Bodies from other worlds; bodies from this world otherwise. Alien orgies, speculative sex, fantasies of gender and space travel. Utopian and post-apocalyptic.
 
The pleasures and perils of the multiverse, the alternate timeline, the time travel soap opera and suddenly without warning you are your own father. Sci-fi is not just escape but experimentation.
 
Cum experiment with us!
 
To co-opt a unnecessarily misogynistic series branding:
IT’S ABOUT TIME! NBR finally goes SCIFI. With special guest curator Dr Johanna Linsley!
