Founded in 1971, meeting monthly and still going strong, the B.S.F.G. is a non-profit-making organisation that provides an informal atmosphere in which SF fans can meet one another and professionals in the field. You can find out more about us elsewhere on this website, meanwhile here are some details of our next two meetings.

7th November 2014
Theresa Conquers Mars
ERB Mars

Using a mixture of primary and secondary resources including stunning and fun visual imagery, committee member and regular attendee Theresa Derwin will be delivering a presentation on the obsession with Mars in the nineteenth century, particularly the fin de siècle (last decade of the 19th century) and beyond. Referencing the obvious texts such as H G Well's 'War of the Worlds' Theresa will also discuss the ERB Barsoom series, the discovery of the Martian canals and Percival Lowell, reference material by Adam Roberts and lesser known texts from the period. In her inimitable style, Theresa hopes to enlighten and entertain on a currently relevant topic
