We’re really excited to be holding our next FREE event at Hull Central Library from 1pm February 25th. Check out their Science Fiction and Fantasy offerings, along side their digital library they have an impressively up to date collection with plenty of the classics too.
Three authors will be our guests, each of whom have award-worthy reputations.
Jim Hawkins’ screenplay was nominated for a BAFTA, but he will be reading from his latest collection Fragments of Tomorrow. Jim’s prose work has regularly appeared in “The Best Of ” styled anthologies and his short stories can regularly be found in Interzone, one of the UK’s leading genre magazines. Jim inspired new writing for both screen and novel through the Hull University’s Creative Writing Degree. You can find more aboutJim Hawkins on his author page
Lee Harrison’s debut fantasy novel, The Bastard Wonderland, was recently featured on the Not the Booker Prize Longlist, a real coup for a Hull-based genre author. Lee is currently working with First Story promoting literacy within schools in the area. Discover more about him here: http://www.thebastardwonderland.com/
Sheffield based author Steven Poore’s novel, Heir to the North, was shortlisted for the British Fantasy Award, winning many over with his writing style. The High King’s Vengeance is the second in the Malessar’s Curse series. Several of Steven Poore’s short stories have been published by the award winning Fox Spirit Books and most recently with Woodbridge Press.
