Here’s my schedule for the Melbourne Writers’ Festival, which I’m looking forward to greatly. It’s always a superb occasion with so much to see and do. Hope to see you all there.

Science Fiction, Science Fact – Wednesday 28 August 2013 at 12.30 pm
‘Scott Westerfeld and Michael Pryor talk about the inventions and ideas first put forward in fiction, later proved to be fact – or wildly off the mark. Who is the better guide: scientist or novelist? Or does the future rely on both?’
