Just a few of the pages from The Ever More Fantastical Art of Jim Pitts, which will be published in hardcover later this year. 




 

Since we brought out The Fantastical Art of Jim Pitts in 2017 Jim has been constantly busy, including interior artwork for Elak: King of Atlantis and After Nightfall & Other Weird Tales, covers for Phantasmagoria magazine, and a host of other projects, with new techniques and fresh designs. 

The Ever More Fantastical Art of Jim Pitts will be a fitting sequel to the first volume, published in hardcover and packed with black and white and full-colour illustrations.

All pre-ordered copies will be signed by Jim Pitts and will include 5 black & white or colour prints (please select from here) and will be posted as soon as the book is published.

Change of cover for Swords & Sorceries: Tales of Heroic Fantasy Volume 2

We are considering a change to the cover for the second volume of our Swords & Sorceries: Tales of Heroic Fantasy anthology. The artist is still Jim Pitts. 

Meanwhile we are still reading submissions for the second volume. The submissions period ends on the 30th April, after which the full TOC will hopefully be announced towards the end of the first week in May.

Submissions: Swords & Sorceries: Tales of Heroic Fantasy Volume 2

We have had quite a few submissions so far, but surprisingly many just aren't swords and sorcery, but are either science fiction or just straight fantasy. 

It really would be useful for those concerned to spend a little time in looking up just what swords and sorcery is, maybe by reading some first. I must admit when I submit a story somewhere I always try to make certain the story I am sending is appropriate for the market.  

Please note: We will not be sending out any responses till after the close of the submissions period at the end of this month. 

To get a better idea of the kind of stories we are likely to publish in this anthology check out volume 1:
