Update: no he's not, cancelled instead cos of the weather. How very English.

Michael Bywater, who I know slightly via correspondence and who has written two rather splendid books, is going to be at the Cambridge Heffer's tonight (Thursday Dec 6th) from 18:30. Why do you care? Well,

(1) he wrote Lost Worlds, IMO one of the few serious contenders for title of the Best Thing Ever Written By Anybody About Anything;

(2) he wrote Big Babies, which while not quite as brilliant as Lost Worlds is still rather splendid indeed;

(3) I understand he will be talking about and signing these things;

(4) I am told there will be free drinks.

If you live in Cam, or know people who do, go and see him or at least pass this message on or something. Just think - it's Xmas soon and you could pick up a signed copy of a book that would make a damn fine present for your dad (mine loved Lost Worlds, I understand). Also, I owe Mr Bywater a favour because I accidentally forced him to watch that awful film The Corporation, so if you do get to talk to him and only went because of my recommendation please mention the fact if you can. Accidentally making a man see The Corporation takes much making up for. Obliged as ever.
