Kinking Reality

The talk I gave at coolest-conference-ever, Webstock, on why I choose to write fantastic fiction as a way of exploring real issues, including examples of some other really interesting storytellers interrogating where we are now from Pieter Hugo to District 9 to Die Antwoord.

I’ll be digging deeper into why story is everything in a talk at dConstruct 2012: Playing With The Future┬áin Brighton, UK, in September.

NB: I am available to give talks, but I have to fit it in between novels and screenplays and comics, so I’m very particular about what invitations I’ll accept, because it’s lost writing time.
