Freecon, Sydney

I did a bit of a plug on Twitter yesterday and was going to tell you today that if you're in Sydney you could head down to the Bankstown City Library and check out Matthew Chrulew and Thoraiya Dyer who are both out and about promoting their new Twelfth Planet Press book - The Company Articles of Edward Teach/The Angaelian Apocalypse.

In Garry Dalrymple's "Nearly Live from Freecon" email he informs that they both read excerpts tonight:

Matt Chrulew, read from his story about Alien visitation / Religious End times and how these events brought changes to the lives and outlooks of a formerly tight group of twenties something friends who find themselves at the sharp edge of changes to their world.

Thoraiya Dyer read from her story, which she had considered to be ‘Adult’ due to it’s content, but which is being promoted as ‘YA’. In this story a boy and a girl find themselves transposed into the bodies and living the lives of real pirates, as a consequence of a costume party dress up.     Each is resisting taking the path parents have laid out for them, and the reluctant med student is brought face to face with ‘good old days’ disease and the reluctant law student is brought to view the excesses and cruelties of an entirely lawless society.

I think they're going to be round for the rest of the weekend though if you are heading down over the weekend.

And I should say that yes, Thoraiya's story has some VERY racy content in it but I don't think that moves into Adult rating. But others may disagree.
