About this Event
British Sci-Fi writer Chris Beckett, will give a talk on his writing and Sci-Fi as a genre

“I’d define SF as a form of fiction in which (a) at least one aspect of the fictional world is different in some way from the world we actually inhabit, and (b) that difference is (even if only nominally) consistent with science rather than magic. SF suits me because of the freedom it gives me to play with ideas and human psychology. All fiction involves making things up. In SF you get to make up the world!”

Chris Beckett’s Fiction
Book Sale: We have been donated a personal collection of over 500 SF titles which we are selling at bargain prices.
