January 2015 – August 2017
AutismCon is an exciting new day-long convention organised by and for people with autism, with talks, workshops and performances. It’s an amazing celebration of autism, where special interests are encouraged, communication comes in all forms, and the skills and talents of people with autism are clear for everyone to see. Many people with autism are fans of speculative fiction, so among the many events will be a discussion panel about science fiction and fantasy. One of our authors, Peter R. Ellis, will be on the panel. If you’re going to the convention look out for Peter.
This year’s Nine Worlds Geekfest (12th-14th August) will, for the first time, include an Expo – which has been dubbed the Geekfayre. We will be there on a table with our books. More details to follow as soon as we know them.
We’re also very proud to be an official sponsor of Nine Worlds 2016.
So, if you’re going to Nine Worlds anyway, come into the Geekfayre, say hello, have a browse and buy a book or two
We look forward to seeing you there.
We will be back at Nine Worlds Geekfest again this year (4-6th August). The vendors will be inside the convention, not in a separate Expo like last year, so we should be easy to find. Come and say hello, have a browse, buy some books. We will have some new books that will be on sale for the first time at Nine Worlds, and a couple that we will be launching there (on Saturday); we expect to be joined by some of our authors too – more details closer to the day. Hope to see you there too.
Oh, and did we mention that we’re Gold Sponsor for Nine Worlds this year?
John will be reading from his retrospective anthology of short stories Don’t Look Back.
Then Peter R. Ellis (whose latest book Cold Fire, a September Weekes novel, will be out in eBook on 4th August) will interview them both. There should be time for a few questions from the audience too! There will be refreshments available of course, and copies of the books to buy – they’ll even sign them if you like
It’s in the online programme (as Elsewhen Press presents) so be sure to add it into your personal Grenadine schedule. We’re looking forward to seeing you there.
