Join bestselling authors Christina Henry and Tim Lebbon as they discuss their newest releases and how to subvert classic tales.
Author of bestsellers such as Alice and The Lost Boy, Christina Henry, brings us another twisted imagining of Alice's Wonderland. With a returning cast of popular characters – including Alice and Hatcher – as well as some new favourites, Looking Glass is a suitably bloody return to a place where magic runs as freely as secrets and blood. The book is a collection of four dark novellas where we encounter Alice and Hatcher desperately looking for a place to rest, delve deep into Hatchers past, stumble upon the Village of the Pure and meet Elizabeth, a girl with a secret butterfly that used to be called the Jabberwock...
Tim Lebbon, the bestselling author of The Silence, will also be sharing insights into his newest book,the similarly as thrilling supernatural eco thriller,Eden. In large areas of the planet, nature is no longer humanity's friend. Off-limits to humanity and given back to nature, the Virgin Zones were vast areas of land intended to become the lungs of the world. Dylan leads a clandestine team of adventurers into Eden, the oldest of the Zones with his daughter Jenn. She is determined to find her mother there, but neither she nor the rest of their tight-knit team are prepared for what confronts them. Nature has returned to Eden in an elemental, primeval way. And here, nature is no longer humanity's friend.
Please join Christina and Tim for what promises to be an evening of thrilling conversation about where darkness truly lies, and to celebrate their new extraordinary novels.
