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.

10th June 2016
Ian Whates

Ian Whates

Ian Whates’ first published stories appeared in the late 1980s in small press magazines. After this he took a break from writing until he joined a writer's group in 2004.
In 2006 Ian launched the independent publishing house NewCon Press - the books, their covers and contents have racked up an impressive array of credits – including several BSFA Awards and inclusion in Year’s Best anthologies.
In addition to his publishing and writing, Ian has been a director of the Science Fiction Writers of America (SFWA) and the British Science Fiction Association (BSFA).
His fantasy trilogy, "The city of 100 rows" was published between 2010 and 2012 alongside two volumes of a science fiction series ("The Noise Within" and "The Noise Revealed"). An unrelated novel "Pelquin's Comet" was published by NewCon in 2013.

Next Meeting
8th July 2016

Dave Lally
Dave Lally

Dave Lally was born and raised in rural Ireland. His family were one of the very first in their area to get a TV set which introduced him at an early age to SF programmes such as Quatermass, Space Patrol, and Fireball XL5.
He has been involved in SF fandom since the early 70s in Ireland and the rest of the UK. He will be talking abot elements of that long history from his early days with "The Prisoner" fans and the Porthmerion convention, through his involvement with Eastercon, Irish National Conventions, Eurocon and his chairmanship of the European SF society, to his current post with the BSFA.

PLACE: Briar Rose Hotel, Bennett's Hill

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

Admission : £4 (£3 for Members)
