Thanks to everyone who came down to Unsung Live 4 last night at The Star of Kings. Fresh off the back of the Nine Worlds convention, it was great to see so many people still up for spending their Tuesday night in a pub listening to speculative short fiction.
We’ve just returned from great weekend at the Nine Worlds convention! It was a wonderful few days spent meeting other editors, publishers, readers, as well as fans celebrating every aspect of geek culture that you can imagine. We were impressed by the costumes (especially No Face!); humbled by people’s kind comments; inspired by the talks and discussions; heartened by packed rooms of people engaging actively with writers; and quite hungover come Sunday morning.
Unsung Live #3
Wednesday 27th April, 7pm
126 York Way, London N1 OAX
After the success and all-round fun of Unsung Live #2, we're happy to announce our return to The Star of Kings for our third evening of storytelling for fans of speculative fiction. The event is FREE but space is limited, so make sure to RSVP on our Meetup page.
Hot on the heels of our Déjà Vu, Unsung Stories are proud to announce The Beauty has just been published. That's right, twins! (Non-identical) We've got the advances here in the office and they look really rather fine. She's slim, elegant and punches above her weight.
The Beauty is available in paperback with digital formats following later this week. You can get your paperback direct from our store, www.unsungstories.co.uk/store, or order yours in from your local independent bookshop, Foyles, Waterstones, Blackwells, and all the other wonderful retailers out there.
Pre-orders will be going out imminently and you can now go and don't forget to harass your local bookstore until they are compelled to order up our entire stock.
People are saying some very nice things about the book too, with more in that in coming weeks. In fact, on behalf of Aliya and the Unsung scutters, thank you to all those people. In years to come, remember you said it first.
As to whoever put the novella on the long list for the 2015 British Fantasy Society Awards? We salute you.
Here’s an idea to make school more fun, and the world a more considered place: let’s embrace the teaching potential of fiction. As a species we love stories in all forms, so much so that we go out of our way to consume them at every opportunity. So if we’re doing it anyway why not make the most of it?
