We're delighted to announce we're back at the Star of Kings for the next instalment of Unsung Live. For our 9th outing we've got our usual mix of new and established writers, who will be bringing us stories from across every genre. Expect the weird, the fantastic and the futuristic. Reading this time:
• Angus Watson is the David Gemmell-Award-nominated author of Age of Iron. As well as writing epic fantasy, he's written hundreds of features for newspapers including The Times, Financial Times and Telegraph, and the latter even sent him to look for Bigfoot in America. He lives in London, but you can find him on Twitter at @GusWatson (http://www.twitter.com/GusWatson) or find his website: www.guswatson.com (http://www.guswatson.com/)
• Ed McDonald - Author of Blackwing, Ed McDonald has spent many years dancing between different professions, cities and countries, but the only thing any of them share in common is that they have allowed him enough free time to write. He currently lives with his wife in London, a city that provides him with constant inspiration, where he works as a university lecturer. When he's not grading essays or wrangling with misbehaving plot lines he can usually be found fencing with longswords, rapiers and pollaxes.
• Gareth E. Rees - Gareth E. Rees is the founder and editor of the website Unofficial Britain ( http://www.unofficialbritain.com ), author of Marshland (Influx Press, 2013) and The Stone Tide (Influx Press, forthcoming in 2018) His work has featured in anthologies including An Unreliable Guide to London [Influx Press], Mount London [Penned in the Margins], Acquired for Development By [Influx Press], Walking Inside Out: Contemporary British Psychogeography [Rowman & Littlefield], The Ashgate Companion to Paranormal Cultures [Ashgate], and the spoken word album A Dream Life of Hackney Marshes [Clay Pipe Music].
• Peter Haynes - Peter Haynes lives and writes in Birmingham, UK. His work has appeared in Reliquiae Journal, Litro USA, Unsung Stories, Spelk Fiction, and elsewhere. In 2016 he was nominated for a British Science Fiction Association award in short fiction for his story Build A Cat.

Had a brilliant time at Unsung Live last night! Listening to stories and catching up with old friends. Oh, and there was booze. Perfection.

Thanks to @UnsungTweets for a fantastic night of speculative fiction and fantasy! Really enjoyed reading - thanks for having me!

One of the best yet, and that's saying something. Every story was beautifully constructed and emotive, every author made their reading into a performance. Can we have them all back?
