Howard Andrew Jones of Black Gate Magazine paid me a compliment in his Dragon*Con
Report, saying “Now — gasp — sword-and-sorcery seems to be undergoing a renaissance
at some of the big publishers. I’ve found a home at... but talented authors like...
Bruce Durham... are still out there awaiting discovery.” Thanks for the shout-out,
Mr. Jones. Hear that, editors?
Locus Online recently announced Toronto would host the 2012 World Fantasy Convention,
set for November 1 - 4. Not sure of the venue yet. I read somewhere the theme would
be ‘Urban Fantasy’ and ‘Northern Gothic’. Ugh! Still, I’ll be there.

Sha’Daa: Last Callis available for purchase from Altered Dimensions Press. The shared
world anthology features a dozen gripping stories set in the near future, where every
10,000 years a two-day rift opens between Earth and the many dimensions that harbour
demons and other creatures of myth and legend.
My tale, Deathstalk, takes place on board the HMCS Toronto, an ultra-modern frigate
patrolling the dangerous waters of the Indian Ocean. Their mission, as it happens,
is far from routine. The true danger they face does not come from some common enemy,
but from a portal that has opened deep within the bowels of the ship itself.
