Our schedule for Fantasycon 2014 is growing by stealth!
The Alchemy Press will, of course, have a table in the dealers room where you will be able to buy all our available titles. In addition to that we shall be flitting about the Con in a variety of guises!
On Friday 5th Peter Coleborn – (Alchemy Press Editor-in-Chief) will be on a panel at
4 pm pm titled ‘Rejectamentalist Manifesto’
Jenny Barber has a panel at 5,00pm with ‘When Fiction Goes Digital’
Both Peter, Mike and Jan will be taking part in the Joel Lane tribute at 6 pm
On Saturday Jan Edwards has a reading slot timed for 10.00 am. (NOT 6.40 as per fcon schedule!) No firm ideas as yet on what shall be read as yet, but most likely something from the upcoming supernatural collection Leinster Gardens and Other Subtleties.
Then at 2.00pm we shall have the magnificent Alchemy Press party launching no less than five new titles. For full details on titles go to The Alchemy Press.
