Please join us at Malvern Books for Fantastical Fictions, an odd-monthly event focusing on the literary fantastic across genres and cultures hosted by Rebecca Schwarz and Chris Brown. We plan to bring together writers and readers of fantastic literature in Austin by featuring published writers reading from new works and from examples of fantastic literature available on our shelves. Discussion, Q&A sessions, and open mic for works in progress will follow the readings.
Please email us to sign up for our Fantastical Fictions email list if you’d like to receive news about our upcoming fantastic literature events, as well as announcements about new works of fantastic literature in the store.
This month we’re thrilled to welcome writer Stina Leicht to our stage.
Stina Leicht is a two-time Campbell Award nominee for Best New Writer and a Crawford Award finalist. Her latest novel, Cold Iron, debuted in July 2015 with Simon and Schuster’s Saga imprint. Two other Fantasy novels, Of Blood and Honey and its sequel, And Blue Skies from Pain, are set in Northern Ireland in the 1970s. Her Feminist essays were featured in the Hugo Award winning Women Destroy Science Fiction! Issue of Lightspeed Magazine. She is currently working on her newest novel, Blackthorne, a sequel to Cold Iron set to be published in the summer of 2017.
