Journey to outer space from Edinburgh this August

Lots of rather wonderful outer-space themed events on at the Edinburgh festivals this year.

Here’s one that I’ve been involved in – Transmission‘s immersive theatrical experience is running throughout August, and listen to their podcasts to get a taster.

The Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas (organised by Beltane) is running a series of stand-up comedy/discussion events and I’m doing one (with Matjaz Vidmar) about outer space and whether it’s a Good Idea for humans to boldly go there. What’s to stop us destroying alien life? What rules apply in outer space? Is human space travel more science fiction than science fact? (On August 5th at 1:50pm in the New Town Theatre.)

And I’m chairing one of a series of events at the Book Festival programmed by Ken MacLeod about science fiction: come and listen to him, Charlie Stross, Nalo Hopkinson and Ada Palmer talk about hopeful futures on 18 August at 6:30pm.
