The date of the launch party for Kristell Ink’s new anthology Fight Like A Girl has been announced: The launch will take place at The Hatchet Inn, Frogmore Street, Bristol (one of only two surviving medieval inns in the city centre) on Saturday April 2nd from 1pm-5.30pm.
This is my 3rd collaborative anthology project with the lovely Joanne Hall, one I wasn’t initially supposed to be working on but due to the original editor being unable to continue, I was drafted in. Whilst it’s a shame that she couldn’t do it, I feel very fortunate to have been involved in this book, which is, well, arse-kickin’ good.
The launch should be a cracker, too. There’ll be swordplay from contributing author Fran Terminiello and friends, readings from the anthology and discussion of the role of women in SF&F. There will also be a buffet to munch. You can see Fran’s skills in action in this video of an impromptu display in the bar at FantasyCon in 2014. Also showing off her moves in the video is Juliet McKenna, another of our contributors, who will be at the launch and could well be persuaded to throw someone to the floor with her little finger; always a treat.
Copies of ‘Fight Like A Girl’ will be available to buy on the day. RRP £9.99
Tickets are available from eventbrite – https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/fight-like-a-girl-flag-launch-event-tickets-20658444965
The entry price of £5 per head is entirely to cover the cost of the buffet. The extra 95p is a fee charged by eventbrite to cover their administration costs. So if you want to join in with the buffet, please buy a ticket so we know how many people want feeding!
