NewCon Press was intended to be a hobby, a project that I tinkered with for my own amusement in the spare time between writing, but somehow it’s developed into a great deal more than that, and, ten years on, I find myself looking at everything we’ve produced and wondering, “How the heck did that happen?”
X Marks the Spot is a slender anthology produced to celebrate our first ten years. It includes original fiction and poetry from Adam Roberts, Rozanne Rabinowitz, Donna Scott and Paul Melhuish, a collaborative short story written by myself, Ian Watson, Hal Duncan, Chaz Brenchley, Sarah Singleton, Andrew Hook and others which has been out of print for some seven years, and a section detailing every writer and artist who has contributed to NewCon’s first decade.
