CYMERA is Scotland's Festival of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Writing. This year, the programme is fully online, with authors talks, workshops and a spectacular opening event which asks: did Scotland ever have its own top-secret space programme?
Subjects covered include speculative fiction, as well as more practical tips from those in publishing for aspiring writers. The Book Quiz is also back for the third year in a row, open to team of up to five with a Grand Prize of...well...being smug about the impressive amount of knowledge you have about sci fi, fantasy and horror literature.
CYMERA is the brainchild of Ann Landmann, who set up the festival to serve a gap in the book festival market. 2021 will mark the third festival which, when such things could happen, was held the Pleasance and featured 81 authors, along with a popular dealer's hall featuring local creators.
