A Taste of Rarebit
This Saturday I'll be heading down to Cardiff to take part in the launch of Rarebit: New Welsh Fiction, an anthology that features my story, 'Mangleface.' To celebrate the release, as well as National Short Story Day, Parthian editor Susie Wild has organized a literary tour with many of the contributing authors, including Rachel Trezise, Deborah Kay Davies, and Roshi Fernando. Starting at 2 p.m., we'll be hitting up a few literary hotspots, as well as locations that inspired some of the works, before ending up back at NosDa Hotel and Bar, right in the city centre (and conveniently close to the train station, for those commuting). Tickets are a tenner, but that includes a paperback copy of the limited edition anthology - which means the tour is basically free. So come along and schmooze and hobnob and do all the things that writers and artistic types do at these events... including getting too drunk and possibly a bit belligerent, albeit in a friendly way.
