Science Fiction lovers have an extra reason to be happy this December! Paul McAuley and Richard K. Morgan are coming at the @British library for a literary debate during the International Literature Festival Bucharest. Along with our guests we will explore the Sci-Fi literature and we will bring a novel perspective that you can contribute to by asking questions or making additions.
We will be waiting for you on Friday 5 December, at 1830. Also, if you want to be better informed before the debate or you want to find out more after the event, you can find the books of the two authors in our library. We have for you volumes like Altered Carbon, Broken Angels and Market Forces from author Richard K. Morgan, but also Evening’s Empires and The Quiet War from Paul J. McAuley.
About the authors
Paul McAuley is one of the most read hard science fiction writers as well as one of the authors who redefined the space opera sub-genre. Some of the recurrent themes in his novels are space travel, alternate realities or high technology. His debut novel Four Hundred Million Stars (1988) brought him his first award, the Philip K. Dick Award, only to be followed by a series of other prestigious prizes, including the Arthur C. Clark Award for Fairyland (1995). His work includes series, stand-alone novels and short stories.
Richard K. Morgan
British author Richard K. Morgan is best known for his Sci-fi novels Dark Defiles, The Steel Remains, Woken Furies, Broken Angels, and Altered Carbon. His extensive travels in Europe, America or Africa influenced his work, and especially his ability to intricately create new worlds. An international English teacher, Morgan quit his day job only when his best-selling novel, Altered Carbon (2002), made a break-through. The book is to be turned into a movie.
