Hi. We are the Sheffield Fantasy & Science Fiction Social Club. It’s nice to meet you.
Earlier this year we went to the York Pubmeet – held, obviously, in a pub in York – inspired by London’s own Super Relaxed Fantasy Club. Authors David Tallerman and Janine Ashbless wowed a packed room with readings of their work, the BSFA’s Alex Bardy gave away lots of books, and everybody had a damned good time with drinks and a lot of constructive conversation.
And we thought: why isn’t there anything like this in Sheffield?
So now there is.
On 24th January 2015, at 4pm, you can join us upstairs at Eten on York Street in Sheffield for the very first SFSF Social. Our guests will be the following wonderfully talented authors and swordfighters:
- Jo Thomas, author of 25 Ways to Kill a Werewolf, available now from Fox Spirit Books.
- Adrian Tchaikovsky, author of the Shadows of the Apt series, available from Tor UK.
As well as readings, there will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions, and to win some goodies – and, of course, to have a good old chinwag, in relaxed surroundings, about anything SFnal.
We’ll have more details over the course of the coming weeks, but if you need to get in touch sooner, pop over to the Contact page, or ping us on Twitter – @SFSFSocial.
You can also find SFSF Social on Eventbrite – it’s a good way for us to gauge how many people we’ll need to cater for, so please do register (free!) if you will be popping down!
