I'm Angus, your host. I started this podcast while studying Msc Publishing and working for minimum wage. I was living at the top of the Royal Mile, just by Edinburgh Castle. There are some cheap, eccentric flats there, believe it or not, and some of them were once occupied by literati.
At the end of the academic year I moved back to my mum's house (I am very cool) to complete my MSc Dissertation on Chinese Sci-fi (I am very, very cool). It was called Sci-fi, Sendoutism, Reform and Opening: Translated Chinese Science Fiction's Journey to the West (told you I was cool). Message me if you would like to read it.
Since then I found remote work helping to publish translated Chinese Fiction, while living first in a cabin then the suburbs of Scotland's east coast. As I revise this sentence, in June 2021, a move to the north of England for a full time job is in the works.
