See China Mieville's Talk In Full


In 2009, noted author China Mieville came to the University of Kansas, here in lovely Lawrence, for the Richard W. Gunn Memorial Lecture series. He spoke for over an hour, covering topics as diverse as the effects of H.G. Wells' vision of the future on the genre and how science fiction sees itself today.

We've a greatest hits compilation from that lecture on our YouTube channel for some time now. Now I'm happy to announce that we have the entire lecture posted to that site for your enjoyment.

Here's the beginning of the talk, with James Gunn saying a few words about his brother, who endowed the lecture, and China's introduction.

There are seven parts to the lecture, so you can watch them when it's convenient for you.
