August 15th, 2016 · Comments

There was no shortage of things to talk about with Martyn and Paul.

From Martyn we here the Tania Carver origin story, his time as a television actor, and his entirely ridiculous book, Great Lost Albums.

Paul talks about the Shadow Police, his episode of Elementary, and his latest comics project, This Damned Band.

BristolCon Fringe: May 2016 - Paul Cornell

August 15th, 2016 · Comments

There's no shortage of fantastical content in the second reading of the evening. The third book in Paul Cornell's Shadow Police series is called Who Killed Sherlock Holmes. In the scene that Paul reads our heroes discover the ghost of the great detective, apparently recently deceased having been stabbed with a magical knife. Can ghosts be killed? If so, who was responsible, and why?

BristolCon Fringe: May 2016 - Martyn Waites

August 15th, 2016 · Comments

The May Fringe event was a crime fiction special, in honour of Crimefest, our local crime fiction convention. Both readers had a connection to speculative fiction, but we began with someone who writes entirely non-fantastical crime novels. Martyn Waites has a spectacular writing career under his own name, but he also writes as Tania Carver. It is one of her books that he chose to read from.

If you want to know the story as to how Martyn came to write as Tania, it is all explained during the Q&A.
