Last night I attended the Arthur C Clarke Award at the Apollo Cinema in London. I was delighted that good friend Ian R MacLeod won the award this year for his novel Song of Time. I took the opportunity to hold the award itself for a few moments, given that it’s unlikely I’ll ever win one of my own!
It was great to catch up with a few old friends and meet a few new people as well. As ever, the event itself was very slick and ran smoothly – no doubt with chaos behind the scenes.
