Nine Worlds is go!

We’re heading to Nine Worlds this weekend, and very excited about it we are too.

Along with with loads of our authors appearing at the con (more of that shortly), we’re also have a party on Friday night, which will feature BOOKS, BOOZE and, quite possibly, KAZOOS, all of which will be free for you to take/consume/blow into as you see fit.

We’d love you to join us in room Royal B at 9:45pm, Friday 6 August. We’ll be announcing a brand new author, and you’ll get the opportunity to meet authors including Dave Hutchinson, Gareth L Powell and Guy Haley. Free books, a bit of booze and author-talk – what’s not to love?

We’ve also got authors appearing on various panels and talks all over the convention, so check out the timetable below and join us for what promises to be a geektastic weekend.

Don’t forget to visit the official Nine Worlds website for details and the full schedule, and follow the con on Twitter to keep up to date with all info.
