A (apologetically late) shout-out to anyone who’s going to be at Fantasycon 2018 in Chester this year! There’s loads of wonderful people going, and I have a feeling large quantities of alcohol will be consumed as a side-effect of this; it’s also just a really friendly, fun place to meet fellow lovers of words and geekery. I’m there this year from first thing Saturday along with a contingent of Orbit scribblers, and as well as doing a few events will just be hanging around and chatting. Please do come and say hello.
It also looks like the weekend after I’m going to be at MCM Comicon in London. Even in the few short years I’ve been going, Comicon has opened its doors up to writers in a whole new way, significantly through the efforts of a few very awesome people. If the trains from Belgium are working (there’s a whole long story there) I should be there Saturday afternoon, and again please swing by and say hi. Nothing makes scribblers happier!
