A quick reminder that I’ll be talking about Railhead/Black Light Express at Leicester’s National Space Centre on Saturday 18th November as part of Leicester University’s Literary Leicester festival. Tickets are free and can be booked here. If you want to make a day of it, author Alastair Reynolds will be giving a talk about Mars in fiction and reality at 3pm. (And there’s the space centre to explore too,of course, though you have to pay as normal for admission to that.)
I’ll also presenting awards to the winners of a short story competition which the National Space Centre are running. The winning stories are being posted online here. There are some very impressive ones, and I’m looking forward to meeting their authors!
