Here’s the cover art for Weak and Wounded, the new mini-collection from Brian James Freeman, following on from his previous mini-collection, More Than Midnight. Weak and Wounded comprises of five haunting stories featuring characters searching for answers to deeply troubling questions, and also includes interior illustrations by Glenn Chadbourne.
As with the cover art for More Than Midnight, the approach I took for this was to create a portrait image that embodies the emotions and feel of this collection of stories.
Weak and Wounded will be out from Cemetery Dance Publications soon.
Memoria del Sange, a new Italian-language paranormal thriller by Gianfranco Nerozzi is being released today by Mezzotints Ebook in various ebook formats. There is a book trailer and sample reading available on Youtube for you to check out.

I’m back from World Fantasy Con – it was a brilliant convention and I had a wonderful time, though I’m now paying for all the drinking and late nights! As ever, it was great to catch up with old friends and make new ones. The organizers all worked very hard and did a fantastic job putting this convention together, so huge thanks to them all for making it such a fun and memorable event.
For me the Con was finished off perfectly by receiving the World Fantasy Award for Best Artist on Sunday, which was the icing on the cake! It was an honour to be shortlisted along with the other great artists, and a very pleasant surprise to be announced as the winner. You can see the full list of winners here.
The David Gemmell Awards and British Fantasy Society Awards were also announced during the Con and you can see the winners here and here respectively. A big congrats to all the award winners and nominees!
I will be at World Fantasy Con in Brighton from October 31 – November 3 and will be displaying some work in the art show. There will be an artists’ reception on Saturday from 5-7pm where you can meet the artists who are exhibiting, so if you’re attending, please come along and say ‘Hi’!
