I have finally bought space on the Flickr website, and finally-finally uploaded some of my photographs. At the moment, they are mostly pictures taken at various fantasy/horror/SF literary events. Anyway, go and have a look ... here.

The BBC is to broadcast a number of SF/fantasy programmes on Radios 3, 4 and 7. The short season includes adaptations of works by H G Wells, J G Ballard and Arthur C Clarke. Full details can be found here.
Fantasycon 2009 has confirmed its three Guests of Honour: Jasper Fforde, Brian Clemens and Gail Z Martin. And of course, I've already mentioned that the Master of Ceremonies is Ian Watson. Fantasycon 2009 is scheduled for 18-20 September at the Britannia Hotel in Nottingham. You can find more information here.

As this picture shows, parts of Staffordshire suffered a dusting of snow this past week or two. Fortunately, the roads were not badly affected, and getting to work was never a problem. Pity.
Ceramics classes again. Needless to say, I'm still making things with very little resemblance to vases and bowls. Here are examples of recent creations. Both are in stoneware, which means that they are suitable for use in the garden. I must own up and say that the sculpture of the brown Green Man was based on a mould that Jan made. She, in fact, sculpted nine of these Green Men to my one (I got bored quickly).
