BristolCon Fringe: November 2016 - Jessica Rydill

April 6th, 2017

Our second reader for November was Jessica Rydill. Her Shamanworld series was part-released by Orbit several years ago, but it fell victim to the all too regular "you only get one chance to be the next JK Rowling" syndrome. Thankfully Kristell Ink has picked up the entire series so fans of the early books will get to find out what happens at the end. In the meantime here's Jessica with a reading from the first book, Children of the Shaman.

BristolCon Fringe: August 2016 - Jo Lindsay Walton

March 21st, 2017

Our first reader for August was Jo Lindsay Walton. He treated us to a tale of time travel and that great conundrum of choronauts, the killing of Baby Hitler. Our heroes are a bunch of characters from what sounds like a Silicon Valley start-up. Or perhaps Seattle, because there is Starbucks.

BristolCon Fringe: June 2016 - Justin Newland

September 18th, 2016

Our second reader for June was Justin Newland, better known as "the man who asks questions" from our Q&A sessions. Justin read a short story set during the building of Hadrian's Wall, and the opening chapter of his novel, The Genes of Isis.

Stephanie was able to stay for the reading but had to leave during Justin's Q&A session. We had a short break while she left, but when we came back no one had any new questions so we just did announcements, which have been tacked on to this recording.
