Niall: Got you Argosy 2, New Worlds didn't have the Interzones you wanted though. Also, we need to find out how to pronounce Live Without A Net as I've got it.

More importantly to the 'stalt, nutty found an ICA flyer mentioning this:
Also being shown will be a preview screening of Rogue Farm, the first adult animation film to be commissioned in the style of Japanese anime by a UK broadcaster and film body. It's a 24-minute science-fiction drama based on a short story by Nebula Award-winning sci-fi writer Charles Stross. Co-director Garry Marshall will introduce the film at 1.30pm.
JINGS! We going then?

\o/

New Worlds didn't have the Interzones you wanted though.

Arsebumpoo. I don't know where I'm going to get them from, then.

Also, we need to find out how to pronounce Live Without A Net as I've got it.

Read the Meaney novella. It's ace.

JINGS! We going then?

YES. Book tickets. Book them NOW.

FP used to have them when it was on New Oxford St. Unhelpfully, Transreal in Edinburgh often has a few issues. You could try asking nutty to have a look if you really want them baaaad.

YES. Book tickets. Book them NOW.

Waiting to see who wants to go first. But not for long.

It's not so much that I want them, it's that I want the book sdn is going to send me in exchange. Baaaad.

Fine, fine...

'Rogue Farm' is the short in Live Without A Net, right?

I really hope you have to get nutty something weird and unlikely in order to trade for the Interzones but you have to give the owner of that thing something strange and obscure and so on in a Zelda-like trading arc.

Correct. Still not read it.

Just read it at lunchtime. The plot's fairly light and obvious but it builds a charming picture of country-life in a post-(non-Vingean-)Singularity :D

There should be the chance for some very pretty visuals.

Cool. Can you bring the anthology on saturday, so I can sit in a corner for fifteen minutes and read it? :)

Dude! Do you even need to ask? I second Niall's cry of "Book tickets now!"

Well, we are. It's Ros' Buffy party that Saturday. But we should be able to fit this in beforehand.

And yes, I think Tom's an ICA member. I'm not, though.

Allow me to restate: I thought people might be busy doing something more important than Stross anime :P

I can't concieve of such a thing but Wrongheads with their dangerous thoughts might be WRONGHEADED in some fashion about it.
