Pippa Goldschmidt, Joyce Chng and Brian M Milton. Contrasts today as we meet the first woman in space visiting Edinburgh, tentacles on a football pitch in Glasgow and a space opera from Singapore.
While we’re all hunkering down for a while, we thought we’d experiment with bringing a little something of our Event Horizons to your own home.
Events, book launches, conventions, festivals – all gatherings are cancelled, so we are offering Event Horizon as a platform for published writers in the first instance. We are asking them to tell us a story, read an extract from a new release and send us their video – to phone it in, if you like.
We’re asking for 5-12 minutes, which is just about the same time-slot for each act at an Event Horizon.
So, grab yourself a drink, sit back, and let’s all enjoy a story.
Noel Chidwick, Editor-in-Chief, Shoreline of Infinity

Shoreline of Infinity’s Event Horizon Online is available free to view, but please consider a small donation to support this project.
At least during this time of COVID-19 we will be donating a portion of the income through this donation to the Bethany Christian Trust, who do a tremendous job helping the homeless in Scotland.
The income will go equally to the Bethany Trust, Shoreline of Infinity Event Horizon, and to the pool of contributors.
