Google+ event, 27th September

While I surface from work on ON THE STEEL BREEZE, just a word to say that I'll be participating in a three-way Google+ hangout with Iain M Banks and Peter F Hamilton. The event takes place next week, on Thursday 27th September. Here's some information:

Now, as far as I understand it, this is not a public event in the sense that you can show up in London when we do it. But via the medium of Google+ you can still participate. In fact some people are already posting questions for the panel in advance of the event.

Iain and Peter are always good company, so I'm sure we'll have a blast and get some good discussions going.

Two things

Couple of items worth mentioning - I've just done a lengthy podcast interview with, which is available here, together with a useful transcript:

Thank you to John Joseph Adams and David Barr Kirtley for giving me the opportunity to talk.

Elsewhere, there is now a fan forum for all things to do with my work, with a strong focus on the Revelation Space universe. The forum is nothing to do with me, but I wish it well and thank the instigators for taking the initiative. I suspect it would not be creatively healthy for me to spend time lurking around the place, so I shall strive not to do so unless specifically requested. The people behind this forum are also trying to gauge interest in a one-day convention for 2013, and to that end there is talk of an informal fan meet-up later in 2012, more of which you can find on the forum itself. Due to pressure of work there's little chance of me getting up to London for that, but if the 2013 event takes flight, I would do my best to make an appearance.
