Solaris Rising - Forbidden Planet Signing

Here’s a snap of Saturday’s signing of Solaris Rising. Seated from left-as the signing began: collection editor Ian Whates, Alastair Reynolds, Jaine Fenn, Lavie Tidhar, Pat Cadigan, Eric Brown, Dave Hutchinson.

Surely bringing together so many authors in one place threatened some kind of a critical mass incident? Indeed, one could hear the tables’ groaning under the stock. Physicists may debate for some time to come whether it was FP’s liberal supply of biscuits and cake, or the post-signing trip to the pub that saved central London.

Thanks to the many people who came and queued-up, and many thanks to the authors who travelled so far from so different places to make it a success.
