Join us for the first Unsung Live of 2017! We return to The Star of Kings for our seventh evening of storytelling for fans of the best in contemporary speculative fiction.
Don't miss the chance to join Oliver Langmead in launching his new brilliant second novel at Waterstones Argyle Street, Glasgow! Metronome is a literary horror-fantasy like nothing else you've read, set in an Edinburgh care home and in a uniquely nightmarish dream landscape.
