voices from the past

Voices from the PastA new eBook publishing company, called H&H Books, has been created recently by writer Scott Harrison and editor Lee Harris.

It will specialise in science fiction, fantasy and horror fiction, and will publish works to benefit a number of charitable causes.

I’m pleased to mention that a story of mine will appear in the company’s first project, an anthology of flash fiction, entitled Voices from the Past.

The table of contents will include writers such as Alastair Reynolds, Paul Magrs, Kaaron Warren, Jasper Fforde, Sarah Pinborough, Juliet McKenna and Paul Cornell. The cover art is by Vincent Chong.

The anthology will be sold for just 59p/$0.99 through all major eBook outlets, with 100% of proceeds benefiting Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital.

Even though I live in Ireland I’m familiar with the terrific work that Great Ormond Street does, since over the years many children from Ireland have been treated there. A nephew of a friend of mine received excellent care from the hospital while he had on-going treatment, and a series of operations, to treat a congenital heart condition.

I’m delighted to contribute in my small way to such an admirable cause.

Voices from the Past is scheduled to be published in April 2011 to coincide with Illustrious, the Eastercon SF convention, which is taking place in Birmingham, UK.
