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.

13th May 2016
David A Hardy

David A Hardy

Dave Hardy is well known to all of the group. He has been a space artist since 1950, professionally for almost as long having worked on "The Sky at night" since 1957. His work has appeared on book and magazine covers, made regular appearances on several TV shows, and in books including "Challenge of the Stars", "Galactic Tours", and "Visions of Space". This time around he will be presenting an updated talk on Science Fiction before it appears at conventions later in the year.

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.

PLACE: Briar Rose Hotel, Bennett's Hill
