Aliette de Bodard on fire again!

Congratulations to our Guest-of-Honour Aliette de Bodard for her recent award of Best Novelette at the 2021 Ignyte awards to go with her already-impressive collection. The Ignyte awards ‘seek to celebrate the vibrancy and diversity of the current and future landscapes of science fiction, fantasy, and horror by recognizing incredible feats in storytelling and outstanding efforts toward inclusivity of the genre.’ Her winning work The Inaccessibility of Heaven can be found here

Ed Buckley R.I.P.

We are really saddened to hear of the death of Ed Buckley. As well as being a long-time Glasgow fan and wonderful artist, Ed was a Satellite Stalwart – attending and contributing to the programme at every Satellite convention to date – and of course our Guest of Honour at Satellite 5. He will be hugely missed.

How the Light Gets In

How the Light Gets In is an on-line festival of philosophy and ideas, with live debates, music and comedy. Three will be 80 events and over 100 speakers, including Satellite 4 Guest-of-Honour, Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnell.

It is being held on the dates we had planned to run Satellite 7 until we were forced to postpone to next year – so we know your diaries are empty!

More details on their website howthelightgetsin.org
