Festivals in May

Hi all,

Just a quickie to let you know about some festivals coming up.

The Write Fantastic
8th May, Oxford

As you've already heard, Juliet McKenna, author of the Chronicles of the Lescari Revolution (here's the first book, Irons in the Fire, with David Palumbo's dramatic "Man in front of a flag" cover) and Ian Whates, author of The Noise Within (here's Dominic Harman's fine "Exploding spaceship" cover) are helping stage The Write Fantastic's fifth anniversary event on the 8th May at the Jacqueline du Pre building in St. Hilda's College, Oxford University. There are going to be four pretty interesting-sounding panels, a book release, and an opportunity to pick up signed copies of both Irons and Noise.

(And a certain pair of charming, slyly witty, strangely alluring editors will be in attendance to boot. Look out for Jenni and me!)

The Lincoln Book Festival
12th - 16th May, Lincoln

Ian's also going to be at the Lincoln Book Festival the following weekend. This is a fairly big festival, which has played host to Benjamin Zephaniah, Melvyn Bragg and Iain Banks in the past, and Ian will be appearing on a panel along with horror novelist Adam Nevill and fantasy author Stephen Deas. Looks like a good weekend, and Lincoln's a beautiful place to visit, so you can make a holiday of it!
