Competition time: win Aliens, edited by Jim Al-Khalili

We have two rather green and glittering copies of Aliens, science asks: is there anyone out there, published by Profile Books and edited by Jim Al-Khalili of Radio 4’s The Life Scientific to give away. The competition is open to BSFA members from anywhere in the universe, and we thought we’d be nice and extend this also to UK-based members of our Facebook discussion group.


You can read a sample chapter here on aliens in SF: aliens-ian-stewart-on-science-fiction

What’s it about? Jim has asked nineteen scientists to answer the question, is there anyone else out there?

Here’s Jim talking about it:

To enter the competition, please tell me which Arthur C. Clarke novel does Jim mention in the sample chapter? Send your answer, along with your name, address, BSFA membership number (if relevant) with ALIENS COMPETITION in the subject header to my chair email address. Competition closes midnight Wednesday 23rd November. We thought we’d make it then as we will also have a copy as a prize in the raffle for the BSFA London meeting with Ian Whates and Gerard Earley which takes place that night, so if you go to that, you never know, you might also get to win a copy there! And if you don’t, you can still enter when you get home.
