ArmadaCon Guest of Honour

I’m pleased to announce that I will be a Guest of Honour at next year’s ArmadaCon, held on the 2nd and 3rd of November at the Future Inns hotel in Plymouth. I’ve attended ArmadaCon before and it’s a casual convention, with a bit of a South West slant (though anyone from anywhere is of course […]

My BristolCon schedule

Although I don’t get to many conventions these days I always enjoy Bristolcon. It’s ‘small but perfectly formed’ and also not too far to travel. I’m on two panels this Saturday: 11am – The Ethics of a Fictional War. Do authors have a responsibility to honour the horrors of war, or is a fictional war […]

Eastercon

After some years absence – for reasons both obvious and not – I was glad to make it to Eastercon this year, even if it was just for the one day. I was naughty, and ‘bar-conned’ it, though I may have snuck into the con itself for an hour or so, in order to spend […]

FantasyCon and BristolCon

Conventions are like buses. Nothing for months then – hey! – two in a row. I’m at both FantasyCon and BristolCon this year, though quite lightly programmed. At FantasyCon, on Saturday 20th October I’ll be doing a reading and appearing on a panel on writing for video-games, at 5pm and 7pm respectively (probably – exact […]

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 […]

BristolCon

It’s that time of year again, when I get to attend one of my favourite conventions. BristolCon is on next Saturday in, well, Bristol. My own small part in it is as follows: 11am – Guest of Honour Interview. No, they haven’t asked me to be GoH again, but one of this year’s GoHs, Ken […]

My Satellite 5 schedule

Here’s what I’ll be up to next weekend in Glasgow: Saturday 10:30am – Opening Ceremony, during which I’m going to attempt something I’ve never done before. If you want to find out what, you’ll have to come along. Saturday 11am – Kaffeklatch; or rather, in my case Teaklatch. Saturday 3:30pm – Guest of Honour slot; […]

Satellite 5 – not long now!

In just over a week I’ll be heading up to Glasgow to be the author guest of honour at Satellite 5. I’m really looking forward to it (except the bit where I have to get up at sparrow-fart to catch the plane). If you’re anywhere in the vicinity, do join me: as well as my […]

Bristolcon rocks!

I’m really looking forward to being one of the Guests of Honour at Bristolcon on Saturday 26th. My fellow Guests will be artist Chris Moore, and Jasper Fforde (note to self: do not fan-girl Jaspar Fforde), and there will be many other¬†writers, artists and generally interesting people there too. Here’s what I’m up to: 10am […]

Satellite 5

As anyone who was at Eastercon probably already knows (thanks to lots of lovely posters, everywhere), Satellite 5 have been kind enough to invite me to be their author Guest of Honour, up in Glasgow in May 2016. Although I’ve been to both Glasgow Worldcons I’ve failed to get to any of the smaller cons […]
