BristolCon Fringe: January 2016 - Q&A

May 9th, 2016 · Comments

Finally our readers for January were asked to explain themselves, which was almost certainly a bad idea because you should never try to explain comedy. Cheryl tried hard to make project management sound amusing and failed dismally. Nick explained ASBOs for the benefit of foreign readers. Will explained more about the world of his book. We narrowly avoid mention of fluffy cushions.

BristolCon Fringe: January 2016 - Will Loram

May 9th, 2016 · Comments

Fortunately Will did finally make it to the event. His reading is from a novel in which... well, maybe it is best to let him explain that. But there are pirates, OK? And dragons. And lots of bureaucracy, because there's nothing that the British like more than making fun of bureaucrats.

BristolCon Fringe: January 2016 - Nick Walters

May 9th, 2016 · Comments

The January Fringe was something of a comedy special. As Will Loram had been eaten by aliens, or by the Welsh, or by Bristol's traffic, Nick Walters kindly agreed to take the mic first. Nick had arrived hotfoot from a training course on project management, which is perhaps ideal preparation for reading from a novel in which the Earth is menaced by alien bureaucrats. Fortunately a certain Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart will arrive to save the day, though not in the extract that Nick reads.
