Forbidden Planet: author signings

Forbidden Planet is hosting a multi-author signings at 3.00pm on 30 July, at the Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London. On hand to sign your purchases:

Tim Lebbon has won the Bram Stoker Award for his short fiction, and the British Fantasy Society Award four times. His novelisation of the movie 30 Days of Night also won him a Scribe Award in 2008. “Surrounded by a vast, toxic desert, the inhabitants of labyrinthine Echo City believe there is no other life in their world. Some like it that way, so when a stranger arrives he is anathema to powerful interest groups.’

BFS member Lebbon is interviewed on the Orbit website, where he’s asked, among other things, ‘Why are you so dark?’

Dr Simon Morden is a bona fide rocket scientist, having degrees in geology and planetary geophysics, and is one of the few people who can truthfully claim to have held a chunk of Mars in his hands. Degrees Of Freedom is the third in the Metrozone series of books, set in the decaying urban jungle of a future London.

Philip Palmer writes ‘intelligent, darkly humorous SF fizzing with energy, explosions and originality ‘ as shown in the incredible acclaim for his previous novels Debateable Space and Red Claw’. Philip is also a film and television writer and producer and writes for radio and theatre. ‘The Hell Ship hurtles through space. Inside the ship are thousands of slaves, each the last of their race. The Hell Ship and its infernal crew destroyed their homes, slaughtered their families and imprisoned them forever.’

Nicole Peeler vexes literature in her role as an assistant professor of English Literature at Louisiana State University. ‘The heroine of Tempest Rising, Jane True, always knew she didn’t quite fit in with so-called normal society. During her nightly, clandestine swim in the freezing winter ocean, a grisly find leads Jane to startling revelations about her heritage: she is only half-human.’

To remind you: to celebrate the release of BBC Books’ six classic Doctor Who titles, Forbidden Planet is also hosting a signing with Chris Achilleos, Terrance Dicks, Carole Ann Ford and Frazer Hines on 16 July at 1.00-2.00pm. Meanwhile, Chris Foss is signing his book Hardware on 21 July at 6.00-7.00pm. Both events also take place at the London Megastore.
