The programme for Alt.Fiction, the one day sf/f/h extravaganza in Derby in April has been published. It amounts to a seriously packed day of genre goodies, with so many authors crammed into a few hours and a few rooms that it makes you wonder how they find the space for anybody else. If you like your fiction speculative, it’s definitely the place to be on April 26th.
Me, I’ll be talking worldbuilding in the afternoon, and then I’m apparently launching a book. That’ll be Bloodheir, then. Means a little reading and signing, I guess, so hopefully the printing presses are gearing up even now.
What it also means is that if you’re at Alt.Fiction, you might get the chance to acquire a copy of Bloodheir a whole six weeks before it turns up in the shops. Bargain. UPDATE: No, Bloodheir won’t be available on the day. Too soon. Oh well.
Anyone else who wants one can also have a signed copy of Bloodheir, mind you. Transreal Fiction will take orders for signed (and optionally dated, dedicated, inscribed, whatever) hardbacks and post them off to you as soon as it’s published. As far as I know, the cost is just cover price plus whatever packing and postage costs are to your part of the world.
On a wholly unrelated subject, if you’ve got a couple of minutes to spare, turn your sound on and go try this awareness test. It’s not easy …
