BSFA/SFF Mini Convention

Less than a day to go before the Science Fiction Foundation and British Science Fiction Association hold their annual joint mini-convention. It’s free and open to the public (other than the annual general meetings at lunchtime, which are members-only), so please join us! The BSFA’s guest of honour this year is the wonderful Anne Charnock, while it’s my honour to fill that role for the SFF. The event will be held in Lecture theatre 1 at the Blackett Laboratory, Imperial College London, SW7 2AZ (entrance on Prince Consort Road, on the south side near Queens Gate Road). The schedule is as follows:

0930: Doors open
1000: Welcome and SFF interview (Stephanie Saulter interviewed by Professor Sarah Brown)
1055: Short break
1105: SFF “Fake News” panel: “Political discussion recently has been more and more dominated by discussion of ‘fake news’: did SF see this coming? And does science fiction provide us with any tools for better understanding the media and reality landscape we’re confronted with?” Stephanie Saulter, Anne Charnock, Chris Beckett and Graham Sleight (moderator).
1155: Lunch break (suggested venue: Queens Arms)
1200: BSFA AGM
1330: SFF AGM
1440: BSFA interview (Anne Charnock interviewed by Gerard Earley)
1530: BSFA panel:  “Is science fiction addressing the really big issues facing humanity?” David Gullen, Andrew Wallace and Donna Scott (moderator)
1630: End

    I love stories.
    My new novel, Sacred, is all about them. Publication info will be posted as soon as I have it. In the meantime check out Gemsigns, Binary and Regeneration, available wherever good books are sold.
