North Manchester FM: Hannah’s Bookshelf, Saturday 19 August, 2-4pm

Coming up on this week’s Hannah’s Bookshelf on North Manchester FM, I’ll be chatting to the brill RJ Barker. We’ll be on air on Saturday, 2-4pm.

RJ lives in Leeds with his wife, son and a collection of questionable taxidermy, odd art, scary music and more books than they have room for. He grew up reading whatever he could get his hands on, and has always been ‘that one with the book in his pocket’. Having played in a rock band before deciding he was a rubbish musician RJ returned to his first love, fiction, to find he is rather better at that. As well as his debut epic fantasy novel, Age of Assassins, RJ has written short stories and historical scripts which have been performed across the country. He has the sort of flowing locks any cavalier would be proud of.

RJ’s novel Age of Assassins, from Orbit Books, is now available in all major book stores, online and on Amazon.

I’ll be talking to RJ about Age of Assassins and all things epic fantasy. And, of course, he’ll be sharing his selections for this week’s Apocalypse Books.

Tune in on Saturday at 2pm on 106.6FM (if you’re in the North Manchester area) or listen online (if you’re further afield).
