NC Speculative Fiction Night this Sunday: meet hashtag #BullSpecNC

So. I haven’t been able to get out to do much flyering, or send much PR out to the newspapers, etc. to promote THIS Sunday’s NC Speculative Fiction Night. (Other than Independent Weekly, which as always is super supportive and made the event one of their picks of a busy (is there any other kind around here?) weekend.) That’s right: 3 days away! Sunday Sunday Sunday!! At Durham’s Sci-Fi Genre Comics and Games! From 5 to 7 pm! Be there!

In order to promote the event (and Bull Spec #7 of course!), we invite everyone attending NC Speculative Fiction Night to live tweet the event with hashtag #BullSpecNC – Bring your iPads and smart phones, post to your Twitter account and your Facebook and/or Google+ page. Help us promote Bull Spec and local writers to the internet at large.

If you can’t attend because you’re busy/sick/best man at your brother’s wedding, that’s OK too! You can still join us online @5:00pm by searching Twitter for #BullSpecNC to see what you’re missing and play the online version of Sh*t David Drake Says.

This event is also part of the NC Science Festival – in addition to the readings, we’ll have some discussion about “The Science of Science Fiction”. As part of the festival, folks can download the official iPhone app, which allows people to record and upload “the sounds of science” and possibly have their clips heard on-air on WUNC. Yes, this is going to be AWESOME.

So. Please, if you can, help spread this last-minute word. Spread the #BullSpecNC hashtag! We’ve got flyers and handouts (covering several upcoming events as well) to post and share around. What I’d love to see? Lots of people posting flyers around the Triangle, taking pictures, and uploading them with the #BullSpecNC hashtag. And to see you all on SUNDAY SUNDAY SUNDAY!
