A brand new one-day science fiction convention Andromeda One, is coming to the Custard Factory in Birmingham this month. The event will feature book launches, kaffeeklatches, panels, signings, writing and publishing workshops and will also be offering a stream dedicated to workshops on gender parity, multiculturalism and disabilities within the genres of science-fiction, fantasy and horror.
This year’s Guests of Honour are acclaimed novelist, comic book writer and screenwriter Paul Cornell (famed for his contributions to the Dr Who TV series) and science-fiction author Jaine Fenn, creator of the Hidden Empire series.
Event co-ordinator Theresa Derwin said ‘I’m delighted to be bringing this exciting new event to Birmingham, which promises to be both heartily entertaining and loaded with useful content for writers. We’ll also be opening up discussion on some of the most pertinent issues today in the science-fiction, fantasy and horror community.’
Andromeda One runs on Saturday 21st September from 11am-10pm, with the book-sales room opening from 9am. To book your ticket, or for more information, visit http://terror-tree.co.uk/andromeda-one/
