Science Fiction, Fantasy and Women
Sat 2 March
7pm – 10pm
Join Laure Eve (The Graces, 2016 Faber & Faber; The Curses, 2019 Faber & Faber) and Samantha Shannon (The Bone Season series, 2013-2017, Bloomsbury; The Priory of the Orange Tree, 2019, Bloomsbury) in conversation.
Men have famously dominated science fiction and fantasy, both in terms of writers and readers. The genres have also been well known for their absence of nuanced female characters. But with such developments as an all female edition of the iconic comic 2000 AD and the fact that more women are, at last, winning the Arthur C Clarke Awards and the US Hugos, are we are making headway or is there still a long way to go?
