Their always popular annual SF Quiz takes place on 8th February, where the BSFG plays host to Birmingham University SF group and everyone tries their knowledge against SF classics old and new!
The Quiz is on 8th February at the Briar Rose Hotel on Bennett’s Hill, Birmingham; this venues is just 5 minutes walk from New Street Station and handy for all bus routes. Why not come and meet us? The meeting opens its doors at 7:30 p.m.
From March normal meetings resume, starting the evening with a guest speaker, often a professional of in the field such as Brian Aldiss, Justina Robson or Peter Hamilton. Recent guests include authors Graham Joyce, Eric Brown and Simon Green. As advance notice the BSFG are happy to confirm that the March meeting hosts a talk by local urban horror author James Brogden (author of The Narrows which is set in Birmingham).
The group itself has many members of all ages, and between them the membership has an enormous wealth of knowledge of literary SF, as well as films, television, etc. If you want to know about a particular author or book, the BSFG is unlikely not to be able to help you! Just let them know you are a first timer when you turn up and any member will be happy to introduce you to the committee and make you feel as welcome as they can.
If you live anywhere in or around the West Midlands, the BSFG is the group for you! For further information, and a copy of their monthly newsletter, please email BHAMSFGROUP@YAHOO.CO.UK or check out their website: www.birminghamsfgroup.org.uk
