After 8 years of their famous Sci-Fi Weekender, Chic festivals have expanded with the launch of their sister-event, SFW in the City.
Launched this past weekend at the O2 arena in Sheffield, Zealot Script was fortunate enough to be in attendance at the event.
In traditional style, there was lights, music, dancing, cosplay, merchandise stalls and a host of special guests to delight the fans across the course of the two-day event. Highlights included James Cosmo, of Game of Thrones fame, and the seventh doctor himself, Sylvester McCoy, in attendance.
More important to our readers, were the authors in attendance. Hosted by Telos Publishing, some of the authors we caught up with included Bryony Pearce, Stephen Laws, Simon Clark, Raven Dane, Sam Stone and Fiona Angwin.
As well as book signings and interviews, there were a great array of author panels including “Writing in the 21st Century” hosted by Bryony Pearce and “Publishing in the Digital Age” hosted by David J Howe of Telos Publishing.
We’ve got plenty of notes and recordings to work through, but keep your eyes peeled for more information from these panels later this week.
In the mean time, here’s a picture of Sylvester McCoy being interviewed for you Whovians out there!
