Picocon

Happy New Year all. It’s that time of year when we try and find stuff to look forward to, perhaps more than ever this year, and personally I’m looking forward to Saturday 18th February, that being when Picocon will be held at Imperial College, London.

I like this casual little student con and this year they’ve asked me to come along as a Guest of Honour – again! (The first time was in 2009). I’m sharing the bill with some of my favourite writers:  Paul McAuley (I’m currently reading one of his early works, Confluence), Justina Robson (note to self: must get her latest) and Al Robertson (if you haven’t read Crashing Heaven then may I recommend it to you?).

The only slight issue is that they’ve billed my talk first, at (ulp) 9.30am. Yes, before ten in the morning. I will try to be sparkling. Or awake, at least.
