Out Today

It's a collection of new stories about Artificial Intelligence, edited by the inestimable Peter Crowther. (For what it's worth, I wrote the introduction.)

UPDATE: Can't find a TOC anywhere on t'web, and I tidied away the copies of the stories I was given, but authors include Stephen Baxter, Brian Stableford, Eric Brown, James Lovegrave, Adam Roberts, Tony Ballantyne, Steven Utley, Marly Youmans, Robert Reed, Paul Di Filippo, Patrick O'Leary, Garry Kilworth, Keith Brooke, Ian Watson, and Chris Roberson. A pretty cool bunch.

Your Moment Of Zen

At Christmas, two versions of Leonard Cohen's 'Hallelujah' occupied the first and second place in the UK singles chart. The number one slot was taken by X-Factor winner Alexandra Burke; in second place, thanks to an internet campaign, was the lovely and haunting version by Jeff Buckley (Cohen's version came in a number 36). But more lovely than even Jeff Buckley's version of 'Hallelujah' is this song by his father, Tim Buckley, first aired on, of all places, The Monkees TV show (that's Micky Dolenz's voice introducing him).

Now I really must get back to work...
