In February 2015, I interviewed the mighty Timebomb author Scott K Andrews at the British Science Fiction Association's monthly gathering. Ohhh, how I quizzed the man about his life, his career and his frankly astonishing collection of ancient Egyptian thigh bones. The whole affair looked very much like Chad Dixon's picture above, except the audience presumably experienced it in full colour.
On October 26, mere days before Halloween, the fiendish Mr Andrews will turn the tables on me for the BSFA, and interrogate me all about my life, career and frankly astonishing collection of ancient Egyptian shin bones. The event is completely free to attend - you do not have to be a BSFA member - and the night's schedule runs like this:
People gather at The Artillery Arms, 102 Bunhill Row, London EC1Y 8ND. These people can drink some booze, if they like, to steel themselves for what is to come.
Scott starts grilling me in the upstairs room of the pub. There is no mercy. A reading from Jack Sparks may also be involved.
Q&A with the audience.
Book raffle, in which you can "win a selection of SF novels for just £1 for 5 tickets", according to the BSFA. I'll be happy to sign copies of my novel The Last Days Of Jack Sparks too, if you like. I may also bring a few copies along to sell if the interest is there (tweet me!)
All in all, I can't think of a better way to welcome the infernal majesty of Halloween 2016 into our lives, can you? Well, can you? Hmmm? I doubt you can, so diarise it.
See you there! Here's the BSFA's event page, just in case you think I've made the whole blessed thing up.
And if you can't make the event in person, check out Chad Dixon's Twitter feed - he'll hopefully be live-streaming the whole affair!
I'm a writer of stuff, including Doctor Who, Friday The 13th and Beast In The Basement. My latest fiction release is the Orbit Books novel The Last Days Of Jack Sparks, now in movie development at Ron Howard's Imagine Entertainment.
