SFX Weekender

This time next week I should be in Prestatyn, along with 4000 other geeks, for the SFX Weekender. It’s going to be awesome.

As well as the mandatory hanging out in the bar (or bars? I’m hoping there’s more than one or there are going to be queues) I’m on a panel on Saturday at noon, in the distinguished company of Peter F Hamilton, Al Reynolds, Michael Cobley, Dan Abnett and Aaron Dembski-Bowden. The panel is on Space Opera (of course).

I’m also doing a signing session on the Forbidden Planet stall; this is currently scheduled for 10am on the Saturday, although I’m hoping it might be moved to a slightly later time, on the grounds that I’m Not Good At Mornings.

    Dammit!!! I was going to be games demoing at that one. “Sadly” Having a job again gets in the way (taking days off so early would be awkward. Ah well have a good one.

      I’ll do my best, though I’m not entirely sure what to expect, not having been to any previous SFX Weekenders. Maybe you’ll make it next year?

        My memories of the first one are largely of mold in the bedrooms. So skipped the next one. Staying off site this time, will be aiming to be at the panel, sounds like a good line up!
