To celebrate the launch of his creepy new short story collection 'Help the Witch', Tom Cox (author of '21st Century Yokel') is coming back to Norwich... but he won't be doing a normal launch... There won't be a reading as such - more a candlelit talk about ghosts, ghoulies, and all kinds of spell-binding supernatural stuff! And it's all happening in the suitably atmospheric haunted crypt at The Louis Marchesi (conveniently near some plague pits)... Perfect in the run up to Halloween...

Join us for the Norwich launch of 'The Ballad of Syd & Morgan' by Haydn Middleton - the new book published by Propolis (the imprint of the Book Hive).
