Neal Asher interview

Those of you who are sci-fi fans may have encountered the books of Neal Asher. Neal blogs and is also a fairly regular commenter at The Kitchen (and was kind enough to send me one of his books a few months ago).

Neal has done an interview with Sci-Fi-London website, which you can watch should you so desire. It is interesting to hear an author talking about how he creates his books, and the characters and worlds therein.

Gove's legacy?

Michael Gove has, quite honourably, said that it was right for Theresa may to sack him as a minister...
