Writers will be reading from various pieces of work – in particular from:
Sussex Tales by Jan Edwards – From fanged ferret to bulls in lead masks; ancient hand grenades to exploding ginger beer; cricketing dogs to wassailing orchards – Sussex Tales weaves traditional country wines, recipes, folklore and Sussex dialect into these natural tales of living a farming childhood in the vanished world of 1950s and 60s rural life.
House of Shadows by Misha M Herwin – A story of love and grief and friendships. Supernatural and historical elements are inter woven with that sense of memory and how grief and loss affect what we remember and what we choose, subconsciously to forget. A haunting supernatural time-shift novel set in the rural outskirts of Bristol.
It was Never Worthwhile by Jem Shaw and Malcolm Harvard – a thought-provoking anthology of stories of World War 1. It Never Was Worthwhile avoids the well-worn path of horror and hopelessness to tread the varied ground of unexpected humour and startling juxtapositions of people.
