Science Fiction, Science Fact, Science Fun
with Guests of Honour:
Satellite 7 is the latest in a series of science fiction conventions with a strong science element that have been running in Glasgow since 2007. Each event has a different theme: this time we celebrate the planet Jupiter, in Art Deco / Rocketpunk style. Come and join us for a fun-filled weekend of talks, panel discussions, workshops and games.
For Sock's Sake
Need more Sock in your lockdown life? Of course you do! Rather than face being furloughed in a dark drawer, the wonderful Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre, due to appear live at Satellite 7, is performing a series of sign-up shows beginning with Socks in Space on August 13th. It also has been posting up re-performances of classic Sock sketches. More information, clips and other stuff to be found on their Facebook page here

We are sad not to be seeing all our friends this weekend in Glasgow as originally planned, but look forward to welcoming you to a great convention in February 2021. Meanwhile please stay safe and well.

Of Dragons, Feasts and Murders
Some good news at these difficult times. Our Guest of Honour, Aliette de Bodard’s latest book from the Dominion of the Fallen series, Of Dragons, Feasts and Murders will be out on the 7th of July.
The cover copy reads:
From the author of the critically acclaimed Dominion of the Fallen trilogy comes a tale of dragons, and Fallen angels — and also kissing, sarcasm and stabbing.
Lunar New Year should be a time for familial reunions, ancestor worship, and consumption of an unhealthy amount of candied fruit.
But when dragon prince Thuan brings home his brooding and ruthless husband Asmodeus for the New Year, they find not interminable family gatherings, but a corpse outside their quarters. Asmodeus is thrilled by the murder investigation; Thuan, who gets dragged into the political plotting he'd sworn off when he left, is less enthusiastic.
It'll take all of Asmodeus's skill with knives, and all of Thuan's diplomacy, to navigate this one — as well as the troubled waters of their own relationship....
A sparkling standalone book set in a world of dark intrigue.
So, get yourself down to Amazon (UK, US and FR) or Kobo to get your copy pre-ordered now!
