'The Jabberwock' by Mervyn Peake

The Best of British Fantasy 2019 is now open for submissions.

Please read all the details carefully before sending your work.

The Best of British Fantasy 2019 is scheduled for publication next spring, from NewCon Press. As is the (new) tradition, a 'recommended reading' list will also be published alongside the final selections.

The series also has a companion website at, which will continue to host an ongoing discussion of iconic works of British fantasy, with reviews and reading guides written by authors and fans.

Details on how to submit stories to the anthology and how to contribute to the website are available here.

Finally, please do share this link broadly.

I'm keen to cast a wide net, and have the BoBF series represent the full spectrum of British voices, talents, backgrounds and experiences.
