    Poop! Wednesday is the main event and I have to go to uni. I would skip lectures but work is paying and I wouldn't be able to keep quiet about meeting you Mike. I wonder how generous my boss is feeling... :scratch:

      You're probably too refined, Mike. :)
      _"For an eternity Allard was alone in an icy limbo where all the colours were bright and sharp and comfortless.
      _For another eternity Allard swam through seas without end, all green and cool and deep, where distorted creatures drifted, sometimes attacking him.
      _And then, at last, he had reached the real world – the world he had created, where he was God and could create or destroy whatever he wished.
      _He was supremely powerful. He told planets to destroy themselves, and they did. He created suns. Beautiful women flocked to be his. Of all men, he was the mightiest. Of all gods, he was the greatest."

        It would be nice to be a chaos engineer instead of a mechanical one.

              Good point - starts at seven, doors into the theatre itself normally open about 6.45 or so, although that can be a bit flexible. There is a bar within the building, which normally starts serving about 6.15 or thereabouts, and where we'll be selling copies of the book from that time.

              Hope that helps

                Yus, ta. I was wondering if time off work would be required.

                Hope to meet up with many of you there!

                  Will one of you visitors snap lots of pictures and post them?

                  Remember to tell Mike your board alias, so he knows who you really are.
                  The cat spread its wings and flew high into the air, hovering to keep pace with them as they moved cautiously toward the city. Then, as they climbed over the rubble of what had once been a gateway and began to make their way through piles of weed-grown masonry, the cat flew to the squat building with the yellow dome upon its roof. It flew twice around the dome and then came back to settle on Jhary's shoulder. - The King of the Swords

                    Hey, please can I do the RADA Chair thing? I'm not Taffy, but I wear glasses and have more hair and I'm a proper journalist and author and interviewer and lecturer and everything! AND I've read your books! AND...

                    (Collapses into sad middle-aged-fanboy-shaped heap. Seriously, though. Website with online CV on request.)

                    AND I share your birthday, along with (digs out Saturday's Guardian) Christina Aguilera, Cardinal Archbishop Jozef Glemp, Brad Pitt, Keith Richards, Steven Spielberg, Anne Wood (creator of the Teletubbies) and both children of the conductor of the English Chamber Choir, born on the same day a couple of years apart - now that's time management! : ) - to name but a phew. So to borrow a phrase coined by my daughter, happy 'Birthday Boxing Day'!

                    Just realised - no MM in the Guardian's birthday list! Bleedin' outrage, guv - one decade they dish out prizes, the next they forget who you are! :( Or as an occasional contributor, perhaps they count you as staff?!

                      I plan on ordering my ticket for RADA tomorrow.

                      Then I just have to pick the right moment to tell my wife I'm disappearing down to London on the 18th.

                        Hey, Mike - any advance on the Manchester possibility? I take it the Radio Cafe thing for Radio Scotland will be a link from London rather than you in the Edinburgh studio? :(

                          Ordered my ticket from Blackwell's for the RADA event today over the phone. Very easy process, the guy I spoke to said they were expecting about 200 people to turn up. He asked how I'd heard about the event since they'd only just started advertising it, so I was able to give the web site a quick plug. :D

                          Haven't had a chance to break the news to my S.O. yet, but I hope to see many of you there if possible. :up:

                            Great news. I just got off the phone with Alan Moore. He's going to be the other half of the 'Conversation' at the Vanbrugh. He's doing very well and working on his new novel, by the way. Says he's been looking forward to Vengeance, too, so this at least will score him a free copy!
                            This should be a great event. Anyone who heard Alan and Brian Eno on the radio earlier this year will know just how good he is. Can't wait! Iain, incidentally, will be doing his gig not very far away and says he might try to pop in.
                            Sorry, Zax...
                            Re. birthday announcements. You generally need to employ a publicist to get that sort of thing into birthdays (at least for the first time) and so far I've resisted doing that! Generally, a pretty good bunch of co-birthdays, eh ? My daughters, Sophie and Katie, almost coincided within a year, but Kate made it a couple of days late on the 5th of Sept. At one point, when I was married to Jill, I had Sophie on the 3rd, Jill on the 4th and Kate on the 5th, not to mention almost every other birthday and anniversary (apart from mine) in September. Swamped by Virgos.
                            Yes, I'll be doing Scotland radio cafe from Broadcasting House, sadly. But I'm still trying to get that gig on the following Saturday at Waterstone's, Manchester. No news back yet. The wisdom in the publishing and bookselling world these days is that bookshop gigs aren't cost-efficient. Not my experience, but there you go.
                            Had a bad moment this morning when a BBC researcher rang to ask 'How did you first become interested in science fiction and fantasy ?'
                            Things improved after that... She didn't even ask me where I got my ideas.
