Thanks for blogging about the Literature Festival! We’ve got a small strand dedicated to Science Fiction as well because of China – we’re calling it Future Fictions.
The festival was really good in 2010, and this year is set to be another good one. Visitors usually stay in accommodation Cheltenham to make sure that they don’t miss the going’s on!
