Ticonderoga Publications joins Paul Haines Fund [Aug. 4th, 2008|09:35 pm]
Ticonderoga Publications is joining in the effort to raise funds for Paul Haines.

Ticonderoga will donate $10 from the sale of each of its titles sold in August through its online store: http://www.ticonderogapublications.com/catalog/

Paul Haines, a much-loved member of the Aussie sf commuity is going through a tough time. After being diagnosed with bowel cancer, having sections of his bowel removed and enduring six months worth of chemotherapy, he has recently discovered he has spots on his liver. Paul has met this news by reloading his guns and is going to fight it with two other forms of chemotherapy for cancers like his, combined with a monoclonal antibody called Avastin. Avastin, however is not part of Medicare or the private health system's funding at this stage. It costs $20,000 to do it. Money that he doesn't have.

Ticonderoga Publications has not set a limit on its donation, and hopes to raise in excess of $1000.

Ticonderoga Update [Jan. 13th, 2008|01:17 pm]
[mood |accomplished]

Firstly, apologies to everyone waiting for any sort of response from the Ticonderoga Team.

It has been a turbulent 12 months, and we're only just beginning to feel that the clouds are clearing. We haven't forgotten about you, just been otherwise occupied.

We are planning on bouncing back in 2008, including a fairly full publishing schedule, but Ticonderoga Online and the dead tree editions, and will get through our backlog of reading and correspondence.

We're looking to restart the whole shebang in February with TiconderogaOnline 12/13, a double issue to partially make up for last year's lapses, and will follow this up with a new publication in March.

More details shortly. In the meantime, please feel free to check out the two titles published by Ticonderoga Publications in 2007, Fantastic Wonder Stories, edited by yours truly and featuring 5 stories shortlisted for Aurealis Awards, and The Workers' Paradise, edited by myself and Nick Evans, published lat last year just in time to bring down the government.

Ticonderoga Publications enters the eBook Market [Apr. 23rd, 2007|11:10 pm]
Ticonderoga Publications first eBook, a reprint of the 1997 collection Ghost Seas, is now available.

Steven Utley, one of the most promising writers of the seventies, quit at the end of the decade, disillusioned with science fiction. He spent the eighties pursuing other interests, including writing and drawing comic strips and collecting swing-era music. He returned to writing in the late eighties, writing stories unique and powerful, regardless of genre: western, horror, science fiction, history, love, mystery.

Ghost Seas is a collection of fourteen stories from the twenty-five year career of an extremely talented writer. Contents: "Ghost Seas", "The Tall Grass", "The Dinosaur Season", "Upstart", "Two Women of the Prairie", "Race Relations", "The Electricity of Heaven", "Dog in the Manger", "Slices of Sylvia", "Willow Beeman" (Steven Utley & Howard Waldrop), "Haiti", "Michael Bates Michael Bates Michael Bates Michael", "Look Away", "Edge of the Wind".

Includes a Foreword by Michael Bishop and an Introduction by Howard Waldrop.
