Back from Sweden (where a splendid time was enjoyed by all) to find my contributor copy of Sean Miller and Shveta Verma's collection Riffing on Strings: Creative Writing Inspired by String Theory (you can, and should, buy a copy from amazon, you know). There are essays here, stories, many poems (some of them ... I sound surprised, I know ... really good poems) and a top-drawer play by Carole Buggé. My contribution is a story called 'S-Bomb' which is all about the superstring and what happens when you cut it; but the volume really is worth the price of admission alone for Miller's marvellous introduction, which packs enormous amounts of info and insight into a small space. I'm really delighted to be a part of this project.
