Winter Warmer Review

Our thanks to everyone who joined us for our first, successful Speculative Ficion Open Mic.

A unique open mic designed to bring a different side of the genre communities together. It was an enjoyable experience which we heard from writers who have completed novels or reading from work in progress.

The range on offer covered paranormal, fantasy, science fiction, the funny and the serious.  From novels and short pieces.

Science Fiction and Fantasy author, Shellie Horst started things by reading an extract from the science fiction anthology Distaff. She read from her short story My Little Mecha.

Linda Acaster, a multi-genre novelist and short-story writer chose to read from her horror thriller, The Paintings

Carol Ann Kerry, author of Paranormal and Urban Fantasy fiction read from her urban fantasy Of Blood and Shadows.

Sue Oke who previously joined us to discuss about her role at BSFA REVIEW and her experience through writing groups she read from a current work in progress, Everything to Play For.

Wayne Ross joined us to read from Estait, a hard science fiction novel in progress. We also heard an extract from You Lucky Customer, by Mark.

Steve Kerry ensured we all left smiling, by reading extracts from his collection Legends and Bad Dreams and Other Stories.

We are hoping to bring the audio versions of all the above readings in the near future.
