eeeee!!!!! charles stross in melbourne

I’m still waiting to buy Charles Stross’ latest novel, and to fill the interim bought one of Neal Stephenson‘s first works, I imagine I’m one lazy afternoon away from eviscerating as the first third barely withstood a very somnambulistic 2am doze/read last night following some hours spent swilling port and using my applied Photoshop skills for various nihilistic ends. At $AU54 for the hardback publication though, I’m feeling conflicting desires.

There was none of that this morning when I read his blog and found out he’ll be in Melbourne in a couple of weeks at Continuum 4, yes I am a geek for sci-fi. I’m so excited I probably won’t even leave the house when he’s in town.
