Fantasycon

September 15th, 2009 • Posted in News |

It’s almost that time of year again, when a bunch of misfits and weirdos get together to talk until their mouths go dry, drink to try and prevent that from happening (indeed, drink the bar dry … it’s happened … I was there), then get up and eat inedible breakfast food (waiter, these aren’t sausages!), drink hot fluid laughingly called ‘tea’, move on from that crappy drink to the other hot fluid available in the hotel that’s called ‘coffee’ but most decidedly isn’t, and then that day and evening do it all again.

Ahh, Fantasycon, my favourite time of the year.  Meeting friends I haven’t seen for, sometimes, a whole year.  Talking lots.  Drinking lots.  Spending too much money on too many books that I haven’t got time enough to read.

Love it.

This year I’ll be on an 11am panel on Saturday morning (11am?  Who do these people think we are???), talking about writing weekends.  It’ll be fun, believe me.  There’ll be pictures.  Then after the banquet and award ceremony, I’m on a midnight panel on Saturday about apocalyptic fiction.

Now then.  Let me explain something.  A midnight panel is not a good idea at Fantasycon.  Especially considering some of the people I’m on with, I think it’s the panel itself that could be apocalyptic.  That’s right.  Come along to our midnight panel, and witness the ened of the world as … well, probably as we know it.

I’m also up for a British Fantasy Award for THE REACH OF CHILDREN.  Wish me luck!

Midnight panel.  Christ.

    A midday panel and a midnight panel? At least there’s plenty of lubrication time between the two, eh? 🙂
