For anyone wanting to down a few jars or five to get over the shock of the UK General Election results, or the conviction that they’re now living in fantasyland, the British Fantasy Society (BFS) and British Science Fiction Association (BSFA) have organized their third York Pubmeet, for fans and aficionados of fantasy and science fiction. This will take place on Saturday, May 9th, from 5pm onwards, at the Brigantes Bar & Brasserie at 114 Micklegate in York.

According to the event details, “our guest authors for the evening, reading from their own work and fielding questions about their careers and writing in general, are Mark Morris and K.T. Davies, and we’ll also have Lee Harris running a bonus ‘Ask the Editor’ spot for all your editorial queries and advice. There’ll be another fabulous FREE raffle offering all attendees the chance to grab a couple of new books and book bundles to take home (incl. signed copies of books by both our guests) and plenty of good conversation and drinks to enjoy.”

The BFS and BSFA describe these events as “a new type of evening/pubmeet event that focuses purely on books. Author readings tend to be quite short followed by a Q&A and there is of course, food, drink and booze, too (not included!).” So should be worth going along to, and it’s absolutely free. Enjoy – but fantasize and speculate responsibly …
