Christopher Priest at Birmingham SF Group(0)
Christopher Priest will be visiting the Birmingham Science Fiction Group in March 2012. Christopher is the author of twelve novels and numerous short stories. He has won the Arthur C. Clarke best novel award 2003 and the British Science Fiction Association best novel award 2002 (for The Separation) as well as the 1996 World Fantasy best novel award 1996 for The Prestige.
Christopher’s writing career spans an enormous breadth of subjects, published over a 40 year period (his first novel, Indoctrinaire, was published in 1970). The BSFG is very lucky to host to such a well respected author and Christopher’s talk is likely to give fascinating insights into his creative process.
The meeting is on 9 March 2012 at the Briar Rose Hotel on Bennett’s Hill, Birmingham; this venue is just 5 minutes walk from New Street Station and handy for all bus routes. The meeting opens its doors at 7:30 p.m.
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 likely to be able to help you! Just let us 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 we 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 our monthly newsletter, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
