BristolCon Fringe: June 2017 - Kate Coe

June 26th, 2017 · Comments

Our first reader for June was Kate Coe who runs the Writing & Coe website. She read extracts from two very different stories.

Our apologies for somewhat muddy sound. This was partly because it was very hot and we needed to keep the air conditioning on, and partly because of a technical mishap which caused us to have to record on a phone.

June 2nd, 2017 · Comments

Our headline guest for May was Emma Newman. She read the first chapter of her novel, After Atlas, which is a finalist for the Arthur C. Clarke Award. This introduces us to the main character in the novel, Carlos Moreno. He is a detective, but also the son one of the passengers on the Atlas, the colony ship from Planetfall. This story takes place many years after the Atlas left Earth.

When introducing Emma, Cheryl Morgan mentions some top secret news that she can't divulge at the time. We can now reveal that Emma will be the Guest of Honour at Åcon 9 in Flnland next year.

BristolCon Fringe: March 2017 - Paul Cornell

May 17th, 2017 · Comments

Our headline guest for March was Paul Cornell, who should need no introduction. Paul treated us to a preview of his latest novel, Chalk (due for publication the following day). He read two excerpts, one of which introduces us to the landscape of the novel, and the other featuring an innovate form of divination based on pop singles. The book is set in the 1980s and Pauls' publishers, Tor, have put together a great YouTube playlist to go with the book.
