Brian Aldiss at Forbidden Planet

  • [Brian Aldiss at Forbidden Planet ]

BRIAN ALDISS will be signing his autobiography, IN THE TWINKLING OF AN EYE at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Tuesday 4th August from 6 – 7pm!

Writer, soldier, bookseller, father: Brian Aldiss has earned many titles in his life. In the Twinkling of an Eye is a candid, vivid and charming look at the stories behind this distinctive writer of fiction.

His life as a struggling novelist is unflinchingly laid bare. There are recollections of the beauty and freedoms of Sumatra, the camaraderie of the army and the sobriety of post-war England, bookselling in Oxford, marital breakdown and financial impoverishment. With insight and honesty, Aldiss delves into his role in the new wave of science fiction writing in the 1960s, and his friendships with his contemporaries: Anthony Storr, J. G. Ballard, Kingsley Amis, Doris Lessing, Michael Moorcock and William Boyd.

This is Aldiss at his most versatile, outspoken best.
