Lauren Beukes and Joey Hi-Fi at the British Library

Off to London tomorrow to see Lauren Beukes and Joey Hi-Fi at the British Library Out of this World exhibition. Lauren is passing through on her way to WorldCon in Reno, Nevada, and this is a rare opportunity to see her and Zoo City cover artist Joey together. Should be a fun day, and I even don’t mind taking the slow train down, as I should be able to get some writing done.

The even is being organised by the Arthur C. Clarke Award and review site Pornokitsch, and there’s more info over at Angry Robot.

Meanwhile, I’ve had a good couple of days on Night Pictures. I didn’t post stats for yesterday, so here’s a combined readout that takes me up to the end of this week.
