We are delighted to be joined in store by two titans of the science-fiction world, Adrian Tchaikovsky (bestselling author of the Children of Time series, and more recently the City of Last Chances), and Lauren Beukes (bestselling author of the Arthur C. Clarke award winning Zoo city).

Adrian and Lauren will be in conversation, followed by a brief audience Q&A, and a signing!

About Adrian Tchaikovsky
Born in Lincolnshire, Adrian Tchaikovsky studied zoology and psychology at the University of Reading, before going on to train as a legal executive. Whilst working in a Leeds law firm, he kept writing fiction and published his first novel Empire in Black and Gold in 2008 – the first volume in what became his critically acclaimed Shadows of the Apt series. It was inspired by a role-playing game named Bugworld he managed whilst at university.

Tchaikovsky has written over twenty novels, five novellas and several story collections. In 2015, he published Children of Time – his celebrated science fiction novel about artificial intelligence, alienness and humanity’s battle for survival. It went on to win the Arthur C. Clarke Award the following year, and the second book in the series, Children of Ruin (2019), scooped the BSFA Award for Best Novel. The third, much-anticipated volume set in the same universe, Children of Memory, followed in 2022.

About Lauren Beukes
Lauren Beukes is the award-winning and internationally best-selling South African author of The Shining Girls, Zoo City and Afterland, among other works. Her novels have been published in 24 countries and are being adapted for film and TV. She’s also a comics writer, screenwriter, journalist and documentary maker.

Her work has been hailed by the likes of Stephen King, Gillian Flynn, George R.R. Martin. She has won several awards over the last ten years, including The Arthur C Clarke Award, The University of Johannesburg Prize, the Strand Critics Choice Award, The Kitschies Red Tentacle, The August Derleth Prize, RT Thriller of the Year, Exclusive Books Booksellers Choice Award and the prestigious Mbokodo Award for women in the creative arts from South Africa’s Department of Arts and Culture.
