Bill appears Tuesday morning on BBC World Service Radio

Do you get BBC World Service Radio in your area? If so, tune in Tuesday morning to "World Update" to catch a feature story for which Bill was interviewed.

Over the weekend, Bill was interviewed by BBC reporter Tara Gadomski for a story about the play "Heddatron," running now in New York City. "Heddatron" is a postmodern twist on Ibsen's "Hedda Gabler," and it purports to be among the first plays to feature real robots in its cast.

The New York Times has been gushing all over "Heddatron," both in its review and in a feature article about the robots, but Bill was less than blown away by the play himself. He reviewed "Heddatron" for Science Fiction Weekly last week, and it was pretty much his dissenting opinion that brought the BBC around to talk to him for their story, in his capacity both as a science fiction writer and as a computer programmer.

Hear "World Update" in New York City on WNYC 820 AM, from 5:00 a.m. to 6:00 a.m. For stations and times elsewhere worldwide, click here.
