Fantasycon is this coming weekend in Chester, and I am involved in a few interesting events and readings. Hope to see some friendly faces!
THE SHADOW BOOTH: FRIDAY OCTOBER 19TH - 8:30 PM
Enter the Shadow Booth, and you will never be the same again... Join The Shadow Booth, the journal of weird and eerie fiction, for an hour of strange and unsettling readings from their first two volumes, as well as a few new surprises. Introduced by journal editor Dan Coxon, readings by Mark Morris, Gary Budden, Timothy J. Jarvis and George Sandison.
READING: SATURDAY OCTOBER 20TH – 9PM
I’m reading with two fantastic writers – Priya Sharma (author of All the Fabulous Beasts) and Tim Major (author of the upcoming Snakeskins, that coincidentally I edited).
STRANGE FICTION - SUNDAY OCTOBER 21ST – 1PM
I’m on a panel discussing strange fiction with Andrew Hook, Duncan P. Bradshaw, Georgina Bruce, James Everington, and Jan Edwards. Surreal and twisted narratives designed to defamiliarise you are often the places where we find the most risk taking and innovation. Our panel explore strangeness, and weird writing that refuses to submit to the patterns of a genre or a specific theme.
