This week, the Cheltenham Science festival has been on and, perhaps a little surprisingly, Alan Moore has been one of the guest directors. Yes, that would be the Alan Moore who, a little rashly (and apparently drunkenly,) announced at his fortieth birthday bash that henceforth he would be a magician. So why would he be at a science festival?

Well, tonight he held two talks and it seems that he has a fascination with science and it inspires and informs his work.
In the first talk, he and Iain Sinclair talked about landscape, geography, journeying and how it provides inspiration. In the second, Moore talked about science and magic and where they meet in words and literature. Throughout, Moore referred to his current endeavour, a book entitled `Jerusalem' (already over half-a-million words and still unfinished) and how it was a scientific idea filtered through magic that led to an idea of it. This is magic as defined by Moore, not some spells-and-potions nonsense. His version comes across as an idea generator/mind expander/sounding board sort of thing.
Moore is a good and interesting speaker and comes across as a nice person as well.

Anyway, onto the point of the post. Tomorrow they are filming an edition of `The Infinite Monkey Cage', a Radio 4 show hosted by Robin Ince and Brian Cox, and Alan Moore is to be one of the guests. It can be heard on BBC Radio 4 on Monday 20 June at 4.30pm and on Tuesday 21 June at 11pm.
Oh, and don't blame me if there are last minute changes and he isn't on it. I'm only going on what I was told. :)
