About this Event:

From H G Wells to Arthur C Clarke and the novelists of today, writers of science fiction have tried to imagine a future that is entirely plausible. But how good were the science fiction writers of the past at imagining the future, and what of today’s science fiction writers, are their imaginings based on a realistic vision of the future, or are their works implausible? Science fiction writer, academic and critic Adam Roberts comes up with some answers.

Roberts has been nominated three times for the Arthur C. Clarke Award for science fiction. His books include, Salt, Gradsil, and the Tolkien parody The Soddit. Roberts’s most recent novel is Jack Glass and he has just published a short story collection, Adam Robots. Roberts teaches at Royal Holloway, University of London.

This event is part of a series organised in partnership with the Folio Society.
