WHEN I’m not on here – which seems to be most of the time nowadays – my day job is looking after the Liverpool Daily Post and Echo websites.
But that doesn’t mean I’m walking away from science fiction – far from it – as our online literary festival LiveRead shows.
Now in its second year, LiveRead celebrates writing and writers from Merseyside and around the world. It starts on May 1 – here’s the link.
This time around among masses on content, we will be hosting two sci-fi live web chats with giants of the genre.
We start on Tuesday May 1 with Stephen Baxter. Yes, that Stephen Baxter – the guy who has worked with Arthur C Clarke and Terry Pratchett, and has a massive track record of thought provoking science fiction – who will be online from 12-1pm to talk about his work – here’s the link for that.
If you’re a regular reader of scyfilove (hello mum!) you’ll know I interviewed John last year for a story that went from my little blog to every major science fiction news site around the world. When he talks, people listen!
If you want a taster of how awesome they will be, here’s the web chat we did with Joe Hill last year – that’s Stephen King’s son.
