Einstein Anthology Launch - Edinburgh, Nov 9

It's here! I am so proud to unveil the anthology of new writing inspired by Einstein's General Theory of Relativity, 'I Am Because You Are', published by Freight Books and co-edited by me and the wonderful Pippa Goldschmidt, astronomer, fiction writer and poet. As we say in our introduction, no previous knowledge - or even interest in - physics is necessary, our aim was to entertain, with great stories from some amazing writers - including Simon Barraclough, Joanna Walsh, Nick Parker, Vanessa Gebbie & Helen Sedgwick - and essays on aspects of the science from three fantastic scientists, plus two poems, just because we liked 'em.

We are officially launching the anthology on Monday 9 November at The Wash Bar in Edinburgh (see launch event page here) and would love you to come if you're nearby...If not, the book's available in paperback (free shipping) and ebook formats, and we are planning more events around the country. We're open to suggestion - science festivals, literature festivals, anything at all, do get in touch and we will round up a few of our authors!
