Nova Mob: April 6th: Dangerous Visions and New Worlds: Radical Science Fiction, 1950 to 1985

Murray from Nova Mob writes

A reminder that on Wednesday April 6th our guest speaker Iain McIntyre will be talking about his and Andrew Nette’s (eds) newly-published book Dangerous Visions and New Worlds: Radical Science Fiction, 1950 to 1985. It’s a feast of pulp, countercultural, and radical perspectives on a period of massive social and cultural change.

Iain will be speaking to us over a Zoom link, so you have two options for the evening:

● Join the Zoom session from your home. You’ll see Iain and other Mob members, and view Iain’s presentation, however to buy Iain and Andrew’s books you’ll have to place an order and collect them at a later date. 

● Join the gathering at the Kensington Town Hall (“KTH”). Iain won’t be there due to a COVID-enforced isolation of a household member but he and his presentation will be on the big screen, or on your laptop if you bring one along. Iain has kindly provided signed copies of all three titles which will be available for purchase, as per the photo below. You can also join a pre-Mob pub and meal gathering, as usual there’s a table booked at the Doutta Galla Hotel under the name “Nova Mob”. Also possibly relevant to your decision is that the Kensington Town Hall’s broadband connection continues to be almost but not quite the right size, so there’s a small chance of technical difficulties at KTH; these will not affect the wider broadcast.
