Following the publication of his brand-new book, Shards of Earth, Adrian Tchaikovsky, the Arthur C. Clarke award-winning author of Children of Time joins comedian and author Robin Ince in session to discuss his first book from the Final Architecture trilogy.

The war is over. Its heroes forgotten. Eighty years ago, Earth was destroyed by an alien enemy. These ‘Architects’ then simply disappeared, and Idris and his manmade enhanced humankind became obsolete. Now, Idris and his crew have something strange, abandoned in space. It’s clearly the work of the Architects. Hunted by gangsters, cults and governments, Idris and his crew race across the galaxy as they search for answers. For they now possess something of incalculable value, and many would kill to obtain it

In a unique twist on the author Q&A, we will watch as Adrian takes Robin on location to give an intimate insight into what inspires the fascinating and masterful worlds he creates. Their live discussion will delve into his extraordinary new space opera, with some of the book’s most riveting passages read aloud. This is an opportunity to witness a meeting of minds between ‘the break-out star of contemporary British SF‘ (Guardian) and the force behind one of the world’s most successful science radio shows.

There will also be an opportunity to ask all your questions about kinden, Bugworld and how he delicately balances the intricate worlds of magic and technology in his writing.

 Tilted Sessions offer you an intimate peek beyond the pages with your favourite authors. Over the course of an hour or two, these sessions will offer an exclusive insight into what inspires them and their processes, and sparks imagination and creativity. Wherever you are in the world, you can join from the comfort of your home via live stream, and have the chance to get your burning questions answered live.
