October will probably be my busiest month this year. As writer, musician and organizer I will be involved in a number of Second Life and reallife events the dates of which have now been fixed.
First of all I’ve settled with organizer Paul Merken aka zaphod on the dates for my participation in the science fiction week in Virtuelles Köln (Virtual Cologne) that will take place in the first week of October. On Wednesday, October 3rd, starting at 21:00 local time, I will give a streamed live concert of electronic music, directly from my home studio. On Friday, October 5th, 21:00 local time, I will read from my science fiction works.
In late October I will once again participate in live events in Thorsten Küper’s and Kirsten Riehl’s steampunk location Kafé Krümelkram, this time on two evenings during the annual cultural event Festival der Liebe. On Saturday, October 20th, 21:00 local time, I will read science fiction. On Sunday, October 21st, 21:00, I will play electronic live music. Have a look at Thorsten’s or Kirsten’s webpages for a complete schedule of the festival.
On Saturday, October 6th, I will also be, along with Udo Hösterey, the host of the Science Fiction Ladies Night in Wuppertal, a group reading presenting the works of three German female sf writers, Gabriele Behrend, Nadine Boos and Gloria Manderfeld. Further information about this event, moderated by artist and writer Anne Fitsch from Wuppertal, wil be posted here soon.
