Manchester Speculative Fiction

Meeting: 11th December


Last night’s meeting was held in the slightly chilly ground floor room at MadLab. But we had warm mulled wine to keep the cold away as well as a slight overabundance of mince pies. I’m pleased to say that we finished on time at exactly 21:30. Don’t expect that level of self-control at future meetings!

First of all I’d like to wish everyone Season’s Greetings, Happy New Year, Merry Christmas, Io Saturnalia, Joyous Kwanzaa, Dong Zhi Kuai Le! I hope you all have a relaxing few weeks until the next meeting.

During last night’s meeting we had four pieces of writing to discuss, one short story and three novel extracts, another evening of highly detailed and enjoyable critiques.

We headed around to the Marble Bar afterwards as usual. Looking back to last month’s meeting it seems we failed to avoid the usual off-topic topics. Get your New Year’s resolutions ready for next month’s meeting please: thou shall not talk about That Game.

Speaking of which . . .

See you all at the next meeting: Wednesday 8th January
