BristolCon Fringe: November 2015 - Q&A

January 19th, 2016 · Comments

Finally for November our two readers were put to the question by Cheryl Morgan. We discussed the differing natures of horror short fiction and epic fantasy. Tom talked about the growing interest in writing fiction, and Lucy told us about a blog post she had been advised not to publish in case it offended some men. We congratulated Jo Hall on winning an award for killing lots of people in her stories.

BristolCon Fringe: November 2015 - Lucy Hounsom

January 19th, 2016 · Comments

Our second reader for November was Lucy Housom. We were expecting Lucy to read from her novel, Starborn, but instead she treated us to an exclusive preview of the sequel, which is still being written. There are no spiders in this reading, though there is quite a lot of sand.

BristolCon Fringe: November 2015 - Tom Parker

January 19th, 2016 · Comments

Stephanie Burgis was unable to make the November event due to having been kidnapped by publishers armed with cake. However, Tom Parker bravely offered to step up and take her place. Tom read two stories from his forthcoming horror collection. Please be warned that if you are nervous about spiders you probably do not want to listen to this one.

Finally we get to the part of the evening that involves live torture. Cheryl Morgan puts both readers to the question, and the audience is asked to think of things to say. Jo reveals her inner darkness, and Jonathan describes how Carter & Lovecraft came to be written.

BristolCon Fringe: October 2015 - Jonathan L. Howard

January 1st, 2016 · Comments

Continuing our Halloween theme, Jonathan L. Howard launches his latest novel, Carter & Lovecraft. There are no tentacled horrors from beyond the stars in the excerpt that he reads (you'll need to buy the book for them). However, there is a particularly nasty serial killer. The cops get very sweary.

BristolCon Fringe: October 2015 - Joanne Hall

January 1st, 2016 · Comments

This is the first of our Halloween special deeply creepy readings from October. Jo Hall is more generally known for being the Queen of Grimdark, but there is no mass slaughter in this excerpt from her latest novel, Spark & Carousel. Instead there's something cold, calculated and ultimately horrible.
