This Saturday 17th November there will be not one, but four Angry Robot Authors in Sheffield. As part of their Readers Events, Sheffield Central Library are hosting a Science Fiction and Fantasy Readers Day with four authors, each with a different style of fantasy:
- David Tallerman – “Best known for an eclectic variety of short stories, Tallerman debuts with a breezy novel of a man with his eye on the prize … Tallerman’s charming, devil-may-care hero has plenty of swashbuckling roguishness to carry him through the planned sequels.” – Publishers Weekly
- Gav Thorpe – “The Crown of the Blood should really have a warning sticker on the front (Angry Robots take note) it’s one of those books that are almost impossible to put down, so much so that you find yourself unconsciously continuing to (try to) read after geeting up to make a brew / go to work / go to bed (delete as applicable and don’t try this at home kids). The novel also stands out with a very strong opening scene and excellent end, with a genuinely unexpected twist.” – SFBook.com
- Anne Lyle – “Anne Lyle’s Alchemist of Souls teems with intrigue and magic worthy of the Bard himself, all set against the backdrop of Elizabethan London. The attention to historical detail brings the time and place alive and peoples it with characters I could instantly empathize with. An outstanding debut!” Lynn Flewelling
And you get me into the bargain, talking about The Courts of the Feyre and writing in general. I will also be around to sign copies of the books, including Strangeness and Charm – all supported with free cake from The Harland Cafe and with books on sale from The Space Centre.
NOTE – TICKETS ARE FREE, BUT YOU HAVE TO BOOK IN ADVANCE
If that wasn’t enough to tempt you,the Angry Robot editorial team will be there, talking about publishing, what it takes to be an Angry Robot Author and how to get that big break. The event starts at 1pm at Sheffield Central Library, but remember to get those tickets in advance.
Hope to see you there
