Transworld 60th Birthday Party

Yes, it’s a church. Deconsecrated recently. Apparently, the neighbours are not happy. Robert Plant held his album launch here just the other day. Nonetheless, it was a venue with gravitas for such an important milestone for my publisher.

Calling Harlan Ellison Readers

Moviegrrl has let me know about the proposed sale of a collection of rare, signed Harlan Ellison work.
