Reading Café: Fantastic literature

Reading cafe CCXP COLOGNE

In the reading café at CCXP COLOGNE, authors from the entire realm of the fantastic read from their works, whether high fantasy, urban fantasy, steampunk, paranormal romance or science fiction, which means there was something for all fans of the fantastic to discover. The novels could either be acquired directly from the authors or at the Feder & Schwert stand. This was because the reading cafe were organised in cooperation with the Feder & Schwert publishing house.

In addition, there were signing sessions at the author's tables during which interested people could have their books personally signed and have a little chat with their favourite author.

You could look forward to these authors who, among other things, read from their books in the reading café (all readings took place in German):

Feder & Schwert - special publishing house for the fantastic

Feder und Schwert Logo

Feder & Schwert is an independent special publisher for the fantastic based in Cologne, which is already celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2019.

The publishing house became famous for, among other things, the German translation of the classic fantasy roleplaying game Dungeons & Dragons in version 3.5 and the German version of World of Darkness, but the programme has been reoriented almost entirely to books of fiction since the beginning of the 2000s.

The focus of the publishing house is now on the genres of urban fantasy and high fantasy. The most well-known examples might be The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher and the True Blood novels of Charlaine Harris. The publishing house also publishes novels for pen & paper roleplaying worlds like Splittermond and Pathfinder, as well as non-fiction books on the subject of roleplaying games. With the Wicked Queen Editions series, the publishing house also brought an imprint for feminist fantasy and science fiction to life in 2019.
