Welcome everyone! Park your space ship outside, and let the robots take your coat and fetch you a drink while you enjoy some of the finest romantic science fiction and fantasy in the book world.
In a little while, we'll be joined by Sara Creasy; on Tuesday Isabella Jordan joins the party; on Wednesday, Elisabeth Naughton; on Thursday Misa Buckley; and on Friday Zoe Archer. Together these writers cover a broad swathe of speculative and futuristic fiction, and it's fun to see how genres can cross over and include elements of the paranormal and horror as well as fantasy. Our guests of honour will be chatting about science fiction and fantasy romance in general and their own books in particular, and each will be offering a fantastic prize.
Let me start the party by asking you if you're already a fan of sci-fi romance? If you are, what draws you most to the genre? If you're dipping your toe into sci-fi waters for the first time, what springs immediately to mind when you read, or hear, the words "science fiction"?
