A Voyage to Shoreline of Infinity’s Event Hoizon

On Monday night, the Voyage to Arcturus team (or Arcturus Voyagers as we were nicknamed on the night) had the opportunity to speak about our project at Shoreline of Infinity’s monthly evening of science fiction themed fun, Event Horizon.

A beautiful partnership – A Voyage to Arcturus & Shoreline of Infinity

We are delighted to have partnered with Shoreline of Infinity for the purpose of promoting and celebrating the work of David Lindsay. This has given us a chance to go outside the publishing sphere and really interact with our target market of science fiction fans!

We were part of a line up including performances from poet Colin McGuire, songs from The Dan Collins Band & Painted Ocean and a prose reading from Dee Raspin, winner of Shoreline’s short story contest, and the entire Arcturus team had a really enjoyable night – ‘I had a wonderful time!’ said Ruth N.

For our performance, project managers Ruth G and Julia did a short intro to the project and our aims, followed by Rachel from editorial giving a spirited reading from chapter 6 – Joiwind. We got some really positive feedback on our work from those attending the event, including Mike Calder of Transreal Fiction, one of Edinburgh’s finest science fiction bookshops.
