Game of History

Wednesday 12th November 2014 6pm - 7:30pm Bristol, Foyles, 6 Quakers Friars, Cabot Circus, Bristol, BS1 3BU Literary Event, Free Event

Delve into the mystical world of historical fantasy with a panel of acclaimed authors as they discuss the rising popularity of the emerging sub-genre.

With the global success of George R R Martin's 'Game of Thrones' book series - a blending of Plantagenet history with elements of mythology - and the increasing demand for historical fiction with magical undercurrents, such as the works of Phillipa Greggory, historical fantasy has never been more popular.

Join a host of authoritative voices on historical and fantasy fiction as they explore why the two genres combine so successfully and decipher where the history ends and where the fantasy begins.

Jack Wolf is the author of the critically acclaimed The Tale of Raw Head and Bloody Bones.

Helen Hollick, best-selling author in the US, author of many books including the 'Sea Witch Voyages' (pirates and white witches) - official webiste

Juliet McKenna, an Oxford classicist whose numerous fantasy books are history-based.

Lucienne Boyce, Bristol author of To The Fair Land - official website
