On tuesday I'm attending an event to meet a sci-fi writer called Adam Roberts.I have never heard of him before I saw the email tonight and thought someone here might know something about him.He has apparently written many parody books including :The Soddit; The McAtrix; The Sellamillion; Star Warped; The Va Dinci Cod; Doctor Whom: ET Shoots and Leaves; and The Dragon with the Girl Tattoo.

I'd appriciate anything that you can tell me about him.
Proof that L-Space exists in this universe

Fact 1:Heavier things distort time and space more
Fact 2:A page with ink on it is heavier than an unprinted page
Conclusion:A book distorts time and space more than blank papers
