The highest bidder will receive the opportunity to have Jonathan Oliver, editor-in-chief of both Abaddon and Solaris books, edit a short story.
Minimum Bid: £5.00
I will gladly give my time to edit your short story; be it horror, fantasy, SF or even
(god-forbid!) ‘literary’ fiction. Short stories should be no greater than 10,000 words (otherwise we’re entering novella territory people).
So, if you want the benefit of Jon’s wisdom and his experience in genre, get bidding!

After five years working for Taylor & Francis academic publishers, Oliver started working for Rebellion as Graphic Novels Editor on the 2000 AD line in 2006, and launched the Abaddon Books genre fiction imprint. When Rebellion bought the Solaris Books imprint from BL Publishing, Oliver became Editor-in-Chief of both the Abaddon and Solaris imprints.
Oliver’s first book as author, Twilight of Kerberos: The Call of Kerberos, the sixth book in Abaddon’s Twilight of Kerberos series, was published in October 2009. In September 2010, Abaddon announced the sequel, Twilight of Kerberos: The Wrath of Kerberos, also by Oliver, for a November 2011 publication date. The book has been described as the “beginning of the end” of the shared world series’ overarching storyline.
Oliver’s first anthology as editor, The End of the Line: An Anthology of Underground Horror, was launched by Solaris at Fantasycon in Nottingham in September 2010. In October 2010, Solaris announced Oliver’s second anthology, House of Fear: An Anthology of Haunted House Stories, due for publication in October 2011.
