…of the Atlantic. After a few stress-inducing bits the less said about which the better, preparations are basically complete, and we’re heading out for London tonight. In the highly unlikely event that I haven’t done enough plugging of my appearances, here’s a compact list of where you’ll be able to find me if you happen to be in Europe the next couple of weeks:
— I’m giving a talk about the material in the new book on Wednesday the 13th at 6:30pm in Bristol, at the Institute of Physics. I’m doing this one TED-style, with no words on the slides, so it’s both exciting and terrifying. Especially since I’m trying to make jokes about soccer to a British audience… Anyway, I think there are still seats, so come watch me fly without a net.
— I’m on program(me) at Worldcon, the most important item of which is the Kaffeeklatsch on Thursday evening,which is just me hanging out and chatting with people for an hour. I’m a little worried that basically nobody will show up for this, so if you’re going to be at the con, stop by.
— It’s too late to sign up to attend, but for completeness, I’ll list it: I’m speaking about cool atomic physics experiments at the Nordita Workshop for Science Writers on Friday the 29th.
In between those widely spaced events, we’ll be doing touristy stuff, but when and where isn’t really your business. There may be semi-regular updates here, and on other social media, or there may not. That lack of schedule is part of what makes it a vacation, after all…
