Dates For The Diary

Two UK dates for the diary. Firstly, I’ll be at Derby this Saturday (6th November 1:00pm – 4:00pm) at QUAD for the Other Worlds event (presented by Tor UK and Alt.Fiction). Tickets £8.00 (£6.00 Concessions)

Other Worlds offers a mixture of panel discussions, giveaways and signings and is an ideal event for both readers and writers of science-fiction and fantasy. Authors appearing include the UK’s best-selling SF author PETER F HAMILTON, Shadows of the Apt writer ADRIAN TCHAIKOVSKY, rising fantasy star MARK CHARAN NEWTON and author of the Recursion trilogy TONY BALLANTYNE.

I’ll also be doing a fantasy writing workshop beforehand from 11.00-12.00. More details on that here.

And in March next year I’ll be attending a new one-day event in Leeds called ConJour, also in association with Tor UK. Authors so far confirmed are Mike Carey, Kate Griffin, Justina Robson, and Adrian Tchaikovsky.

We believe ConJour it is the first Science Fiction and Fantasy event to be based in Leeds. It is a one day event taking place on Saturday March 12th 2011 and will run from approximately 9am to 5.30pm. The event is taking place at the Leeds Park Plaza Hotel and is being sponsored by Tor UK.

A number of fantastic authors will be attending ConJour and taking parts in panels, talks, Q and A sessions and signing sessions throughout the day. A schedule of the day will be posted on this website and emailed to all attendees closer to date. A copy will also be given to all attendees in the programme.

Hadn’t heard of ConJour, thanks for flagging it up Mark. I think I might have to pop along…

If I can get some ID, that is.

Hi Dwagginz,

I’m one of the con organisers. All we really need is something to prove your identity, but as long as you have the ticket confirmation and something with your name on in your wallet that matches, that will be fine.


Hi Steve,
Ah, so a bank card or something’d be fine? That’s alright then 🙂 Mind you, I do need to look into ID.
Thanks, and sorry for derailing the post, Mark.

I need ID?! Don’t people know who I am?!
Ah wait – sorry, that’s your line, isn’t it, Mark? 🙂
Team Tor will, obviously, be at both events so please do feel free to come and talk to us about books, authors, publishing etc. Contrary to popular opinion – editors don’t bite.
