If you’re in or near London, an event tomorrow (Sat 19th June) that may be of interest. Two of the UK’s main sf organisations, the Science Fiction Foundation, and the British Science Fiction Association are holding their AGMs. But, since AGMs are inherently a bit dull, they have for the last several years built a one-day convention around them. Tomorrow’s event will be taking place at the Royal Astronomical Society near Piccadilly (map etc here). The event programme is below; among other things, as you’ll see, I’m interviewing Malcolm Edwards, long-time fan and now one of the most long-serving publishers/editors in the UK field.

9:30 — Doors Open
10:00 — Welcome
10:05 — SFF panel: “How do we understand TV as a literary medium?”
11:00 — SFF guest: Rob Shearman interviewed by Jane Killick
12:00 — BSFA AGM
12:30 — Lunch
13:30 — SFF AGM
14:00 — BSFA guest: Malcolm Edwards interviewed by Graham Sleight
15:00 — BSFA Panel: “Is fandom a valuable support for genre publishing or merely a pleasant diversion?”
16.00 — Close
