I’ve got a fair bit of travelling ahead of me, which means lots of new friends to meet, and plenty of opportunities for folk to say hello.
19th – 21st October, I’ll be at Octocon in Dublin.
My prospective panels will be as follows:
‘Being Human’ and discussing how far can individuals be changed (mutants, cyborgs etc) before they can no longer be considered human.
‘Hand to Hand Combat’, discussing among other things the fantasy of the One Heroic Punch.
Being a Wikipedia Editor
‘Finding the Write Balance’, discussing what we authors do to complement and supplement our writing lives.
27th October, I’ll be at Bristolcon.
I’m running my workshop on Making Every Word Count, on the use of detail in your fiction. For those wondering if they’ve already attended this elsewhere, it’s ‘The Misadventures of Sally’. If that means nothing to you, and you’re keen to take part, sign up via the Bristolcon website.
I’ll also be on a panel discussing ‘Where have all the thin books gone?’ Given the stacks currently in my living room, I think I have at least one answer…
1st – 4th November, I’ll be at the World Fantasy Convention, Baltimore USA.
I’m there first and foremost in my capacity as a judge for this year’s World Fantasy Awards, but I’ll naturally be happy to chat about anything and everything SFFH related.
it’s going to be a busy few weeks 🙂
