Science fiction authors will present their latest short tales to be published in Scotland in Space this autumn by Shoreline of Infinity. These authors will offer short readings of their stories and discuss the questions these pose on the social implications of Scottish space exploration and offer meaningful pointers to how the country can explore space in an inclusive and non-exploitative manner. The seminar will also include short talks by academics who have written accompanying essays which offer background scientific, social and literary information to the science fictional tales.
