China Mieville and the future of Melbourne

The various Overland events at the Melbourne Writers’ Festival are now listed here. You’ll note that Overland 196 features a special supplement (made possible by the City of Melbourne) with SF writers imagining different futures for the city. We’re very pleased that joining the panel will be the utterly awesome British writer China Mieville. You can read an interview Rjurik did with China here. Oh, and you can also hear me babbling away about Killing on the RN Book Show here.

Overland is a not-for-profit magazine with a proud history of supporting writers, and publishing ideas and voices often excluded from other places.
