Here are a few things happening the the Bristol/Bath area in May.
On Friday, May 5th China Miéville will be doing a Festival of Ideas talk at @Bristol. This is not about his SF, he’s doing a tour to promote October, his new book about the Russian Revolution. I’m teaching at Bristol University that day anyway so I’ll pop in and say hello.
That same evening, Robin Hobb will be at Toppings in Bath. Obviously I can’t be at both. You get to make a choice.
And finally, on Tuesday, May 30th Alan Lee will be at Toppings to promote a new, illustrated edition of Beren and Luthien. There’s a limited edition slipcase edition available at a whopping £75, but thankfully the ordinary hardcover appears to have the illustrations too.
