SFX Book Con 2

Saturday 10th November 2018 12:30 Noon - 6:15pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Signing, Chargeable Event

SFX, the UK's biggest selling sci-fi and fantasy magazine, has teamed up with Foyles once more to prove that some sequels are better than the original.

Featuring more authors, more panels, and even more signings, SFX Book Con 2 will host some of the greatest names in genre writing for a day of full-throttle discussion and signings. There'll be spaceships, time travel, dragons, magic—and maybe the odd paradox.

There will be four panel events throughout the day with a 15 minute break between each and two extended signing sessions.
