The latest short story by Powers, The Hour of Babel, is due to be published imminently in the long awaited anthology Subterranean Tales of Dark Fantasy. As well as the Powers story, this collection of all new stories features work by some fantastic genre names - Mike Carey (one of my fave authors!) Joe Lansdale (likewise) and Joe Hill to name but a few. The book is due for release towards the end of July, but copies are available now for pre-order. Follow this link to Amazon.com to order your copy, and help this site in the process.

Additionally, Pat St Denis of top reviewing blog Pat's Fantasy Hotlist has been in touch to tell us of a competition he's running - on offer is a copy of Subterranean Tales of Dark Fantasy and all you gotta do is follow the instructions here. I just entered! You'd be mad not to!
