Our first ever BristolCon Fringe Reading took place last night, and was very successful. There were fine performances from Myfanwy Rodman and Gareth L. Powell. Several other writers were in attendance, including Cavan Scott who wrote this very splendid review of the event. Dave Bradley was there too, so hopefully we’ll get a mention in SFX.
I don’t think I was very good, mainly because I was desperately tired, but I did manage to record the readings, and a brief listen this morning suggests that the background noise from the other bar isn’t too bad. We’ll be looking into getting a sound system for the next event, and more chairs.
I’ll be getting the podcasts sorted when I get back from Croatia. I note, for the benefit of fans of Ack-Ack Macaque, that Gareth read two chapters from the new book, Hive Monkey. That was its first ever public outing.
The September reading will be on Monday 23rd, and will feature Tim Maughan & Piotr Sweitlik.
