Forever Avon - Call for Writers!
KentishSpaceRat
Greetings fellow Blake's 7 fans!

I am planning on producing an unofficial short story book in memory of Paul Darrow and to raise money for the World Wildlife Fund.

The book, titled 'Forever Avon' will be a collection of short stories chronicling various points in Kerr Avon's life, from his childhood and doomed love affair with Anna Grant to his reluctant career as a Hero of the Rebellion.

I already have a dozen or so fan fiction writers willing to contribute short stories (including Horizon's very own Supreme Commanders Jackie Emery and Annie Worrall) but I'm still on the look out for more submissions, which is were I hope some of you can come in!

I'm looking for 1,000 - 3,000 word short stories, it can be set during any period of the show's timeline and there's no guidelines to what you can and can't write about but it must heavily feature and/or involve Avon as a main protagonist.

This is a strictly non profit enterprise with no official endorsement from the Terry Nation estate (despite my earnest attempts to contact them) which means you will be essentialy offering your services for free BUT you will retain sole copyright of your work and I am currently investigating into trying to arrange discounts for every contributor.

If you are interested in contributing and/or have any further questions about the project then please PM me or Annie.

Oliver has kindly supplied some more details for anyone interested in this excellent project:

The Horizon forum has been the only place that that the "Forever Avon" project has been publicly announced so far. A dedicated Facebook (and possibly also a Twitter) page will be set up later in the year.

In general, the stories are designed to be standalone.

It's totally fine if you want to just write a standard B7 adventure with the other lead characters but just make sure that Avon plays a big role in the story's development (whether it's having the last laugh in an argument with Blake or solving the problem and being the hero of the day).

The same applies to point of view stories: as long it's about Avon or his mindset then there's no problem. You could even write one from the POV of another character.

At this stage the plan is to publish the book through Lulu.com's print-on-demand service. The editor is looking to get discount codes so everyone involved can get theirs at a cheaper price. Contributors retain copyright of their work but will be asked to wait a year from publication date before submitting their work elsewhere.

The cover is already planned but the editor is open to further art submissions including logos.

Sounds like a great plan!

Do we have an idea of the dead-line?

If I have enough of a head start I can probably contribute providing I can use my pseud.

Iím in obviously. Fic within a whisker of being submitted.
Just because I can't sing doesn't mean I won't.

There's currently no deadline but the aim is to try and get it done as soon as humanly possible, preferably in time for the first anniversary of Paul's passing next year.

I've just hastily done a first draft...and noticed that I can go upto 3000 words. So I can work on it and when Lurena returns from her hols she can look at it and maybe do one of her drawings.
Cold.....you don't know the meaning of cold.
Cold is when you have ice on the INSIDE of the window!!!

Can the stories be ones that have been previously published on AO3, or here on Horizon?

No worries Sue, don't feel like you have to extend it if you don't want to though. I'm sure it'll be good whatever the word count! Smile
