Merry-Go-Round by Bryn Fortey – Latest Alchemy Title

In today – the latest title from The Alchemy Press

Merry-Go-Round and Other Words 

Bryn Fortey has enjoyed a lifelong flirtation with words. His first sale was “A Saleable 1001592_701483779874272_1019161823_nCommodity” to International Storyteller in 1969.  Bryn’s first horror story publication was “Prison” in David Sutton’s New Writings in Horror & The Supernatural 1 in 1971. The similarly titled New Writings in SF 28, edited by Ken Bulmer, included his first science fiction sale, “Wordsmith”, in 1976. Bryn’s poem “A Taxi Driver On Mars” was placed first in the Data Dump Awards for SF poems published in the UK during 2008 and was nominated for the American Rhysling Anthology the following year.

Following a break from writing during a period of family bereavements, his comeback story was “Ithica or Bust” in The Alchemy Press Book of Ancient Wonders edited by Jan Edwards and Jenny Barber in 2012.

Bryn and The Alchemy Press are pleased to announce Merry-Go-Round & Other Stories, the best of Bryn Fortey, to be published in 2014 — with an introduction by Johnny Mains. “Merry-Go-Round” was lead story in Mary Danby’s 12th Fontana Book of Great Horror Stories (1979).

Copies of this book will be available at the Birmingham Indie Book Fair at the Ikon Gallery, Birmingham.

Available to pre order from Amazon here – for release on 12th April
