The Birmingham Science Fiction Group was founded in 1971 to enable local and not so local fans to get together to discuss science fiction and related topics.
In May 2011 our regular monthly meeting is proud to host a visit from Stephen Hunt, SF and Steampunk author. Stephen is recognised for his fantasy Steampunk Jackalian series and has recently been writing a continuing series of SF novellas (Sliding void, Transference Station). Stephen is also the publisher of the on-line magazine SF Crowsnest. Stephen is a recognised innovator of on-line technology.
So why not come and meet him at our meeting? Stephen is sure to give a fascinating talk and insight into his work and on-line publishing.
The meeting is on 11th May 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 unlikely not 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 to the committee and make you feel as welcome as we can…
