Jack Fennell editor of ‘A Brilliant Void’ – a collection of darkly funny short stories of Irish science fiction - presents a panel discussion on what makes Irish work in this area distinctive. ‘A Brilliant Void’ was the fifth book in the series. Recovered Voices, by Tramp Press. It featured
fifteen writers in the collection including Art O’Riain, a native of Thurles. The session will look at the historical elements that came to bear on such writing in Ireland and the context in which the pieces were written. Now with a proliferation of new books from writers, what is the future of the Sci-fi genre here? We’ll have readings from Sarah Davis Goff, author of the dystopian ‘Last Ones Left Alive’ (Tinder Press) and Danny Denton ‘The Earlie King & the Kid in Yellow’ (Granta) as part of the
session.
