It's that time of the year again, where George and Gary reduce a year's reading into just 5 highlights. May contain some cheating about how we count to 5.
Thanks to everyone who came down to the sixth instalment of Unsung Live last night at The Star of Kings for another night showcasing some of the best in contemporary speculative short fiction.

Thanks to everyone who came down to the fifth instalment of Unsung Live last night at The Star of Kings for another night showcasing some of the best in contemporary speculative short fiction.
What do publishers read when summer is drawing to a close, and the evenings grow short? Inspirational essays by migrants, tales of golems and memory loss, illuminated manuscripts and the bleak UK crime stories, of course!
Gary and George share what they've been reading this month, including a first visit to Bas Lag, Chris Packham, Nina Allan, and abusrdist anti-journalism.
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.
