Space, Time, Machine and Monster

A science fiction, fantasy and horror conference will be taking place at the University of Glamorgan, Treforest, on Saturday 21 June (10am – 4.30pm).

There will be workshops, discussion panels and presentations hosted by such literary giants as Jasper Fforde (new weird), Tim Lebbon (horror) and Rhys Hughes (fantastical/absurd). Hughes will be giving a talk on magical realism and later doing an OuLiPo presentation on how to write impossible stories. Which sounds intriguing. Also lined up is Andrew Cartmel, a scriptwriter for Dr Who, Dark Knight and Torchwood.

Everyone is welcome. Tickets are available on the door only and will cost a mere 5 of your earth pounds (or £3 concessions).
