York Open Night: Saturday 9th May 2015

May 9, 2015 @ 5:00 pm - 11:00 pm

In association with the British Science Fiction Association (BSFA), we are pleased to announce we have another exciting York Pubmeet event, following the two previous events last summer and autumn. This one takes place in May at the Brigantes Bar, Micklegate, just 5 mins round the corner from York train station.

We have another selection of super guests and books to give away and all of it is totally FREE!

Guest Authors: K.T. Davies and Mark Morris. Both will be reading from their own work and fielding questions about their careers and writing in general.

Plus, Special Guest: Lee Harris, Senior Editor, Tor.com (and current Chair of FantasyCon as well as Treasurer and former Chair of the BFS) is running a bonus ‘Ask the Editor’ spot for all your editorial queries and advice.

There’ll be another fabulous FREE raffle offering all attendees the chance to grab a couple of new books and book bundles to take home (incl. signed copies of books by both our guests) and plenty of good conversation and drinks to enjoy. Should be another great night, full to bursting with inspiration, so save the date now!

Venue: Brigantes Bar & Brasserie, 114 Micklegate, York YO1 6JX.

About K.T. Davies (in her own words): I was born in the wilds of Yorkshire or ‘the North’ for all you southern types/those with a ‘thing’ for Game of Thrones. I somehow blagged a 1st in literature and have worked variously as an actor, a scaffolder, a teacher, and until fairly recently, a theatrical prop maker. I have a lifetime membership of Club Nerd and play all manner of computer/console game as well as the unplugged varieties which I sometimes review for SFcrowsnest. I also review books n’ stuff. As if that wasn’t enough to prove I’ve earned my platinum geek credit card, I practice medieval martial arts (occasionally on horseback), I LARP, read comics and wargame. Twitter: @KTScribbles

About Mark Morris: His first novel, Toady, was published in 1989 (re-titled The Horror Club, and its text shortened by one-third for the US market) and several further books followed: Stitch, The Immaculate, The Secret of Anatomy, Mr Bad Face, Longbarrow, Genesis andNowhere Near an Angel. Before Toady, he had written a novel called The Winter Tree, which was rejected by publishers, but allowed him to gain him some familiarity with them. He has also published two volumes of short stories, Close to the Bone and Voyages into Darkness (with Stephen Laws) and a novel as “J.M. Morris”: Fiddleback (which was renamed The Lonely Places and had a slightly longer epilogue for the US market. A further collection of short fiction, Separate Skins, was due for release from British small press publisher Tanjen, but the publisher went out of business around that time and the book remains unpublished. A fan of Doctor Who since being terrified by the show as a child, Morris has so far written four books for the BBC, as well as one of the Doctor Who spinoff Torchwood: The Body Snatchers for BBC Books’ Eighth Doctor Adventures range, and the novel Deep Blue for their Past Doctors Adventures range, Forever Autumn and Ghosts of India as part of the New Series Adventures range, with the Torchwood novel Bay of the Dead being released on 29 May 2009. He has also written Doctor Who-related audio plays for Big Finish Productions. He is currently published by the independent publisher PS Publishing.
