Fiction to Future: The Science of Science Fiction

Tomorrow evening (Thursday 14 April) at 7 p.m. I'll be at this Science Festival event at the Pleasance, with Iain M. Banks and Charles Stross, chaired by Andrew J. Wilson. Tickets are £3, available from the site, over the counter at Blackwell's (which is sponsoring the event), and on the door.

I should add that at 6 p.m. there's a science fiction poetry event at the Scottish Poetry Library, which is, um, about ten minutes' very fast and mostly uphill walk to the Pleasance, so if you're young and/or fit and fancy both events, well ... Tickets for this one are £5/£3 and available from the Library.

Speaking of science and poetry, the SPL has a podcast (here and here) of interviews on the subject conducted by its Reader in Residence, Ryan Van Winkle, with me and with Tracey S. Rosenberg. (Tracey makes a much livelier job of it than I did.)
