Sci-Fi Month 2016: Giveaway of Aliens by Jim Al-Khalili


This post is part of Sci-Fi Month 2016, a month long event to celebrate science fiction hosted by myself and Over the Effing Rainbow. You can view the schedule here, follow the event on Twitter via the official @SciFiMonth Twitter account, or with the hashtag #RRSciFiMonth.


Today I’m offering the chance for three of my readers (UK only, sorry!) to win a brand new shiny copy of Aliens by Jim Al-Khalili, kindly provided by Profile Books.

Here’s a description of the book from the Profile Books website:

It’s the biggest question we’ve ever faced, one that has fascinated generations of humans: do aliens exist? If they did, what would they look like? How would they think? And what would it mean for us if we found them?

Here, Professor Jim Al-Khalili blasts off in search of answers. Featuring twenty pieces by top scientists and experts in the field including Martin Rees, Ian Stewart and Adam Rutherford, Aliens covers every aspect of the subject, from alien consciousness to the neuroscience behind alien abductions. And along the way he’ll cover science fiction, the probability of us finding extra-terrestrial life, and whether recently-discovered exoplanets might support life.

Engaging, authoritative and filled with scientific insights fresh from the far edges of the galaxy, Aliens is the perfect book for anyone who has ever looked up into the starry sky and wondered: are we alone?

Or why not hear more from the man himself?

If you’d like to enter the giveaway, just use the Rafflecopter below! This giveaway will remain open until 12th December 2016, and don’t forget you can share the tweet via the Rafflecopter every day for an extra entry!

  1. Too often this fascinating question is tackled without taking into account the *science* of it, so this book is indeed a welcome one to try and find some answers to The Question. Very intriguing, thanks for sharing! πŸ™‚

  2. Yes! Thanks for this, I’ve been eyeing up this book!

    As for life out there, just thinking about the infinite possibilities of space, anything could be out there!

  3. Hell yeah!…after all we are all made up of stardust so why shouldn’t the universe be teeming with life? They might not look like us but ‘life finds a way’ πŸ˜‰

  4. Why not? We are here, so the possibility of other life forms being out there is not that crazy. Whether we will ever get to meet any of them though, well……

  5. Yes!! When I was younger I saw something very very high up in the sky at night that was just hovering there then after about a minute it shot off and was gone. I am certain there is something out there
