Little Shop of Speculations

Posted on October 4, 2014


Really enjoyed my slot at The Speculative Bookshop last night. Great format, lovely audience and ace performances from all the speakers. Never much of a comics person, I nevertheless enjoyed John Lees’ introduction to horror comics and Adam Murphy’s career retrospective, and I’m loving Adam’s Corpse Talk, interviews with dug-up famous people. Leo Glaister provided a hugely entertaining entre act sequence, and the evening was topped off by Hal Duncan’s barnstorming rendition of his poem, Sodom. All that and it’s a superb place to pick up books by your next favourite indie press author.

The organisers/curators, Dale and Jen, should be colossally proud of their night, and if anyone wants to join me, I’ll at the next one like a shot.
