Sydney Writers Festival – 14 May

Once again I’ll be back at the beautiful Carrington Hotel in Katoomba, this time to discuss Speculating Futures and Bending Genres with Steven Amsterdam and Kim Westwood as part of the Sydney Writers Festival. I think it will be a very interesting discussion as I feel, and from what I’ve read of Amsterdam’s and Westwood’s work, I doubt they’d disagree, that speculative fiction speaks very strongly to the present, to the concerns that we all feel right now. As William Burroughs said, ‘when you cut into the present the future leaks out.’
