It’s been away for a few months, but The Butcher’s Shop, is back for a one-off sci-fi special on September 10, entitled Future Human. The night will focus on the science and literature of transhumanism, the process of upgrading the human body with technology and exploring the utopian possibilities and nightmarish tensions that writers have found in transhumanism over the years.

One half of the night will be given over to a discussion of transhumanism with four special guests - Cory Doctorow (Boing Boing blog hero and author of Little Brother), Gwyneth Jones (author of the Arthur C.Clarke Award winning Bold As Love), Ian Watson (co-author of the screenplay for A.I., and a former Stanley Kubrick collaborator) and Matthew de Abaitua (author of The Red Men).
