Terry Nation Author Appearance

Terry Nation biographyAlwyn Turner is among the artists descending upon Manchester for the Deansgate Super SF Saturday next weekend, where he will be talking about his marvellous new book The Man Who Invented the Daleks – The Strange Worlds of Terry Nation!

Described as a “Clash of the Titans”, the event at Waterstone’s Manchester 21st May features some of the UK’s top indie SF publishers for one very extraordinary day of fantastic fiction. Authors include Andy Remic, Gary McMahon, Ian Whates, Mike Wild and Pat Kelleherm while Big Finish and Dead Ringers maestro Nev Fountain will also be on hand for a discussion of all things Gallifrey!

If you haven’t got your copy of the Terry Nation biography, please do take this early advice and place your order now (ahead of the book’s release on May 25th) whether you can make it to Manchester next week or not. We have a full review of the book and an interview with Alwyn Turner coming soon, and this book is really worth buying if you have any interest in the early years of television comedy, Doctor Who and action adventure television in the 1960s and 1970s.
