This is a reminder that on Friday I will be hosting a very special event at Waterstones Bristol. It is titled Murder Most Magical, and it will feature three very fine writers of fantastical mysteries: Ben Aaronovitch, Paul Cornell and Jasper Fforde. It will be the first place in the country that you can get your hands on Paul’s new novel, The Severed Streets.
Doors open at 7:00pm at Waterstones in The Galleries. The store tells me that they are expecting a big turnout, so we won’t start until around 7:30pm to give everyone time to get seated. Please don’t assume this means you can arrive at 7:45pm. We do need to get the authors out of there and fed. There may also be restrictions on the number of books each author will sign. Tickets are £3 and are only available from the store, but if you ask nicely someone in Bristol will pop in and buy some for you.
Talking of Paul, I saw him tweeting yesterday that he and Caroline had been in Bristol because Caroline had a job interview for a vicarship in the city. Are we excited? You bet!
