Sofia Science Festival

The Sofia Science Festival, organized chiefly by the British Council in Bulgaria, is approaching, so here is a list of the program items I’ll be participating in (plus two Monday events organized by the university):

Sat. May 12

Sun. May 13

Mon. May 14

  • “Where to seek life in the solar system?” (16:15-17:30, Faculty of Physics)
  • Grace&Gravity event (19:30-21:00, Observatory, Department of Astronomy)

I’m looking forward to my stay in Sofia, meeting local scientists and writers, enjoying the festival and seeing a bit of Bulgaria – it’s going to be my first time in the country, which has a rich history and many natural wonders, too.

In other news, my newest book, Czech short story collection titled Světy za obzorem (Worlds Beyond The Horizon), is out! It contains seventeen short stories. There was a question about translation. Luckily, English-speaking readers already had a chance to read some of the stories – e.g. “Becoming”, “Dancing An Elegy, His Own”, “Étude for An Extraordinary Mind”, and “The Symphony of Ice and Dust”.

Big thanks to the British Council for inviting me to the festival, and to the Czech Centres for arranging my journey! My program can be accessed also here.
