Busy Week

Sorry about the lack of bloggage recently. Yesterday and much of today are being taken up with an urgent piece of work for the day job. It makes me money, and nothing else I do does, so I have to give it priority.

Tonight I’m off to Bristol for Curtains for Feminism?, an event put on by the all-woman Hecate Theatre Company which asks, “What should theatre for women really be about?” It sounds fun anyway, but in addition I’ll be interviewing the company’s Artistic Director, Hannah-Marie Chidwick, live on Ujima Radio.

Also on tomorrow’s show I’ll be talking about designer babies with debut SF writer, Stephanie Saulter. Her novel, Gemsigns, is launching at Eastercon, but if you happen to be in Bristol we’ll be leaving some signed copies in Foyles and Blackwells tomorrow afternoon.

Thursday is also an exciting day as it will see the publication of the study on the impact of science fiction on technology by Jon Turney that I helped with. Jon talks about it here.

And after that it is Easter, so all of the UK will shut down for four days and I’ll have a chance to get on with some book production.
