Fame at Last!

Last night's BBC news had a section on the London congestion charges, Apparently this included a shot of the street where I work, just entering the zone, in which a car and a motorbike drive down the street.

Apparently it's me on the motorbike. Needless to say this wasn't an evening when I watched the BBC news.

I will sign autographs for a small fee...

A Bit of Good News

Forgot to mention the reason why I'm feeling cheerful. Heard last night that the print version of George Griffith's "The Angel of the Revolution" (based on the e-text I edited a couple of years ago) is going ahead. Should be out relatively soon since it's being produced by a print-on-demand process. It'll be coming from Heliograph Inc., who published Forgotten Futures on paper for a while, and should be available from Amazon, games stores, etc.

I've made an Angel of the Revolution icon in honour of it, from the cover of the 1907 paperback (which was unfortunately a heavily cut version of the story).

Later edit:
The icon below is a link to the story and its sequel with accompanying games material. Illustrations are small to save bandwidth
