San Antonio

This is meant to be the most restful part of the trip - six nights in San Antonio with no gigs to do, and no real responsibilities except to pass on regards from various people to Damien Broderick and Barbara Lamar, which we've dutifully done.

Last night, we all went out for an excellent Mexican meal. Jenny and I have been swimming in the warm pool. Somewhere amongst all that, I completed an article on the representation of technoscience in science fiction, for Indian academic Amit Sarwal (to be included in a book Amit is editing, to be published in India next year).

We hung out with Damien and Barbara this afternoon, and will have more chance to catch up with them over the next few days. We've already seen the formidable collection of Damien's recent/current publications. He's been incredibly productive of late (and of course he also has an essay in 50 Voices of Disbelief: Why We Are Atheists , which will be in book stores almost before you know it).
