Sledge Lit - Derby - November 26th 2016
"In Hand Of Glory, Susan Boulton deftly conjures the traumatic fragility of England in the years following the Great War, interweaving a love story and
supernatural crime thriller with an unflinching appraisal of the true horrors of conflict. Recommended." — Neil Williamson, award winning author of The Moon King.
"An intriguing story, beautifully researched with well-drawn characters and an involving central intrigue. Something a little different for the genre and all the
better for it. — Jo Zebedee. author of Abendau's Heir, the inheritance trilogy andInish Carraig.
"From the horrors of the First World War to the decadence of the Roaring Twenties, Hand of Glory is a revenge tale worthy of a Hammer Horror production.
Grisly murders, creepy séances, and gaslight shenanigans, not to mention the overriding presence of a certain severed limb with an occult power from beyond the grave, are combined with a sense of
mortal danger to keep the pages turning." —Mark Yon, Sffworld and book reviewer.
"A stunning and authentic tale of the supernatural, bound to give you goosebumps." — Alex Davis, author, published in Dark Horizons, The

Panels at Mancunicon
The Fuzzy Set of Horror
Saturday 19:00 - 20:00, Room 7 (Hilton Deansgate) 26th March 2016
Ghost stories, supernatural, suspense, gore, shock horror, all of these used to be more or less recognisable and identifed as distinct genres. Today they are
increasingly classified as just horror. What effect does this have on the writing, publishing, advertising and sales of the separate genres and what are we missing - or gaining - by merging the
genres into a collective whole?
Sunday 19:00 - 20:00, Room 6 (Hilton Deansgate) 27th March
The look and feel of gothic art and imagery in and out of the movies, from the work of Tim Burton to Penny Dreadful and the recent Crimson Peak, gothic art adds a new,
old dimension to the production designers palette. This panel of artists, fans and authors discuss the phenomena, what makes it so velvety and rich and how it influences and manifests in their

On Friday 23rd October I will taking part in my very first panel at Fantasycon 2015 in Nottingham. I am getting very excited!
Room: Suite 2
5.00pm Stealing from the Past: Fantasy in History
Much fantasy has real-world fantasy settings. We’re writing novels, not textbooks, so how far can we bend history out of shape to suit our own ends? This panel explores the challenges of placing
strange fictions in historical realities and what we can learn from them
choosing a setting: challenging assumptions about the period
how will it inform your characters?
research: how much is enough and what details to use?
the ‘clunk’: avoiding (or deliberately using) anachronisms
Moderator: Susan Bartholomew
Panelists: Jacey Bedford, Susan Boulton, Anne Lyle, Juliet E McKenna, Toby Venables
