How come Zoetrope All Story gets a page spread in the London Evening Standard and no mention of Brit equivalents, unless one P Geldof is involved?

One reason, TTA's publicity person is not up to much. Another; no blonde hair and related accoutrements. Probably the former though.

Anyone know this Jenny Wilhide?

What's the TTA Press promotional surgery fund looking like at the moment, Roy? :wink:

Another failure for the publicity 'department'. (sounds so much better than 'me')

A whole spiel on Chris Beckett's Edgehill Prize nomination in the Cambridge News today and one only single mention of IZ.
Well done Chris anyway.

Roy - stop focussing on your failures and let's start taking a positive spin by listing all the GOOD you've done for TTA press over the years.

Okay, I know it doesn't look great, so far, dude - but we ALL love you.


(okay - that WAS a joke - apologies if my sense of humour occasionally comes at you all with a blade-edge).

Trouble is...

I can't argue with that.

Dude, I'm sure you're doing the work of ten men. Stop beating yourself up about it - I've only been back five minutes, and I like you already. That's good publicity, because I'm rich, loud-mouthed AND stupid....ask Andy. :-)

I concur... I've seen you in action at the dealer's table, Roy; I reckon the lack of buyers is all down to Jetse scaring them off. :wink:

As for Zoetrope, it probably helps having Francis Ford Copolla's name attached; does Andy know any rich celebrities/film directors?

TTA on the BBC! Our estimable electronic editions editor Pete Bullock was interviewed by Jamillah Knowles for the BBC's 'Up all Night' programme 4th January edition.
These interviews have usually been podcast on the radio 5 website but that looks as though it will not continue in the new year as the latest podcast is entitled Goodbye and the website does state
Quote:
As part of a short trial, episodes of this podcast will be available until the end of December 2009.


There is a listen again facility and I'll post a link and details when I have them.

As I wrote above Pete Bullock, our electronic editions editor, was interviewed by Jamillah Knowles for the BBC Radio 5’s 'Up all Night' programme 4/5 th January edition.
Her interviews are also podcast,see the Up all Night Pods and Blogs websiteand that has continued into the new year after all. So you can hear Pete talking about Transmissions from Beyond via the ‘listen again’ facility or download the podcast and listen at your leisure.
Podcasts are usually available for at least a week but until recently Up all Night’s Pods and Blogs have been available for longer. The podcast featuring Pete is entitled ‘Fresh start to another year online, 04 Jan 09’ and is dated Tue, 5 Jan 2010. Pete’s interview fills the final 5 to 10 minutes of the podcast/stream.

Download podcast: http://www.bbc.co.uk/podcasts/series/pods/ and the streaming link is on the same page.

Another missed oportunity. If I 'd ensured we had a bucket of Mutant Popcorn on the website we'd have a link on the Guardian website

Well done the BSFA's publicity person but no praise for TTA's useless publicity department.
Well done also Adam Roberts for the nomination and good on Kim Stanley Robinson for giving Alison Flood the hook for her piece.

And of course plaudits for Nick Lowe, for 25 years of Mutant Popcorn, and his BSFA nomination for the 24th year.

Reviews Editor Jim Steel's Blogis up at Incwriters. Jim has written this week's attempt to get our message across to those who have no knowledge of Interzone and SF magazines. However the overtly commercial messages and images towards the end are all my fault.

Link Typo edited.

And a big thanks to Roy for knocking it into shape at such short notice. I've had a deadline log-jam 'cos of recent computers woes, but - hey - excuses, eh? I guess I'm just a deadline surfer.
