London MCM Expo organisers are delighted to announce that Peter F. Hamilton, one of the finest British sci-fi authors writing today, will be a special guest at the London’s biggest entertainment weekend held at Excel London later this month. Hamilton will be hosting a panel to discuss his work and answer audience questions, and he will also be signing books for his fans.
Noted for combining epic scale space opera with startling perspectives on tomorrow’s technological and cultural trends, Hamilton’s previous books include the Greg Mandel Series, the groundbreaking Night’s Dawn Trilogy series and the galaxy-spanning Commonwealth Saga, which is set in the same world as the Void Trilogy but thousands of years earlier.
Visitors to the London MCM Expo, which runs from 29-31st October, will be able to meet many more top writers and artists in the event’s Comics Village. Comics guests set to attend this month’s show include Bernard Chang; Paul Cornell; Antony Johnston; Tony Lee; Jock and Andy Diggle.
