Ace Stories is a new series of literary events running between June and December 2010 created and directed by Jay Clifton. The programme will, Clifton says, “provide an entertaining but definitely seriously-minded programme of readings and music,” that promotes “literary appreciation and development.” In addition to six events at the Hotel Pelirocco in Brighton, the programme also features four events in October/November at the De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill-on-Sea, which will include film screenings, literary discussion, live music, and dramatic readings with a Deep South of the USA focus, as part of the Southern Discomfort season.

The inaugural Ace Stories event on 13th June features Cathi Unsworth, author of Bad Penny Blues and The Singer, plus local writers Howard Cunnell, reading from his novel Marine Boy, Heli Clarke, and live music.

Authors already lined up for future Ace Stories events include Science Fiction writer China Mieville (The City and The City and Perdido Street Station) Greek novelist and playwright Pavlos Matesis (The Daughter), and Amanda Smyth (Black Rock).

Ace Stories, Sunday 13th June, 2010, from 6pm to 8pm,
at Hotel Pelirocco, 10 Regency Square, Brighton, East Sussex. BN1 2FG
Admission £3.
