Fight Like A Girl cover by Sarah Anne Langton

The BristolCon Foundation’s first sponsored projected of 2016 is the launch party for Kristell Ink’s new anthology Fight Like A Girl.

The launch will take place at The Hatchet Inn, Frogmore Street, Bristol (one of only two surviving medieval inns in the city centre) on Saturday April 2nd from 1pm-5.30pm.

There’ll be swordplay from contributing author Fran Terminiello and friends, readings from the anthology and discussion of the role of women in SF&F. There will also be a buffet to munch. You can see Fran’s skills in action in this video of an impromptu display in the bar at FantasyCon in 2014. Also showing off her moves in the video is Juliet McKenna, another of our contributors, who will be at the launch and could well be persuaded to throw someone to the floor with her little finger; always a treat.

Copies of ‘Fight Like A Girl’ will be available to buy on the day. RRP £9.99

Tickets are available from eventbrite – https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/fight-like-a-girl-flag-launch-event-tickets-20658444965

The entry price of £5 per head is entirely to cover the cost of the buffet. The extra 95p is a fee charged by eventbrite to cover their administration costs. So if you want to join in with the buffet, please buy a ticket so we know how many people want feeding!

You can also join in the fun on our Facebook Page.

    That’s fantastic – a book launch. Just the thing I’d love to do for my debut book – The Cracked Amulet, just published a week ago( Book 1 of The Wefan Weaves Trilogy, epic fantasy with a dark edge).
    Would you consider me for a launch?

    All the best
