A Cunning Plan
Inventing the next twenty years, strategic foresight, fictional futurism and English rural magic: Warren Ellis attempts to convince you that they are all pretty much the same thing, and why it was very important that some people used to stalk around village hedgerows at night wearing iron goggles.
Warren Ellis is a writer. He is not the violinist in the Bad Seeds.
Some of the things he has written have pictures in them, like Transmetropolitan, Planetary, and The Authority. Some of the things he has written are constructed entirely from words, like Crooked Little Vein and the best-selling Gun Machine.
Gun Machine is currently being developed for television. His book Red was adapted for the big screen in 2010. We shan’t hold it against him.
Here he is talking about The Edge Of Reality at the Improving Reality gathering here in Brighton two years ago.
