In Store Event – With Robin Ince

April 8, 2015 @ 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
Durty Nelly’s, 397 Murray St (In Shafto Lane)
Perth,

Just after Easter we'll be getting a visit from comedian, writer, science enthusiast and bibliophile Robin Ince. Robin will be in town for his Happiness Through Science tour and I highly recommend getting along to his Perth show if you can. As cool as his science related stuff is, it's another of his projects that particularly intrigued me. The Bad Book Club documents Robin's search for the very worst books he could find, the heroic failures of literature. Along the…

Book Launch: Letters to Tiptree

Stefen’s Books, Shop 8 Shafto Lane
PERTH, 6000

We'll be launching a new book by local independent publisher Twelfth Plant Press. The book is called Letters to Tiptree and I think the publishers own blurb sums it up best. “In celebration of the 100th Anniversary of Alice Bradley Sheldon's birth, and in recognition of the enormous influence she had on the field, Twelfth Planet Press is publishing a selection of thoughtful letters written by science fiction and fantasy’s writers, editors, critics and fans to celebrate her, to recognize…

We're very pleased to have local author and store favourite Juliet Marillier back with us for the release of her new book Tower of Thorns.

Book Launch – Juliet Marillier

October 1, 2016 @ 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM
Stefen’s Books, Shop 8 Shafto Lane
PERTH, 6000

Den of Wolves As with the first two, this is mixture of fantasy, folklore and mystery-thriller. We return to ancient Ireland as once again the healer Blackthorn and her friend and sometime bodyguard Grim are sought out to help someone with an unusual problem. As with the other two in the series, there is a familiar fairytale at the kernel of the book, though I won't spoil that for you by telling you what it is. Suffice to say that…

The Subjugate by Amanda Bridgeman I was hoping to do more events in 2019, so I'm thrilled to be involved with launching WA author Amanda Bridgeman's new book, The Subjugate. It's a science fiction / crime thriller set in a religious community where violent criminals are neurally 'edited' to remove their criminal tendencies and are then returned to serve the community as obedient servants called Serenes. It's also a community plagued by a recent spate of horrific murders. As the body…
