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.

11th September 2015
Professor Edward James
SF & Fantasy Writers in WW1
Edward James

Edward James was a senior lecturer in mediaeval history at various universities including Rutgers, Dublin and York for 40 years but since he retired he has written and given talks on subjects including Lois M Bujold, SF and Fantasy set in London. This time he will be talking about SF & Fantasy writers in the Great War. His website on the subject has been given an award by the BSFA and was the subject of a display at last years Worldcon in London. He has stories of the likes of Algernon Blackwood, Lord Dunsany, Dennis Wheatley and H G Wells and how the war affected them and their writing.

Next Meeting
9th October 2015
Justina Robson

Justina Robson
Justina Robson has written many books over the last 15 years beginning with the critically acclaimed - all of her first four novels were nominated for three awards each - and then moving to a more popular series (Quantum Gravity) mixing fantasy and SF elements with a sense of humour. This year sees the publication of "The Glorious Angels" - her first novel in several years and the first after the series.
Is this a new departure or a return to something earlier? this should be interesting.
