A Night at the Space Opera

On Thursday evening, November 7th, at 7:30 PM, three of Orbit’s science fiction authors will be talking space opera, science fiction, and all other subjects under the sun (or out of its orbit) in a space-tacular online event: A Night at the Space Opera: Science Fiction Writers on Our Future in Space!

You doubtless already know James S.A. Corey, author of LEVIATHAN WAKES (US | UK | ANZ) and its sequels in the Expanse series; he will be represented by Daniel Abraham, one half of the Corey writing duo.

Ann Leckie is the author of ANCILLARY JUSTICE (US | UK | ANZ), a debut that came out in October and is already being praised as one of the best science fiction books of the year.

Rachel Bach is the pseudonym of epic fantasy author Rachel Aaron, whose science fiction debut FORTUNE’S PAWN (US | UK | ANZ) will be out on November 5th.

The three of them will be in conversation with Clara Moskowitz, associate editor at Scientific American covering space and physics.

    This is excellent. What time zone is the 7:30pm?. Is that UK time by any chance?

    Really cool with an online event like this, but for the fans from all over the world “7:30 PM” is pretty vague… There’s no timezone on the G+ event page either, but I think maybe the time there is localized, so maybe you’re talking about 0:30 AM UTC? Looking forward to it nonetheless!
