Event description

Description

Before 'science fiction' was even a recognised term, the authors of the 1890s were writing imaginative tales of technology, exploration, and the future. They largely published them not in dedicated sci-fi magazines -which did not yet exist- but in mass-market publications which also printed adventure fiction, westerns, crime writing, celebrity gossip, light verse, political editorials, and popular science. Taking us on a brisk tour of these periodicals, Will Tattersdill offers insight into the publishing milieu that gave rise to a genre, asking not only how SF has shaped other genres, but also how the magazine format itself played a crucial role in its creation.
