« on: July 28, 2018, 11:02:29 AM »
Oct 27 2018 Tickets currently £25

They don't appear to understand web security but at least the website is logical this year and you can find the info you need.
I was without sleep for 30 odd hours last year but it was a good meet up of authors and  fans and overall was a good convention.

Having a growing collection (purely to have an excuse not to lend them) of signed books I found this quite interesting.

Now I like to see SPFBO writers doing well and found Kings of the Wyld a fun and lighthearted change from my usually grim-dark reading so book two soonish.

5
OK possible Amazon placeholder date, but as its published by 47 North probably not.
Limited Wish and Dispel illusion to follow. All three books to be published in 2019.

And yes I am really looking forward to this series (which was a single book last time Mark was talking about it)

6
The Gods of Light are Falling

The court of Broken Knives is excellent  really looking forward to its sequel.

Without looking to start any controversy or raise a reoccurring argument from the dead I found this interesting but very wrong. The press publishes about 12 books a year and is obviously in a position to do this where bigger publishers would hurt themselves by doing so. I believe in equality and dislike discrimination, positive discrimination is as dangerous as negative as it opens the argument that (in this case) they only got published because...

100 years of women over 30 getting the vote celebrated by only publishing female authors seems a regressive and unconnected step to me. Ability is not mentioned one in the article a need for gender balance is the theme and the stats given relate to what is in effect competition. The booker and costa awards comities could have been given a voice in the article if any form of balance was sought.
