Our annual Gollancz Festival is BACK with a lockdown twist – we’re going virtual for a special digital event!

For the first time ever, fans from all over the world can connect with their favourite authors over a packed day of panels, readings and special e-book and audio discounts, plus games and competitions to kick off Gollancz’s 60th anniversary year celebrations.

You will have the chance to hear from authors including Ben Aaronovitch, Joanne Harris, Joe Abercrombie, Brandon Sanderson, Garth Nix, Nalini Singh, M. John Harrison, and from Gollancz’s 2021 debut authors including Susannah Wise, Louise Carey, Jonathan Sims, Adam Simcox, J.T. Greathouse. Book covers for our Autumn highlights will be revealed as well as authors such as Miles Cameron, Chris Humphreys, Jeremy Szal and Nick Martell will read extracts from their upcoming books, plus much more.

For the full schedule, see below:

The entire day is free, unticketed and will be available on YouTube. Access parts 1 and 2 here:
