I’m very excited to have been passed details to share for the launch of this science fiction and fantasy anthology featuring kick ass women not only here in Brizzle but at just about the best possible venue for a book launch in this genre, and the building, which dating back to 1606 is the oldest in Bristol, and was my second home between the ages of 18-28!
Details are as follows… (Disclosure: I have copied from the press release to ensure accuracy!)
Join Grimbold Books for the launch of the brand new anthology Fight Like A Girl, which will be a social afternoon of swordplay and display, discussions on the role of women in SF&F (both as characters and authors), excerpts from the book, and a buffet to munch. Whether you’re a budding writer, established genre fan, there will be something for everyone!
