Novacon 41, 11th-13th November [Nov. 6th, 2011|08:23 pm]
Previous Entry Share Next Entry
I shall be at Novacon in Nottingham, 11th-13th November, with guest of honour John Meaney. Will you? Novacon is the UK's longest-established regional science fiction convention, held every autumn since 1971. http://www.novacon.org.uk/ #novacon

Here's a quotation from the programme book, describing one of the items I'll be helping to present:
    Late night on Saturday Ian Sorenen returns to the stage with 'Novacon Considered as a Helix of Semi-funny Skits'. He and his few remaining friends look at the history of Novacon and treat it with the sort of scathing contempt you'd expect. There will be fun, songs and a complete absence of veracity. But of course there will be a happy ending: you will be happy it's ended.

There's other good things going on too -- including some science talks, a guest-of-honour interview, lots of beer and Mexican food. Oh, and there will be several authors, editors, other writers and the like stood around in the bar eagerly hoping some fan will come along and buy them a pint.

I'm well known for bad sex at conventions, it's true, but I've never subjected a Novacon to bad sex. You could ask around, I'm sure it's available from someone.

We will be there. It feels this morning like I should add the proviso "if I get through this week", but that's just the dratted train delays talking...

As you know, I'll be at the ZZ9 AGM in Croydon. Can't be bothered to go up down back up and back down again over one weekend.
