Bull Spec Author Fest

Bull Spec magazine is a great home for local authors. We're delighted to host the Bull Spec third annual summer speculative fiction event, led by editor Samuel Montgomery-Blinn, on Saturday, August 3, at 7 p.m. Our wealth of featured authors includes Mythopoetic and William L. Crawford Award-winning author Karen Lord (coming to us from Barbados!); Ann and Jeff VanderMeer; Will Hindmarch; Asheville's Nathan Ballingrud; Durham's Mur Lafferty (The Shambling Guide to New York City); and Robert V.S. Redick. Redick, often compared to masters such as George R.R. Martin and Philip Pullman, brings his acclaimed fantasy series, The Chathrand Voyage, to a triumphant close with The Night of the Swarm. Join us for an evening of readings, remarks, discussion, and book signing.
