Suspend your disbelief at the Liars' League Fact & Fiction event on Tuesday March 8th!
We've got SIX fantastic pieces for you this month, including fiction based on fact, creative nonfiction and some brain-twisting metafiction which messes with the nature of storytelling itself, plus a truly disproportionate number of authors named Smyth and Smith ...
Doors open at 7pm and the show starts at 7.30: get there early for a front-row seat to experience a builder dangling above the abyss, a bomber on a bus, a fable from the African plains, an unpublished protagonist, a railway obsessive and the mostunbelievable action hero you will ever encounter.
All this for a fiver on the door, plus our legendary literary quiz (win the new Granta Aliens issue, including work by Paul Theroux and Ann Patchett, courtesy of our friends at Granta!) and bargain wine all night.
After That, We Are Ignorant by Bilal Tanweer GRANTA NEW VOICE 2011
The Cold Blue Morning of Gidley Jones by Brindley Hallam Dennis
The Miller's Tale by Richard Smyth
Dial A for Action by James Smyth
Ironwork by Malachi King
Icosi Bladed Scissors by Alex Smith
Oh, and if you haven't seen our new LL TV videos of the performances, check them out here: NSFW due to sex and swearing ...
