Had an incredibly good day at the THRILLING WONDER STORIES symposium at the Architectural Association. You have no idea. Just a wonderful time. Thanks again to Geoff and Liam for bringing me in, and thanks to the audience for not walking out the minute I said "It’s time for a big sweaty Englishman to drone at you about history for half an hour." Also, for not throwing me out when I got to the bit about science fiction’s subversion of context and the horrifying potentials of sf porn.
Also thanks to the guys from ICON magazine for making the interview painless. Looking forward to seeing how that turns out: me yelling about archaeoacoustics and dead bodies in the walls, Francois Roche just being a freaky genius, and Geoff Manaugh trying to find a point of sanity in the middle.
Normal service probably won’t resume here until Monday, as I think my brain is just about tapped out.
