In conversation: S. T. Gibson and Susan Dennard

Join us to hear S T Gibson and Susan Dennard - two outstandingly imaginative writers at the peak of their powers - discuss their dark and entrancing fictional worlds. 

is the occult, sinister and imaginative new novel from S.T. Gibson, the first in a striking new series.  Described as Gothic, passionate and darkly irresisitible, Evocation spins an entrancing tale of curses, magic and deals with the devil. 

When a family curse threatens David's life, he will turn to the only person he's ever trusted, his ex-boyfriend, Rhys-which means he will have to open his heart to Moira, Rhys's wife.

The day David Aristarkhov's occultist father died, he bought himself an Audi, drank every drop of liquor in the house, and abandoned his life as a teen psychic prodigy. Now pushing thirty, David is a Boston attorney, moonlighting as a medium for a secret society.

But when the Devil comes to collect on a deal David's ancestor made, he reluctantly reaches out to his ex-boyfriend Rhys for help. However, to get to Rhys, David will have to befriend Moira, Rhys's wife. The trio gets a little too close for comfort as they combine their powers to unravel the century-old curse, and if they don't break the curse by David's thirtieth birthday, he won't live long enough for everyone to figure out their feelings for each other.

The Hunting Moon
is the second spellbinding instalment in Susan Dennard's gorgeous fantasy series and the sequel to her bestselling novel The Luminaries. 

Winnie Wednesday has gotten everything she thought she wanted. She passed the deadly hunter trials, her family has been welcomed back into the Luminaries, and overnight, she has become a local celebrity.

The Girl Who Jumped. The Girl Who Got Bitten.

Unfortunately, it all feels wrong. For one, nobody will believe her about the new nightmare called the Whisperer that's killing hunters each night. Everyone blames the werewolf, even though Winnie is certain the wolf is innocent.

On top of that, following her dad's convoluted clues about the Dianas, their magic, and what happened in Hemlock Falls four years ago is leaving her with more questions than answers. Then to complicate it all, there is still only one person who can help her: Jay Friday, the boy with plenty of problems all his own.

As bodies and secrets pile up around town, Winnie finds herself questioning what it means to be a true Wednesday and a true Luminary and also where her fierce-hearted loyalties might ultimately have to lie.

Join novelists ST Gibson and Susan Dennard as they discuss their wildly inventive new novels and the enduring fascination of fantastical fiction.
