Well, things are winding down here at Punkadiddle; a couple more committments to cover a couple of titles, to which I'll try and get round as soon as I can, then it'll be time to ring down the curtain and join the bleedin choir invisible. First, though, may I direct your attention to my review of the Arthur C Clarke Award shortlist for 2012? It's just gone up at Strange Horizons, in two parts: Part 1, Part 2. The Oxford University Press used, in the early 20th-century, to promise £5 (a lot of money in those days) to anybody who could spot a typo in their edition of the King James Bible. I'd like to offer something similar for this review, but I'm afraid it would bankrupt me.
In other news: the poster at the top is for Sci-Fi London 2012, at which the winner of this year's award will be announced. I recommend this excellent jamboree to you earnestly and heartily.
