Thanks once again to chad Dixon for providing the media for the last BSFA London meeting, which featured Jeff Noon, interviewed by fellow author Matthew de Abaitua.
Jeff Noon is an award-winning British cult novelist, short story writer and playwright. He won the Arthur C Clarke Award for Vurt, the John W Campbell award for Best New Writer, a Tinniswood Award for innovation in radio drama and the Mobil prize for playwriting.
He was trained in the visual arts, and was musically active on the punk scene before starting to write plays for the theatre. His work spans SF and fantasy genres, exploring the ever-changing borderzone between genre fiction and the avant-garde.
He will be interviewed by Matthew de Abaitua, author of Arthur C Clarke shortlisted The Red Men and the novels If Then and The Destructives.

MP3 audio only
For the last few months Chad Dixon has been valiantly trying his best to broadcast BSFA interviews with Periscope, it’s a little error prone so if it doesn’t work we’ll just do the audio. Cheers Chad!
Audio and Video – on the night.
