    Going to a Con? Let us know.

    Sorry I have been AWOL for ages. The edit from hell on my last book and a rather slow start (me - not the story!) on my new one...

    Anyway - I'm now gearing up for the exciting fantasmagoria that is Worldcon in Glasgow!!!! After 6 months of sitting on my own, staring at my computer, I am REALLY looking forward to this one.

    I know we've mentioned this in the dim and distant - but, who else is attending? Come and say "hi" to me - oh, go on, go on, go on....

    I am doing 2 panels & 1 reading:

    Panel 1: Saturday 10am - 'British Landscape and the Fantastic' - this is moderated by Peter F. Hamilton and Susanna Clarke is on it (of "Johnathan Strange..." fame)

    Sunday: My reading - 12 noon. Reading from my new book, 'Swarmthief's Dance.'

    Panel 2: Monday 11am - 'Everything you need to know about Scotland if you want to set your fiction here!' This is more of an "infomercial" type of panel - cliches to avoid etc. Should be a fun one!

    I also hope to be at a panel for "Nova Scotia" which is a wonderful anthology of Scottish SFF writers - but the time hasn't been arranged yet...

    So LOADS of opportunity to yell - "Hey, Funky!!!!"

    Seeya!

    Ah, funk, you need to give them your real name again, so they know which author you are.

    I believe Gary Wassner is going for a few days, and James Barclay may be there. I'm unfortunately not, but I think again it would be great if SFFWorld could try to do something -- a party, lounge or something -- for members and member authors to help promote all of you and the site.

    Yep, I'm there, funky so hope to see you. Got a reading, a panel on writing the second book in a trilogy (Terry Brooks on that one too ) and a kaffeeklatsch (sp?) which should all be fun. Plenty of time in the bar and around the convention plus catching up with Gary W. Should be a good one.

    Any who are there, t'would be great to see you.

    Question Who's going to Dragon*Con?

    We're leaving the kids behind and the wifey and I are heading to Atlanta for Dragon*Con Labor Day weekend. Anyone going to be there? Anyone been there before. I've seen smaller cons, but not really sure what to expect at a con this big. Couldn't even get into either of the hosting hotels... had to get reservations across the street @ the Hilton!

    Hi, I've set up this thread of two merged 'con' threads and so anyone who wants to discuss where they are going and what they are looking forward to can. As usual no advertising please

    I'll be at Worldcon, probably feeling rather lost as this will be my first. I'm wondering if anyone at all will turn up to my reading, because I doubt many people will know of me, let alone want to hear me read!

    Anyway, if anyone out there wants to say hi, don't hesitate to stop me and do so. I'll be at least as lost as you are, if not more so...

    Does anyone have a website for U.S. conventions? I am interested in smaller conventions.

    Search engines are great!

    Yahoo Directory

    However, I don't know of sites dedicated to listing and tracking Cons... I've seen them for Renaissance Festivals that list them all and show attendence and dates and links to sites. But not for Cons.

    Smile Dream to go to One

    My dream has always to go to one but have never gotten the chance to go to one. I'm hoping one day I can go to the one in San Diego one day.
