HumberSFF-the first. A brief review.

It happened. The Monk’s Walk provided the ideal cosy environment on a wet Bank Holiday Weekend for our two guest authors.

After a chance to say hello to a room full of new faces, Daniel Godfrey got things rolling 2Daniel_Godfrey27_8_16with an excellent extract from New Pompeii, a story that starts where most end: the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. It might well have been his first public reading, but Daniel was more than happy to field questions from the audience after, and sparked a number of interesting discussions between runs to the bar.

David Tallerman gave us a peek at a new, fun book coming out from Digital Fiction Publishing at the end of the year. It’s a return to the humour found in The Tales of Easie Damasco. Those who like Dungeons and Dragons might well want to keep an eye out for it. 20160827_173842

A massive thank you to our guests and everyone who made the journey. It’d be rude not to thank the BFS and the BSFA for helping make HumberSFF happen. Don’t forget the Hull SF meeting in September, we hope you’re all enjoying your book booty and we’ll see you again soon.
