 Come to the inaugural launch of the Chi Reading series. For this first of quarterly events we'll have Steve Erikson, Claude Lalumière and Camille Alexa reading from their works.

This evening will combine three readers, a table of books to buy, and music in between. We're hoping to have a few raffles. Free to attend.

Archaeologist and anthropologist STEVEN ERIKSON's debut fantasy novel, Gardens of the Moon, was short-listed for the World Fantasy Award and introduced fantasy readers to his epic ten-volume Malazan Book of the Fallen sequence, which has been hailed “a masterwork of the imagination”. His latest novel, Forge of Darkness begins a new trilogy. A graduate of the Iowa Writers' Workshop, his novels and novellas are published in many languages, and his works have appeared on the New York Times Bestseller list. Find out more at: and
