Lost World events

Two forthcoming events are part of the Lost World Read.

The first, on Thursday 26 February at the Pleasance Cabaret Bar, is the Writers' Bloc public reading event Doyle M for Murder. Like any other event from the Bloc's toilers on the fiction front, this can be relied upon to lower the tone.

The second (raising the tone) is a public lecture at Napier University on Monday 2 March by Professor Steve Jones on 'Lost Worlds and Worlds to Come', linking Darwin's theory to Conan Doyle's vision, as well as 'today's science fiction's preoccupation with an unhappy future rather than a noble past.'
