SFF Panel with Adrian Tchaikovsky, Lauren Beukes and Justin Lee Anderson

Join us for a night of all things Sci-Fi and Fantasy at our fantastic panel event, featuring multi-award-winning authors Adrian Tchaikovsky (Children of Time), Lauren Beukes (Shining Girls) and Justin Lee Anderson (the Eidyn Saga). The trio will be chatting about their latest works and answering audience questions, followed by a signing.

Tchaikovsky's ALIEN CLAY is a disturbing and prescient slice of space opera, as a professor condemned to study on a forbidding alien planet that holds a tantalising secret.

Beukes' BRIDGE is a scintillatingly realised slice of speculative fiction, as the daughter of a maverick scientist stumbles upon a potential gateway to other worlds.

Anderson's THE BITTER CROWN, second in his stunning Eidyn Saga, returns readers to a world where the war for a kingdom exits the shadows now that a terrifying secret has been revealed.
