Futures Far and Near: Gareth L. Powell and Heather Child in Conversation

Thursday 21st February 2019 7:30pm - 9pm Cabot Circus, Bristol Literary Event, Signing, Chargeable Event

Join us for an evening of speculation with science-fiction authors Gareth L. Powell and Heather Child.

Gareth L. Powell, author of the acclaimed Embers of War, is widely said to be the next big thing in British space opera. Garnering acclaim from such authors as Ann Leckie and Adrian Tchaikovsky, Embers is a thrilling tale of war, exile and acceptance, bold and action-packed but populated with complex and nuanced characters. The sequel, Fleet of Knives, will pick up where that story left off and is sure to be just as good, if not even better!

Heather Child is the debut author of the near-future thriller Everything About You. As personalised technologies and automated services increasingly operate behind the scenes in our day-to-day lives, Child’s novel presents a frighteningly plausible scenario in which the dark potential of the ‘big-data’ age is revealed.

Gareth and Heather will be discussing their novels and the many different ways science fiction can  interact with and illuminate the world of today. Whether diving into the far futures of space opera or writing cautionary tales set just around the corner, both authors demonstrate the remarkable flexibility of the genre.
