Unsung Live 7

As winter hightailed it out of the city, and lighter evenings started their slow creep into the year, Unsung Stories once again cracked out the microphone and teased more authors out of their sanctuaries... 

Our first reader was Rose Biggin, back for more after reading 'A Game Proposition' at Live #4. This time it was noir-ception, with her story about a man with a gun in his hand coming in to the room, just a couple of times...

Next up was Jamie Sawyer, author of The Lazarus War series, with his story of true love and mechanised infantry. Full of the spirit of Haldeman, it was love and the life before, against the echoes of war.

EJ Swift, author of the Osiris Project trilogy, brought us an elegaic tale of fox spirits and a landscape changed by a warming planet inspired by the winner of the 2015 Wildlife Photographer of the Year.

Last up was Courttia Newland, award winning author of The Scholar and The World According to Cane, bringing it much closer to home with his near-future dystopia of immigration control and children hinted in the streets.

If you want to know more about our Live events, and get updates on authors and RSVPs, you can join our Meetup group. The next date will be 4th April, with readers including Claire North (The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August, Touch, The Sudden Appearance of Hope) and Nick Wood (the BSFA shortlisted Azanian Bridges).
