BookD Live Event - with the grand master of science fiction Brian Aldiss

BookD Live Event - with the grand master of science fiction Brian Aldiss

Last night's BookD celebrated the 60th anniversary of the publication of Brian Aldiss's first short story ‘A Book in Time’ which tells the story of a sci fi travelling bookshop adventure. It appeared in the Bookseller edition in 1954 and never appeared in print until now.
Volume 1 of The Brian Aldiss collection was published yesterday and now stands in it’s own right as a glorious, fat wedge of words – packed with over 50 books spanning between the author’s entire career from his debut novel in 1955 to his most recent work.
With stories such as A Book in Time, Breathing Space, Outside, The Failed Man, Let’s Be Frank, The Ultimate Millennia, Blighted Profile, Poor Little Warrior, The Arm, The Bomb Proof Bomb and many many more it’s pretty hard not to get caught up by Aldiss’s imagination and fabulous humour in this interview who stands as a true master before us.
