Book Launches

We have a number of great books being launched at Fantasticon this year, many of which will be available at the Fantastic Books Store so you can have them signed by the author for free!

Kate Russell

Author, technology journalist and lifelong gamer. A regular expert on the sofa at ITV’s Daybreak and various other TV and radio stations, she writes columns for National Geographic Traveller magazine and Web User magazine.

Kate launched her first novel, Mostly Harmless, at the first FantastiCon in 2014. Last year she successfully saw the success of the crowdfunding campaign to create the audio version of her YA fantasy realised live on stage.

This year who knows what she has planned for you? We do... but that would be telling!
