Near and Distant Futures


It’s nearly here! It’s Tuesday morning as I write this and by this time on Thursday I’ll be in Incheon Airport transferring to the second of the three flights I need to take to get from Nagoya to Aberdeen without setting foot in the Tenth Circle of Hell (Heathrow). In less than a week Silma Hill will be officially amongst you. The readings and signings are Aberdeen (June 29th), Edinburgh (July 8th) and Glasgow (July 9th). It was my intention to return to all the places that welcomed me so warmly last time but logistics and a couple of personal issues meant limiting myself to Scotland. Sorry!

In the meantime, here’s an interview I did for the Japan Times with science fiction writer Taiyo Fujii about his debut English translation, Gene Mapper.
