Conjuring The Infinite author Kirkland Ciccone will be donning a Viking helmet and heading to Largs for the 2013 Tidelines Book Festival, which runs 31 Aug to 8 Sep. More info as soon as we know the precise date and time.

Why the helmet? Because the book festival runs at the same time as the Largs Viking Festival, which this year commemorates the 750th anniversary of the Battle of Largs. But then you knew that already!
