5th York Pubmeet (2016) 30th January

Brigantes Bar & Brasserie – 114 Micklegate York, North York YO1 6JX GB
As always, we have another two guest readers and a selection of books to give away, and all of it is totally FREE!

It is also open to the public.

In association with the British Science Fiction Association (BSFA) and British Fantasy Society (BFS) we are pleased to announce another open pubmeet event for the Yorkshire region. Our guest authors for the evening, reading from their own work and fielding questions about their careers and writing in general, are Marc Turner (author of The Chronicles of the Exile fantasy series) and Alison Littlewood (author of countless short storiesand a number of shortlisted novels).

You can find out more about Alison Littlewood here.


And more about Marc Turner here.


Once again we’ll have a fabulous FREE raffle offering all attendees the chance to win a couple of new and old books (and book bundles) as well as signed copies of works from both guest authors, as well as plenty of opportunity to grab some quality food, drink and conversation — well, okay, we’re depending on you for some of the latter, but hey, the rest sounds good, doesn’t it? šŸ˜‰

Do join us if you can, and if you haven’t been before, I assure you we are always (a) very welcoming, (b) very approachable, and (c) very pleased to have you along…

For those who enjoy a bite to eat, the Brigantes also has a great food menu.

Should be another great night, full to bursting with inspiration, but we do need your support and attendance, so please plan ahead!

About Donna Scott

Chair of the BSFA since June 2013. Prior to this I was Awards Administrator, taking over that role from Claire Briarley in 2008. I am officially Donna Bond since getting married in May 2013, but continue to write and perform under my previous name, Donna Scott. My short fiction stories have been published in various anthologies and magazines, and I was winner of the inaugural Short Cuts at the MAC in 2005. As a comedian, I have performed all over the UK. Comedy has also given me the opportunity to perform alongside big names like Sarah Millican and Jasper Carrott! As a poet, I've also performed all over the place, including lots of science fiction conventions, and sometimes my poetry and comedy get kind of mixed up. I was the first official Bard of Northampton, it's true. I've got a tankard that says so... I love being a part of the BSFA - I've always been a devourer of books and being part of this association has enabled me to explore some great science fiction classics - and classics of the future, that I might otherwise have not heard about. I've met some lovely people with an enthusiasm for the genre, made firm friends, and got to meet some of my favourite writers, too! As a writer, I also have to say that FOCUS is the best magazine for writers I've ever come across - and as a member I get that for free. Who wouldn't want to be a part of this?
