Well spotted Rosanne, You're correct and I got it completely wrong.
Alison Littlewood will be reading from A Cold Season at Fantasycon 2011 on Sunday 2 Oct at 10 am, Rosanne Rabinowitz follows at 11am, possibly with Gaie Sebold inbetween, and then I have the 11:30 am slot and have to find a suitable embarrassment free section to read from The Joy of Technology. All happening in the Bar Rogue at the Royal Albion Hotel.

I might as well say that I'll be reading from Helen's Story, a novella that will be published by PS in the spring. (Some of you may have met the main character, Helen Vaughan, in Arthur Machen's The Great God Pan - except she's alive and well and living in Shoreditch in my book.)

And I might read one or two other bits and bobs, depending on how the timing works out.

We're there for the whole weekend Roy, and will definately pop along to say hi. Maybe I'll read something myself next time - if I'm really lucky I'll be able to promote a collection. In the meantime, I'll sit back and enjoy everybody else's work! :lol:

Same here! But were you at the Never Again launch last year?

Author:  Ray [ Wed Sep 21, 2011 9:03 am ]
Post subject: 

Yeah, same here, it will be good to put some faces to names - looking forward to meeting people I'veread! :D So far teaching has got in the way of all such events and launches, so no I didn't make it for Never Again (or maybe I already had a copy? can't remember) but I managed to book some teching cover last year for this year (got in there QUICK, with capitals) so this time not only can I go but I can be there from kick off Friday! Hurray!

Can't wait...

I hope to get there Friday afternoon, but now there's a chance I might have to do a day of training for a new job. So I might be there in the evening instead.

I'll be reading on the Friday night at 9:30 - can't remember where in the hotel - to promote my new collection of short stories, "Nitrospective". Hope to see some of you there - or in the bar :)

Ralph Alcock'slatest novel, The Loving Son, bids to continue his progress as a powerful new voice in crime fiction. He reads from the proofs of the new book due out later this month. Ralph lived and worked in the USA before returning to England and writes fiction set in the USA. His first novel was 'Hidden Identity'.
Richard Ayres began his acute explorations of modern life and mores with 'Waterloo Sunset'. His latest ‘A Pennine Incident’ continues to expand his reputation as a chronicler of the relationships between people and the times they inhabit. Sunset'
Phil Emery's'The Shadow Cycles' is the follow-up novel to his Potteries set 'Necromantra'. And in the year when Conan the Barbarian returns to cinema screens, the book also attempts to revision the genre of sword-&-sorcery for the twenty-first century.
My 12,000-word novelette 'The Joy of Technology'is a chapbook published by Pendragon Press of South Wales. If its title resonates you will not be surprised that this is more than explicit in its look at future technology. My anthologised story 'Being of Sound Mind' may have to be the source of this reading. Roy
Gill Hargreavesperformed with Prospect Productions theatre company before working for Radio Stoke. She reads from her debut novel, 'A Triangular Affair' which sensitively and wittily tells a story of love, passion, and family tensions.
Dennis Wilton has taught martial arts for over twenty years. His books are ground-breaking investigations into the subject and include 'Battlefields of the Mind', which draws on its philosophy and psychology. Dennis also writes novels. He will talk about the differences between fact, fiction, and the writing of the two.

Leading SF authors at the Pavilion Theatre in Brighton Brian Aldiss OBE, Lauren Beukes and Jeff Noon chat and read on Sept 6th.

This is part of Brighton Digital Festival
a month-long celebration of all things digital bringing together the city’s vibrant arts and digital communities. From small-scale meet ups to big name conferences, from digital artists’ experimental ideas to fully mounted exhibitions, the Festival promises something for everybody and because most events are free, plenty of opportunities to discover something new. Hands on, participatory, exciting, challenging, wondrous, fascinating, the Brighton Digital Festival has it all and it uniquely reflects the spirit of the city.

The Digital Festival overlaps with Fantasycon by 1 day.
