Conan Doyle’s Lost World

By Adam Roberts | March 2, 2009
Categories: Events and Appearances

At the weekend I popped up to Edinburgh to take part in one of these 'Lost World Read' events: specifically a 28th Feb, 6-9pm talk called 'Lost Worlds'. Deftly chaired by Stuart Kelly, and sponsored by Napier University's Centre for Literature and Writing (known, brilliantly, as 'CLAW'), the panel consisted of China Miéville, Roger Luckhurst and myself discussing Conan Doyle's novel. It was an excellent and enjoyable occasion in every way.

Interesting fact: the event was at the Augustine United Church, on George IV Bridge. Ken Macleod was in the audience, and chatting to him afterwards I discovered that this very church appears in The Night Sessions, as the location for the silent club. So now you know.
