We are delighted to announce our fourth guest of honour, the mighty James Smythe. A hugely exciting voice in science-fiction and YA fiction, James joins already confirmed Guests of Honour Frances Hardinge, Scott Lynch and Adam Nevill for what is shaping up to be a fantastic weekend.
James Smythe is the award-winning author of the novels THE TESTIMONY (2012); THE EXPLORER (2013); THE MACHINE (2013), THE ECHO (2014) and NO HARM CAN COME TO A GOOD MAN (2014). His 2015 title WAY DOWN DARK marked the beginning of the Australia Trilogy, a YA title which quickly gained acclaim and has now been shortlisted for the Arthur C Clarke Award. The second part of the trilogy, LONG DARK DUSK, was released in April. James will be taking part in a number of activities at FantasyCon-by-The-Sea including a Guest of Honour interview and Q+A.
