You may have noticed that I’m in the process of updating my website http://www.tonyballantyne.com.
Following the success of this blog, I’ve now installed WordPress on my webserver, and I’m currently in the process of transferring new content across. Once this is complete I’ll get to work on the theme. Bearing in mind WordPress is free, the least I can do for them is to plug their services. Follow the link at the bottom of this page to find out more.
I’d apologise for the inconvenience, but let’s face it, if the unavailability of an SF author’s website is the biggest incovenience you face over the next few days, you really do need to get out more.

In order to help promote Sci-fi London, http://www.sci-fi-london.com/ I’ve been given two free tickets to give away to anyone who wants to attend my panel on Robots and Reality, http://www.sci-fi-london.com/festival/2009/programme/lab/literature/robots-and-reality.php
The first two people who email me at firstname.lastname@example.org will get the tickets.
As an extra incentive, anyone who buys tickets for any of the literary panels over the weekend can have two for the price of one if they use the words AUTHOR BLOG when they book by telephone on 020 7451 9944. This offer is good until Friday 1st May.
Hope to see you there!

If you have a subscription to Nature Magazine, you might want to look out for my short story TAKEAWAY, appearing in the 19th March edition.
If you don’t have a subscription, you can view the article for a one off payment of $32. To be honest, you would be better waiting for an anthology of my stories, if I ever get the time to do something about producing one.

This years Alt.Fiction has been cancelled, or at least postponed until 2010. That’s a great shame, this small but excellently run Derby based event is one of my favourites. Apparently there may be some smaller events coming at the end of 2009. I hope so!
There is going to be a website detailing future progress. I’ll post the link here as soon as I get it.
