NewCon Press has rapidly established a fine tradition of publishing short story collections by SF’s rising stars. This Eastercon sees the launch of "The Peacock Cloak" by Chris Beckett, "Across The Event Horizon" by Mercurio D. Rivera and "Microcosmos" by Nina Allan, and the joint launch with Solaris of Solaris Rising 2, featuring authors including Paul Cornell, Kim Lakin-Smith, Martin Sketchley, Adrian Tchaikovsky and Neil Williamson.
