Current Research in Speculative Fiction, Liverpool, England, June 18, 2011

Earlier this year, I mentioned the call for papers for the Current Research in Speculative Fiction Postgraduate Conference at the University of Liverpool on June 18, 2011. They have settled on their program after having an enormous response from the speculative fiction community. They are no longer accepting papers, but you should consider attending if you will be in the neighborhood in June. If I could, I would certainly be there!

Details from the official CRSF Facebook Group:
