Any lovers of fantasy fiction looking for something to do this weekend? You could take a trip down to Fantasycon in sunny Brighton, where Guests of Honour will include John Ajvide Lindqvist, Gwyneth Jones, Chris Paolini, the great Brian Aldiss, and also that lovely Joe Abercrombie, all MCd by Sarah Pinborough, and with a veritable galaxy of other significant genre figures in attendance.
I’ll be around, probably haunting the bar mostly, from Friday afternoon through til Sunday afternoon, but specifically:
Friday 5-6pm: Welcome to Fantasycon Party
Friday 8-9.30pm, Russell Room: Mass Signing
Saturday 10-11am, Russell Room: Trends in Fantasy Fiction Panel
Saturday 8-9pm, Russell Room: Guest of Honour Interview by James Barclay
Sunday 1pm: Banquet and British Fantasy Awards where I will, as it happens, be presenting the award for Best Collection.
I shall look forward to maybe seeing some of you there…
