We are delighted to welcome Mark Stay back to the Gollancz Blog. Mark is part of the Gollancz sales team. Today he shares his memories of his very first Eastercon.

Ten years ago I enjoyed/suffered/endured my first ever Eastercon as part of the Gollancz team. Looking back at my diary it’s interesting just how little of the actual conference I chronicled — mostly because I was away filming authors — but I must have liked it, as I’ve been back … More

Absolutely thrilled that today sees the big reveal of the ROBOT OVERLORDS collectors’ film poster over at Empire Online.

Director Jon Wright and I wanted to capture the feel of those classic ‘80s Amblin movies with our film and this poster does exactly that.
