Novels, With a Twist – Researching For Historical Accuracy (Thurs 22nd Sept, 7pm-9pm)
22 September at 7:00 pm until 9:00 pm£7.00
Two local Steampunk authors, Paul Eccentric and Colin Edmonds, join forces for an evening discussing their methods for researching period novels. The Steampunk genre may allow history to be altered, to a degree, but that doesn’t mean the setting; the language and the attitudes of the day should not be historically accurate. Lots of amusing anecdotes along the way from two attention seeking luvvies, who will prove that there’s always more than one way to skin a cat, ensuring the event is both amusing and informative.
Paul lives in Aston Clinton and has been writing and performing for over thirty-five years, with eight books to his name. As a poet, singer, actor and director, he has trodden the boards repeatedly at festivals across the country including Glastonbury and The Edinburgh Fringe. He is also responsible for the local telephone box library as well as two others in nearby villages.
Colin lives in Chalfont St Giles and was, for many years, a very successful TV comedy writer, writing for the likes of Bob Monkhouse, Paul Daniels as well as writing for the Gladiators series and The Eurovision Song Contest and crops up regularly on TV as a talking head for all things comedy. He has since published three novels and two novellas in his Steam, Smoke and Mirrors Steampunk series.
Both authors are published by ‘Caffeine Nights Books’ who also publish horror writer Shaun Hutson, Journalist and TV pundit Garry Bushell and Comedian Joe Pasquale among others.
