Psst. Yeah, you. Interested in a fun and free uniquely geeky night out in that there London? Of course you are! Well, you’ve come to the right place. Geek Syndicate is super excited to be able to share the details of what is sure to be a brilliant evening.

It’s called Unsung Live and is described as a “live-lit storytelling night of speculative short stories”, and as far as we know it’s the only event of its kind in central London. It promises to be a friendly and informal night, with short intervals between readings and maybe even the chance to ask a few burning bookwormy questions of the authors in the house.

Unsung Live boasts an impressively stellar line-up too, consisting of Stephanie Saulter, best known for her Evolution trilogy Gemsigns, Binary and Regeneration, which are set in a near-future London and use the altered humanity’s lens to explore issues around race, class, inequality and social conflict; Ian Whates, who heads up the ace indie publisher NewCon Press (look them up, they’ve published some great stuff including Paul Cornell’s short story collection A Better Way To Die) Ian himself has written novels including City of Dreams and Nightmare and The Noise Within; Rose Biggin, who writes stories and plays and whose published fiction includes ‘A Game Proposition’ in Irregularity, ‘The Modjeska Waltz’ in The Adventures of Moriarty and ‘The Gunman Who Came In From The Door’ in Defenestration Magazine; and lastly but by no means least, Edward Cox, author of the epic fantasy trilogy The Relic Guild, The Cathedral of Known Things and The Watcher of Dead Time (a personal favourite of mine).

Unsung Live is taking place at The Star of Kings on York Way in London at 7pm on Wednesday 27 April. Places are limited so make sure you RSVP on the Meetup page where further details on the event can be found.
