Editorial Board Changes
TDWP is sad to report that Editor Robert Mammone has decided to step down from the position to spend more time concentrating on his professional writing career. All of us at TDWP have enjoyed working with Rob and we’re extremely sad to see him move on but we completely understand his reasons. TDWP Range Editor Bob Furnell commented, “Rob is both a brilliant writer and an excellent editor. He’s been the glue to the project for the past several years. It’s been a pleasure working with him these past few years.”
Rob first joined TDWP as a writer in 2008 contributing “Dreadnought” for Season 35 and the Brief Encounter story “Fear The Dark” in 2009. He joined the Editorial Board as an Assistant Editor in 2011 and advanced to the position of Editor in January 2012 where he’s overseen both the main TDWP and Brief Encounters ranges. Rob has written for publications like the British Fantasy Society, Pseudopod.org, Midnight Echo, April Moon Books, and Dark Minds Press. Everyone wishes Rob well in his future endeavours.
Taking over the vacant Editor’s post will be current Range Consultant Jez Strickley. Jez first joined TDWP back in 2006 as a Story Reviewer and eventually contributed his first story “The Wax Museum” in 2009 and has gone one to pen a further six stories to the project. Jez currently lives in Italy, where he has been teaching for more than ten years.
TDWP Range Editor Bob Furnell commented, “I’m sad to see Rob go but at the same time I’m looking forward to continue working with Jez. Unfortunately this now leaves the Assistant Editor post vacant, which we hope to fill in the coming months.”
