

What can I say, Wend? We do tend to mock each other somewhat on the Gollancz list. You should hear some of the other nick-names!

I'm rather amused by the idea of Jon being a young up'n'coming novelist. Has anyone told him?

I did realise that might be debatable (I've been reading his SFX reviews alone for about ten years). But young at heart still counts, surely?
