Nerds rejoice! There are still a few tickets available for a very special evening with two giants of the fantasy genre. George RR Martin is familiar to millions as the author of the crazily popular ‘Game of Thrones’ books and TV series, and alongside Robin Hobb, author of among others the ‘Realm of the Elderlings’ books, will be discussing how to construct elaborate alternative universes while still seeming believable to readers on Earth. Martin is famously outspoken on a range of topics so expect fantastical fireworks. Neither author will be signing books (boo!), but attendees will receive a pre-signed copy of Hobb’s ‘Fool’s Assassin’ (yay!).
The talk will be taking place at Freemasons’ Hall on August 19 at 7.30pm, get tickets ASAP for £45 at eventbrite.co.uk.
