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.

Aliette de Bodard lives and works in Paris, where she has a day job as a System Engineer. She studied Computer Science and Applied Mathematics, but moonlights as a writer of speculative fiction. She is the author of the critically acclaimed Obsidian and Blood trilogy of Aztec noir fantasies, as well as numerous short stories, which garnered her two Nebula Awards, a Locus
Award and two British Science Fiction Association Awards. Her space opera books include The Citadel of Weeping Pearls, a book set in the same universe as her Vietnamese science fiction On a Red Station Drifting. Recent works include The House of Shattered Wings, a novel set in a turnofthecentury Paris devastated by a magical war, and its upcoming sequel The House of Binding Thorns. She lives in Paris with her family, in a flat with more computers than warm bodies, and a set of Lovecraftian tentacled plants intent on taking over the place

PLACE: Briar Rose Hotel, Bennett's Hill

TIME: Doors open at 7.30 pm for an 8pm start.
