Mixing fiction, interviews and essays, its subject is nothing less than the future.The first in what is set to become a science fiction series of books Adventure Rocketship! explores the theme Let’s All Go To The Science Fiction Disco – focusing on the intersection between music, SF and the counterculture. That means, among other subjects, we’ll be looking at how JG Ballard invented post-punk music (sort of…), the curious and enduring appeal of Rush’s magnum concept opus 2112 and the strange vistas of cities daubed with tomorrow’s digital street art and David Bowie, the alien connection...We’ll be talking to writer and sometime musician Michael Moorcock, three-times Clarke Award winner China Miéville, and counterculture troublemaker and SF novelist Mick Farren. Essayists include David Quantick (Radio 2’s The Blaggers Guide), BSFA Award winner Jon Courtenay Grimwood, and comics writer Rob Williams (Marvel, 2000AD). We’ll have new stories from World Fantasy Award winner Lavie Tidhar, Liz Williams, Martin Millar and Tim Maughan.
