China Mieville and Rob Shearman visit Liverpool for Writing on the Wall festival

SCIENCE fiction fans in Liverpool – of which I am one – are in for a treat this week as two of the genre’s big guns visit town.

Author China Mieville and Rob Shearman, the writer of classic Doctor Who episode Dalek among much more, are dropping in as part of the Writing on the Wall festival.

China is coming tomorrow and will read  extracts from his new book, Kraken, at the Liverpool Guild of Students on Mount Pleasant from 7pm.

Rob will be at the Contemporary Urban Centre on Saturday to read from his latest short-story collection ‘Love Songs for the Shy and Cynical’, starting at 4pm.

Writing on the Wall is an annual series of events that culminates in a festival in Liverpool, involving writing from around the world.
