Dougal Dixon, author of the wonderful After Man and someone whom I very much want to have to the Weird Weekend at some point wrote to me this week:
"Did you know of an EU-funded competition to devise and design animals that will exist in Europe in 100 million years' time? Nor did I. I only found out about it when I was asked to travel to Vienna to be on the judging panel. I cannot find out anything about it on any of the logical web-sites.
So it is hardly surprising that the closing date for entries has been put back for want of sufficient response. The closing date is now 25th May, and I (along with everybody else involved) have been asked to spread the word".
