Humber SFF is a free to attend social event for those interested in the Science Fiction and Fantasy genres. With Hull celebrating City of Culture, we’re taking the SFF Culture to town, with three authors reading from their work. It takes place on Saturday February 25th in Hull Central Library’s James Reckitt Reading Room from 1pm and will feature three award-worthy Science Fiction and Fantasy authors. Guests will be welcome to join us for drinks after.
· Jim Hawkins’ screenplay was nominated for a BAFTA, but he will be reading from his latest collection Fragments of Tomorrow. Jim’s prose work has regularly appeared in “The Best Of ” styled anthologies and his short stories can regularly be found in Interzone, one of the UK’s leading genre magazines. Jim inspired new writing for both screen and novel through the Hull University’s Creative Writing Degree.
· Lee Harrison’s latest fantasy novel, The Bastard Wonderland, was recently featured on the Not the Booker Prize Longlist, a real coup for a Hull-based author. Lee is currently working with First Story promoting literacy within schools in the area.
· Sheffield based author Steven Poore’s novel, Heir to the North, was shortlisted for the British Fantasy Award, winning many over with his writing style, and perhaps the battle cry of “The North Will Rise Again.” Several of Steven Poore’s short stories have been published by the award winning Fox Spirit Books.
