FantasyCon

This time next week I’ll be at FantasyCon in York. Aside from hanging out in the bar and meeting up with friends – especially those I missed in the glorious madness of Loncon – I’ll be on the following programme items, both on Saturday the 6th:

3.00pm – Reading. (Note sure what yet, as the slots are quite short in order to fit everyone in.)

4.00pm – SFF and Politics. There is nothing more glorious than to defeat your enemy by transparent democratic process, and hear the lamentation of the other sides’ whips. Can SFF make political process dramatic and heroic, or will it always come down scheming viziers and noble warriors? With Lizzie Barrett, Fox Meadows, Catherine Mann, Scott Andrews.  (This should be fun, as it’s not a subject I’ve done a panel on before but is one which interests me; democracy by assassination anyone?)

For the record, this will be a two hat convention.
