The Tate Modern TH2058 exhbition and me

Aliya is back from Wales and has found out that I, along with fellow ex-Serendipitist Katy Wimhurst, am one of the winners of the Tate Modern TH2058 competition, inspired by the current installation in the Turbine Hall. There were several judges for the competition, including Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, whose work the exhibition comprises of, and author Jeff Noon.

The six winning stories will be recorded as an audiobook read by Christopher Eccleston and available for download. Big thanks to Jenni Fagan for the intial heads-up about the competition and thanks to JupiterSF for publishing the story in the first place, way back when in issue 8 (they're now on 23 and it's a quarterly publication).

Here's the full list of stories. Congratulations to the other winners.

Fantastic news, Neil - huge congratulations!

Any chance of getting this on CD? My mum loves Christopher Eccleston though she is a luddite when it comes down to it - downloading stuff is a mystery to her!!

Thanks all. Matt, I should know more in a week or so. I doubt there'll be a CD, but all the stories will be available to download from Tate Modern, so you could burn a disc from those.
