Brave New Worlds: How to World-Build in Fantastical Fiction

Join authors Alastair Reynolds (REVENGER), Aliette de Bodard (THE HOUSE OF BINDING THORNS), EDWARD COX (THE RELIC GUILD SERIES), and Tom Toner (THE PROMISE OF THE CHILD) as they discuss what the ins and outs of writing in imagined places.

Panellists: Alastair Reynolds, Tom Toner, Edward Cox , Aliette de Bodard, Ian McDonald
Moderator: Mark Stay
Panel Duration: 1hr & 15mins
Exact Time: 1:30pm – 2:45pm
Day: Friday 26th of May
Lower Platinum Suite
Author signing (not clear if this is during the time slot or shortly thereafter, but I’ll be around!)

Women in Fantasy: Zen Cho, Vic James and Aliette de Bodard in conversation

- 0 comments - Events

Come hang out with Zen Cho (author of Sorcerer to the Crown), Vic James (author of Gilded Cage)  in Waterstone’s Picadilly! We’ll talk women in fantasy, Regency & 19th Century, and quite possibly food!

You can get tickets here, or on the day: they’re £8 but redeemable against the purchase of one of our books–and The House of Binding Thorns will just have come out (just saying *grin*)

Read for Pixels Google Hangouts

- 0 comments - Events - Events

I’ll be taking part in Read for Pixels’ Google Hangout on Sunday March 19th, 4pm Paris Time, to raise money for The Pixel Project’s fundraising campaign to fight violence against women. I’ll be reading from my forthcoming The House of Binding Thorns: ruined and decadent Paris, magical intrigues, dragons in human shape, and kissing and stabbing (not necessarily in that order :p), and taking questions about my writing.

More info here, and access details to the livestream channel here.

I’m also offering a Parisian Bundle for the fundraiser, which will let you curl up with The House of Shattered Wings, good food, and a print of gorgeous artwork by Likhain, featuring Françoise and Berith, two characters from The House of Binding Thorns (a Fallen and her mortal lover).
