The anthology is sold for the benefit of The Red Kite Academy in Corby, Northamptonshire, a 'richly diverse community in which children with many special needs, languages, cultures and religions learn together in harmony'. All authors have contributed their work for free, and you can pre-order your copy here.
In addition to this, there is now a special walking tour of Mike's books: M. W. Craven's Cumbria, which gives fans the opportunity to walk in the footsteps of Washington Poe (made famous by Craven's books beginning with the CWA-nominated The Puppet Show), and discover a different side of Cumbria, "off the beaten track yet full of magical sites". The tour takes place over 5 days and is the perfect bookish getaway.

The event, sponsored by HarperFiction, will see the two ladies in conversation with HarperCollins' Lynn Drew, regarding their latest books, Christmas for the Shop Girls and A Wedding at the Beach Hut, respectively.

His is a dragon, brought low by the hand of a dark magician known as the Worm King, separated from his true love, tortured for centuries and now trapped inside the body of a human. But with the memories of his old life comes a return of his true magic, and with it, his true form is slowly returning. And Stratus wants revenge. Bloody and relentless, he slaughters his way through hordes of the undead to reach his archenemy, fighting not only for his own justice but for the whole of humanity...
The book is due for publication from Rebellion in May 2021, and the first in the series, Infernal, will be republished, also by Rebellion, later this month.
