Charles Stross Signing Tour

September 27th, 2007 | people I know

My old mate Charlie Stross, one of the best science fiction novelists alive today, is being shipped out of Edinburgh on an October western-US signing tour. Seattle, Portland and San Francisco. All details are here. I urge those of you in these areas to go and see him, and certainly to buy a book (I personally recommend ACCELERANDO and SINGULARITY SKY). Also, you should throw panties at him.

A Return To Podcasting

September 25th, 2007 | brainjuice

I’ve decided to start podcasting mixtapes of music released freely on to the net by new, unsigned and indie bands — again. (I seem to do this once every year or two — piloted a third run earlier in the year but the hosting shat itself).
Whenever I did this before, the audience seemed to be between 1500 and 5000 people.
So if you?re making music yourself, and you?d like me to listen to your stuff towards including it in a podcast, email an mp3, ideally 128kbps or above, to, along with a link to your website. Obviously, I won?t be able to include everything I receive in whatever podcast I finally make, but everything will get listened to. (Please DON’T send me other people’s music just because you really like it.)
( isn’t my main personal address, so don’t otherwise contact me on it looking for an instant response.)
Thanks for your time.
