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 warrenellis@gmail.com, 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.)
.
(warrenellis@gmail.com isn’t my main personal address, so don’t otherwise contact me on it looking for an instant response.)
.
Thanks for your time.
