Our very own au­thor event gets a fol­low-up – and it’s even big­ger!

SFX - - Event horizon -

In Fe­bru­ary, SFX joined forces with Foyles book­shop on London’s Char­ing Cross Road to bring to­gether some of the best science fic­tion and fan­tasy au­thors in the UK for an af­ter­noon of pan­els and sign­ings. Our pan­els united Richard Mor­gan, Claire North, Vic James, Adam Roberts and Anna Smith Spark to talk about adap­ta­tions of nov­els, and Peter F Hamil­ton, Adrian Tchaikovsky, Gareth L Pow­ell, Adam Christo­pher and Una Mc­Cor­mack to pon­der whether space-set SF is bet­ter when it’s utopian or dystopian.

We know you en­joyed it as much as we did, so we’re do­ing it again – and SFX Book Con 2 will be big­ger and longer, with more au­thors and more pan­els.

Tak­ing place on Satur­day 10 Novem­ber – mean­ing it’s the ideal time to pick up some Christ­mas presents for friends, fam­ily or your­self – it’s the per­fect day out for genre book lovers.

We’re de­lighted to an­nounce that SFX Book Con 2 will feature… • MR Carey, right (The Girl With All The Gifts, Fell­side) • Chris Wood­ing (Mal­ice, Tales Of The Ketty Jay) • Sarah Lotz, be­low right (The Three, Day Four) • Tade Thomp­son (Rose­wa­ter, Mak­ing Wolf ) • Re­becca Levene (The Hol­low Gods,

Doctor Who: The New Ad­ven­tures) • James Smythe (I Still Dream, The Ex­plorer) • John Gwynne (The Faith­ful And The Fallen,

A Time Of Dread) • Tasha Suri (the up­com­ing Em­pire Of Sand) We’ll be an­nounc­ing more names over the com­ing months – we’re look­ing for­ward to see­ing you there!
