I’m sure you’re sick of hearing people say “it’s a weird time!” so I’ll spare you any of those sorts of comments.
Instead, here’s my wife’s video of me reading at the launch of issue four of Matters Journal on 14th March. It’s an excerpt of an essay I wrote called ‘What I learned about the future from my students’ about sci-fi, dystopian and apocalyptic stories, climate change, robots and what the future might look like. Enjoy!
The launch was wonderful and the last public event I attended before the lockdown. It’s quite nice to watch the video and remember the feeling of sharing words and wine with others!
