I talk quite chirpily to Jonathan Strahan & Gary K Wolfe in Episode 147 of the Coode Street Podcast. Various ground is covered, some of it real, most of it less so; also tantalising reference to enigmas like Empty Space, Climbers and “Cave & Julia” (all three of which are drawing mixed & sometimes comical responses at Amazon: go there, have a laugh, but most importantly, buy something). In similar news, I’ll be reading and talking at Lancaster Literary Festival on either the 16th or 17th of October; and at a warm-up event for the Conference on Weird Fiction at the Horse Hospital in Bloomsbury on 7th November. Details to follow. (Anyone who’d like to pay me to read in similar circumstances, or who’d simply prefer to give me this modified Buell S1 motorcycle so I can keep it in my lounge & worship it as Art, should leave a message below or tweet me @mjohnharrison.)

Thanx, anzanhoshin. Fixed (I hope).
I have been touting Light all over the American side of Facebook, urging my more literary, but Sci fy bent friends to discover you. Once they read Light, they will of course proceed to Nova Swing and Empty Space.
I am just completely amazed at how unread you seem to be in the USA.
I have to add, that it would be terrific if more of your work was downloadable on E Books and Kindle.
I am currently living in Athens and downloading books onto my IPhone.
I wish you knew me, we are the same age and I was at San Francisco State Creative writing Department when you were publishing your first stories.
So, I am a fan, but exist as Lindaura Glamoura on Facebook, Ivy and the Eaters in MySpace and my Flash Fiction Blog, http://fictionvictimtoo.blogspot.com
I am too lazy to move to WordPress…
I just ordered Climbers from Amazon, finally finished Pepys..
The Kefahuchi Tract is an extreme challenge to game design (not met by, eg, this: http://mashable.com/2013/06/18/e3-evr-game/)
If ‘weird’ needs a warm-up, is it really really weird?
It is clearly a work of art, though we’ll trust that you won’t fill the petrol tank if storing it in your lounge.
I tweeted this question but am repeating it here where I know how to type.
You mention thinking of the Kefahuchi Trilogy as the Empty Space Trilogy (did you say “trinity”?) instead. And that you would like to see it all published as one volume. I agree about both of these points.
One question though, would you still regard it as having three parts? Or would you rework the structure?
“A Cloud of Sentient X Rays. It’s Not Science Fiction. Because It’s Not.”
The world as lived and recorded by that person could be unintentionally interesting as a short story. Perhaps as recorded by someone with less understanding of science but more of fiction but done as an interview with that first person done in the third person.
