Session 1: A Coffee For Your Thoughts - Laying the Groundwork

In the vein of the ABC's Book Club, each contributor picks a book, film, or anything in between, for the others to engage with. Focused around spec fic. Is it something classic that tells us where the genre got its roots, or is it something new, edgy and gnarly, showing us where the genre might be going? Either way, we’re deep-diving to set the scene for Speculate 2019.

Featuring:

Elizabeth Flux, Dan Golding, C. S. Pacat and Will Kostakis. Moderated by Ian Laking.
