Roy Simpson helpfully sent me this link for learning General Relativity (video lectures from Stanford here).

The first book I have to review for sciencefiction.com arrived today while I was in Bristol visiting my mother and seeing The King's Speech again with her ... it's just as good second time around.
The book is Greg Bear's Halo: Cryptum and the review should appear on their site shortly (obviously once I've read the book and prepared the review).
[On my mother's council estate in Bristol there's a house where someone spits from the bedroom window (no doubt some medical condition). I was interested to observe that the stains on the wall form an upside-down Gaussian distribution. I may exhibit a photo one day if I feel brave enough to take it :-)].
