As Parmi les nomades at the Afrikabidon festival in Ardèche on the 26th.
I’ve written two more CultureLab posts. The first one troubled me a bit because, although I didn’t much like the artwork, the people were really nice. Ah, but your duty to your public, I began to tell myself, but that voice was quickly told to shut up and stop being a pompous arse. What public?

I’m not a writer, but… Barbara Campbell gave me a chance to write for her brilliant 1001 nights cast project – she’s the online Scheherazade, and has been for 779 nights now – and though the only chance to see and hear her perform it has gone, you can read it in the archive. You can also find stories there from proper writers like M. John Harrison and Lara Pawson.
