BristolCon Fringe: December 2015 - Q&A

February 24th, 2016

As is traditional, host Cheryl Morgan and the audience put our two readers to the question. We were keen to know which member of the Cabinet is so demonic as to have inspired Simon's story. Sarah confessed her love for Russian and Finnish classic music. There were suggestions that Christmas might be just around the corner.

BristolCon Fringe: December 2015 - Sarah Ash

February 24th, 2016

Our second reader for December was Sarah Ash, who read us an extract from her 2003 novel, Lord of Snow and Shadows. The book was far more wintery than Bristol.

BristolCon Fringe: November 2015 - Q&A

January 19th, 2016

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

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

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.

BristolCon Fringe: October 2015 - Jonathan L. Howard

January 1st, 2016

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.
