Octo Judge

In a time of widespread poverty, inequality and political unrest, protests and violence meet the first Judges as they hit the street to enforce the Law. The cure, it’s clear, is far worse than the disease. The ‘Judges’ novellas allow for an unprecedented opportunity to delve into the history of this future fictional police state.

Our Guest of Honour Michael Carroll is joined by fellow authors Maura McHugh and Joseph Elliott-Coleman to discuss what goes into their work in making gripping entertainment out of a world falling apart.

Moderator: James Bacon

Panelists: Michael Carroll (GOH), Joseph Elliott-Coleman, Maura McHugh
