Radio show details,

Just thought I'd let you guys know that we'll be playing an interview with Robert Rankin, talking about his latest book "The Mechanical Messiah", on #TheGeekShow, a 2-hour Geek Culture program, as part of our Steampunk Special, and Lincoln Asylum coverage.

The show goes out on Monday, 6-8pm, on 104.5FM in the Teesside area, and livestreamed & podcasted, with links from thegeekshow.blog.com
There will also be a prize giveaway for a signed copy of Raven Dane's new book "The Techronomicon", and expensive Geeky things (DVDs and T-Shirts).
So if anyone is on twitter, they can win by some kind of tweeting #TheGeekShow when we announce how to participate in our giveaway on the show itself. (We also tweet at TGS_TheGeekShow, and I'm plugging all manner of steampunk over the course of the weekend as a build-up to the show)

Does anyone else think Noel Fielding would make a perfect Rizla? Someone please make a TV or film version of Brightonomicon & Retromancer, thanks

Brightonomicon is my favourite book of Rankin's.

The audio CDs are good too, though the funnies with Fange's hats got left out, as it's a visual joke.
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.
