Science Fiction & Weirder Things

This free lecture series about science fiction features author Craig Laurence Gidney in conversation with Prof. andré carrington.

Intellectual curiosity and imaginative speculation are closely linked. Long before magazines specialized in publishing "scientifiction," there were Weird Tales and stories of arcane wonder in the writings of figures we might look to today as the forerunners of horror and dark fantasy. Craig Laurence Gidney (@ethereallad) is the author of two novels, Bereft and A Spectral Hue (a Carl Brandon Society Parallax honoree), the short story collections Sea, Swallow Me and Skin Deep Magic (both finalists for the Lambda Literary Award), and a novella, The Nectar of Nightmares. He is also Creative Liaison for the Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) Caucus of the International Association for the Fantastic in the Arts.

Join us for a discussion about dreams and nightmares, making old traditions new, the value of fabulation, the sensation of weirdness, and being Black, gay, and weird in the world of contemporary literature.
