Andrew Hook of Elastic Press is now answering questions (aka 'helping the blogger with his enquiries').

Chris Teague of Pendragon has also volunteered to be interviewed, so if anybody has questions for him, let me know, but by the end of the day as time is pressing (I shall repeat a few of the ones put to Andrew, see if we get the same answers).

And the interview with Paul Meloy has gone live:-

It's all happening round here :D

Des has also agreed to put himself in the firing line, with the BFA nominated anthology "Cone Zero", and we're hoping something a little different can be organised for that.

I'm now going to abandon regular posting and just stick things on the blog as they arrive, so everybody who's taking part gets some exposure before BFA voting closes.

Thanks to everyone who asked questions, including those which couldn't be asked because this is a family site :lol:

Interview with Des Lewis also now live:-

http://ttapress.com/647/ten-writers-que ... ditor/0/5/

This time we got some contributors to Nemonymous to pose questions for their editor (less work for me).

In other news, I discovered a copy of "The Virtual Menagerie" by Andrew Hook, the first Elastic publication, going for £500 on amazon:-

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Virtual-Menager ... 310&sr=1-1

Questions for Chris Teague of Pendragon will be sent out shortly, so watch this space.

If anybody else wishes to be featured, I'm cool with that, but it won't be for a few days, as I think we need a bit of time to digest what's already been posted, and I need some time to finish the Case Notes for BS#12.

Elastic Press may have sold out of most of the collections, but BBR Online still has dozens of them in stock. And at cover price too. It's also a good place to find TTA Press magazines that are out of print, such as these, for example.

Bob Lock ('The Cone Zero Ultimatum'): In a couple of the Nemonymous books you have a story or two by someone who remains unidentified, can you confirm or deny that one such anonymous author is none other than J.K.Rowling?

DFL: I am obliged by contractual agreement to neither confirm nor deny.


Neither confirmed or denied, eh?
I knew it!

Des should be a politician :)

Okay, that "Virtual Menagerie" is now priced at £5. And you thought the value of your house was dropping quickly :o

Damn - if it had gone at that price I'd have listed my sole copy for £500 too!

Yeah, but yours can be signed by the author, so £501 :lol:

I reckon the seller lurks on these forums, saw the comment and realised they'd got a decimal point in the wrong place.

Okay, we have Chris of Pendragon quietly chiselling away at the answers to some questions I sent, kindly provided by you, the general public.

I may have two more people in the pipeline. I won't announce them, as I'm not sure they're game on yet. I replied to their queries, but haven't heard back.

Time is running out, with last date for BFA votes the 31st. If anyone else is interested in doing something for this, then please get in contact with me before midnight on Tuesday the 21st, as I'm not going to take any more on after that.

You can contact me by email to whitenoise@ttapress.com, by PM or simply post on here.

I am now officially closed to any further BFA features, so if you haven't put your bid in as yet, sorry, you have lost out.

Questions have been sent out to Simon Bestwick, and Selina Lock of The Girly Comic, and I'll post those as soon as possible.

Last in the door is Allen Ashley, editor of the Elastic Press BFA nominated anthology "Subtle Edens", and I am now taking questions for him, if anybody has some.

The usual - PM me, email me at my usual address or via whitenoise@ttapress.com or post them here.

I have a question for your Alcoholics Anonymous thread, Pete. As i grow older I find my drinking problem worsening, what do you suggest I do?

Oh... my problem... I'm beginning to spill most of my beer before I get it into my mouth...

Thanks,
Anonymously,
Bob
