The SFF (Science Fiction, Fantasy, Speculative Fiction) Collective is a group that meets regularly to discuss topics relating to SFF books and share book recommendations across the genre.

Gothic horror, gothic romance, gothic space opera? In this session we discuss what exactly constitutes the gothic – its origins, its proliferation in the 19th century, and its relevance today.
