This Thursday, authors Nina Allan, Catriona Ward and Aliya Whiteley will be appearing at a special event at Waterstones in Exeter along with George Sandison, editor in chief at Unsung Stories, to discuss the inspiration of the region on their writing. On her blog post, Nina Allan also writes: " We will also be discussing war, climate change, the increasing importance of women in speculative fiction, and the rise of weird fiction generally in these unsettled times."
The event begins at 18.30 pm at Waterstones Exeter (High Street branch). Tickets are £3. They can be purchased direct from Waterstones, reserved online or bought on the door on the night. Please visit the Waterstones site for more details.
