Bl Live Chapbook

30 January, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

From my editor Nick Kyme‘s blog, the cover of the BL Live chapbook has emerged, and it looks fantastic:

I had the genuine pleasure of reading Nick’s story when the proofs came in, and it’s another slice of Salamander awesomeness – anyone who’s been following Dak’ir’s development will be in for a treat.

Writing a 5,000 word short story (as they both are, I think) is a surprisingly difficult thing. Most BL short stories in the anthologies are about 8-10,000 words. That extra bit might not sound very much, but it gives a little more elbow room for plot and character development. The best short stories are built around some kind of twist or motif, and setting that up requires room. Squeezing everything into a shorter format was therefore a great exercise in keeping things concise – I’d recommend it to anyone who enjoys writing in the Warhammer universe.

Anyway, it’s all short stories for me right now. Death and Dishonour has picked up its first review, and it’s hearteningly good – check it out here. As for Feast of Horrors, I’m really looking forward to discussing the genesis of that on 13 Feb with anyone who comes along for a chat.
