Hello and welcome to this week’s (temporarily) minimalist version of the Robot Round-Up!

[Okay, so normally between us we take a bit of time to introduce the links, maybe extract a few choice quote-snippets, that sort of thing. But what with the SFX Weekender taking place last weekend and the inevitable post-Con lurgi taking its toll today (all together now: awwwwww, he’s got the man-flu!) I’ve just rolled two weeks’ worth of links up into a single post. And in order to save time, eyeball-strain and keyboard-wear, I’ve just gone with the basics. Your patience and understanding is most appreciated. D]

What passes for normal service will resume next week.
