BSFA Open Meeting, this Wednesday

By Adam Roberts | March 22, 2009
Categories: Events and Appearances

I'm one of (I believe) several guests appearing at the next BSFA Open Meeting: 25 March 2009, The Antelope tavern, 22 Eaton Terrace, London, SW1W 8EZ. People will be in the bar from 5ish. The upstairs room itself opens at 6pm onward, whereupon there will be a bunch of fascinating free-and-frank exchange of views concerning, but doubtless not limited to, the BSFA Award shortlist (concerning which I have expatiated, online, here, here, here and here). Nearest Tube: Sloane Square. Come. Do.

    I like your theory regarding "that would be me" being a way of bridging the uncertainty gap. It's quite true that people do that sort of thing all the time. In my professional environment I have to be careful not to dumb down my certainty out of politeness, in order to maintain my authority.

    I think there's certainly something there; although Bianca Steele (in that same thread) puts it more elegantly.
