Vol 9 No 2. Saturday, May 4, 2019: May the 4th be with you. (And also with you.) It’s Star Wars day, it’s Free Comic Book Day, it’s book release party day for “secretive” Durham author Zeno Alexander’s The Library of Ever at The Regulator Bookshop, and there’s plenty more as the summer event calendar really begins to get started. Readings from Valerie Nieman (To The Bones) and Lewis Shiner (Outside the Gates of Eden) being the highlights as we head into the convention season. As always see the full events calendar, with everything from more readings to a meeting of the Tolkienist Society. But before that… some awards news!
- Mur Lafferty’s adaptation of Solo: A Star Wars Story has earned her first Scribe Award nomination, presented by The International Association of Media Tie-in Writers.
- Dale Bailey’s novel In the Night Wood has been nominated for a Shirley Jackson Award for “exceptional work in the literature of psychological suspense, horror, and dark fantasy.”
