Swansea and Cardiff with Peter Hamilton

On Monday September 3rd, Peter Hamilton and I will be doing two joint events in the Swansea and Cardiff branches of Waterstones.

The Swansea event (which appears not to be ticketed) takes place at noon:

The Cardiff event (ticketed) takes place in the evening, beginning at 6.30.

I'm between new books at the moment, but Peter will be promoting his excellent new novel Salvation, so come along and hear what he (and I) have to say about life, the universe and everything. We'll be delighted to see everyone in these two fine cities.



  1. Peter F is one guy I'd love to have a chin wag with. He sounds like a very erudite fellow. Much like yourself Al when I was fortunate to meet you years ago.

    Will this be recorded or available online anywhere? I'd love to listen in from the US!

    Also, I just found your blog after being a big fan for about 10 years. What a lovely little slice of internet! In the event you read this, thank you so much for writing 'Diamond Dogs.' It was one of the first sci-fi books I ever read and it inspired me a great deal.

    You're the man, keep up the good work!

    1. Hi Christopher, no, not recorded. You might find a few pictures on social media if you look around, though. Glad you liked DD!

  3. Looking forward to see both in Edinburgh this week

  4. Peter is continuing his tour with Stephen Baxter, so that's who you'll be getting in Edinburgh! Enjoy.

  5. Blue Remembered Earth. How had I forgotten they watched Cricket whilst drunk on the moon. I love it
