Heinlein at Eastercon

Every Easter weekend a section of British fandom meets in a hotel location somewhere in Britain. This year was Harrogate, at The Majestic, with author guests Kim Stanley Robinson and Nnedi Okorafor (both of whom secured Hugo nominations this week).

The committee invited me to give a talk on Robert Heinlein and despite Kim Stanley Robinson being on a panel directly opposite, it invited a healthy crowd and seemed to go down well. For those of you who don't know me, this is me looking super serious and talking about Heinlein's prose. I think Bob would have approved of the ginger hair, even if he didn't much like critics. 

I'll get the talk edited and on to this site soonish (at least by the end of the month).
