We can think of no better way to spend the last weekend of the shortest month - other than booking time off to come to SFL18.

Our partners at SFX Magazine have a stellar line-up for their mini-con on Saturday 24th February 2018. It runs 1pm - 5pm and takes place at the wonderful FOYLES bookshop on Charing Cross Road.

Timetable tuns like this:

1:00 – 2:00pm

Life, the Universe and Adaptation

What makes a great adaptation, how they can go spectacularly wrong and what it's like to see your worlds appear on screen... A stellar line-up of authors discuss.
Authors: Richard Morgan, Claire North, Adam Roberts, Anna Smith Spark & Vic James


2:00 – 3:00pm

Signing/ Break


3:00 – 4:00pm
