You’ll know him from the ABC airwaves and from bestselling books like Saga Land. Now, Richard Fidler has released an epic new book on the magical, labyrinthine and richly storied city of Prague.

There are 20 free tickets available to see Fidler live at the Royal Oak Hotel Balmain on Tuesday 25 August, 7pm, where he’ll be discussing The Golden Maze with Sunil Badami. For your chance to win a ticket, sign up to the Roaring Stories newsletter before Monday 17 August.

Nobody misses out though: we’ll also be live-streaming the event on the Roaring Stories Facebook page.

Thirty years after his first visit, Fidler returns to Prague to uncover the glorious and grotesque history of Europe’s most instagrammed and uncanny city. Tracing its origins in medieval darkness to its uncertain present, Fidler does what he does so well – curates an absolutely engaging and compelling history of a place. You will learn things you never knew, with a tour guide who is erudite, inquisitive, and the best storyteller you could have as your companion. Read more.

Richard Fidler presents Conversations with Richard Fidler, an in-depth, up-close-and-personal interview program broadcast across Australia on ABC Radio. It is one of the most popular podcasts in Australia, with over five million downloaded programs every month. Richard is the author of the bestselling book Ghost Empire.
