The World Fantasy Convention was good, and as I paced myself a little better than normal, was not completely exhausting. It was nice to be back in a (rather windy) Brighton.
Last in my current convention marathon is Novacon, this weekend in Nottingham. I’m on two programme items there:
Saturday 4.30pm: ‘SF Characters in Search of an Author‘ or what happens to your character when the reader gets involved and how you feel about it. This might cover something as simple as readers having a completely different idea about your character than you do, through editors and film-makers wanting to change things, all the way to fanfic and slash.
Saturday 7.30pm: SFF QI. Self-explanatory really. (Unless you’re not from the UK, and have never heard of the marvellous, smart and bizarre quiz show that is QI.)
I’m currently reading – and thoroughly enjoying – Novacon Guest of Honour Jo Walton’s wonderful Among Others. I may turn into a bit of a fangirl when we meet.
