The Early Days of a Better Nation

Monday, November 20, 2006


I might be on television this evening, in part two of the three-part series The Martians and Us, BBC 4 at 9 p.m. (If not, then maybe in part three, next week.) Last week all the talking heads were interviewed in their book-lined homes. I was interviewed sitting on a camp-bed in an army barracks. (Thought I'd mention that just in case anyone thinks that's where I live.) The interview was mainly about the British SF themes of catastrophe and dystopia, so it's likewise far removed from my usual scientifictional interests - which are, as is known, all about space habitats and world ships upon whose vast beautiful interior landscapes hop myriads of cute fluffy bunnies, which get eaten.
