Mike FrenchNo, that’s not an admission of lack of cool, but the exciting premise of an evening’s entertainment at the Edge Nightclub in Luton. Mike won’t be alone, there will be other performers of written, spoken and musical work. All under the intriguing title of

Dixie Fried – A beatnik night!

The organisers describe it as…

an off the wall night of beatnikkery and hepcat havoc. We’ll be celebrating the talent of local emerging and established writers, poets, and musicians with an open mic session from 9PM onwards, followed by an evening of smokey jazz and trippy psych with DJ sets from local cool cats Lupo and the hippest shop in town, Shop 33.

If that’s not enough, there will also be a Vintage Clothes and Records sale, as well as a selection of work available from the writers of Luton Haiku and Clod Magazine, which recently made its way into the Tate Modern!

While we’re at FantasyCon we will be having a launch party for our two latest fantasy titles.

Mandigo and the Hellhounds, by Anders Reemark, is the book in the Mandigo trilogy. Translated from the Danish by Nina Sokol it is a classic epic fantasy story, suitable for younger readers but just as gripping for older readers.

When he was eight, Mandigo found a baby on a raft in the river and carried her to Greta, the wise woman who lived in the forest. By the time he was twelve, Greta had taught him some magic, but an evil force was looking for the baby and Greta decided to leave for the baby’s safety. Mandigo would have liked to go with her but his world is suddenly turned upside down with the arrival of a fearsome knight accompanied by a pack of Hellhounds…

The launch party is in the Harbourlights Restaurant in the Grand Hotel from 12-1pm on Saturday. If you’re coming to FantasyCon, please join us at the party.
