Eric Scott Fischl, the author of the dark, historical fantasy, Dr Potter’s Medicine Show, which tells the story of a disgraced civil war doctor, a drunken dentist, and two accidental outlaws who fates are all bound up with the Chock-a-saw Sagwa Tonic, is escaping to MisCon: Missoula’s Science Fiction & Fantasy Convention from 26-29 May 2017.
Eric will be taking part in a variety of panels and signings across the weekend, plus he’s very hard at work putting together his latest novel, The Trials of Solomon Parker (coming from Angry Robot October 2017), so you never know… he may be able to tell you a little more!
