Out of This World, Science Fiction Exhibition at British Library Opens Friday, May 20, 2011

Andy Sawyer, science fiction librarian and my former advisor at the University of Liverpool’s MA in Science Fiction Studies programme, is guest curating the upcoming exhibit, “Out of this World: Science Fiction But Not As You Know It” at the British Library in London. Opening this Friday, May 20 and running through September 25, it will be the first science fiction exhibition at the prestigious library. Y has entered many UK trip contests, so I hope to visit the exhibition. If you are in or around London, I guarantee you that Andy will have assembled an impressively kick-ass exposition for the uninitiated and aficionado alike. Visit the official site here, or read the library’s press release here.

I am a professor of English at the New York City College of Technology, CUNY whose teaching includes composition and technical communication, and research focuses on 20th/21st-century American culture, science fiction, neuroscience, and digital technology.

    I just read about this the other day, I think it was in SFX. It looks mighty fine and I trust Andy’s serving up some good stuff. Can’t wait to get there to see it, early July for us.

    That’s great, Gerard! Post some pictures on Flickr if photos are allowed and send me a link. I don’t know if I will have a chance to go :-(

  3. Some member of the Science Fiction Bookclub went along to a few of the talks and we had a great time. An excellent Exhibition all round.

    Anyone interested in joining the UK’s only exclusively SF Bookclub are very welcome.

    It sounds like you have a fun reading group. It’s too bad that I am not in the UK, because I would certainly try to attend some of your discussions. Good luck on your continued success!
