Understandable that after taking on FantasyCon at short notice other things might suffer. I'm still quite interested in setting something up in Birmingham if you want to get back to me on that. No worries if not.

The July event is now confirmed:

Friday 7th July, 7pm – late, at the Counting House, 50 Cornhill, London

The Counting House is a lovely venue and serves a range of beers and ale (as well as all the other alcohol you would expect!) and has a great food menu.  We have a private, accessible room which gives us  space to chat and meet others.  Everyone is welcome, it is entirely free and you don’t need to be a member of the BFS to come along.

Any guests coming along on the 7th of July? Or is it drinks only?

IanH - apologies for not getting back to you, lovely to see you at the pub. 

I realise I had posted the Xmas Social as Friday 7th December...  it is of course the 8th!  I have amended this to save confusion. 

It was also suggested that the October Social clashed with Octocon in Dublin, but I have checked the dates and it does not! Octocon is the 6th - 8th and the BFS social is the 13th. 

Would potential attendees prefer a Guest/interview/reading or would they prefer just to meet and chat?  Let me know what you think and I will try and ensure it is arranged to suit the majority. 

Thanks
Karen

Is there any update on the BFS Social this Friday? (Is it still scheduled? What sort of event will it be?) I'll try to be there, so long as non-member friends are welcome…

If you are in the London area, we hope you are joining us for the Xmas Social, it's a great time to meet up with wonderful people and celebrate the season.  Everyone is welcome, you don't need to be a BFS member.

This year we are in the Vintry pub, which serve a great selection of food and drink and have reserved us the conservatory for our meet up.

Eibonvale Press will be launching its new chapbook line and Brendan Connell’s unique and unclassifiable collection Pleasant Tales.  Filled with hints of horror and the weird, these stories also have a pop art glow to them and a deep sense of the strangeness of the mundane world. The first volume of the chapbooks will be Kristine Ong Muslim’s collection of sci-fi and horror miniatures The Drone Outside.

Snuggly Books will have a few new titles available, including a launch of The Emerald Princess by Félicien Champsaur and translated by Brian Stableford. An engagingly bizarre fantasy from 1928, full of lurid symbolism and harking back to the stylistic extravagances of the Decadent Movement, the title story is combined with five others, all presented in English for the first time.

The details:

Friday 8th December, 7pm

The Vintry

119 - 121 Cannon Street,

EC4N 5AX
