    I haven't been to that con so I wouldn't be of much help, sorry.

    Do you have Dymocks in NZ? They seem to have supported it quite well.
    Anyway hope you cans ecure a copy, let me know if you can't.

    Marrianne, I think Russell Kirkpatrick (map man, HC voyager's 2004 new writer) has been to the last two NZ natcons. He comes over here for cons regularly so you may have met him. Email him anyway, he's fairly chatty.

    They had their 2005 con in March in Wellington but the next one is in Auckland: Conclave 2006

    Thanks Bren,

    I wasn't going to because of Glasgow. But now I'm not making it to Glasgow so I think I will try and get to Melbourne.

    Hard to resist Neil gaiman and Poppy Z Brite.

    I'm not going to Glasgow. I just got back from England and after two days in an economy seat making like an origami human, my legs are killing me. I'm currently vowing never to fly again and convincing my brother to move to the southern hemisphere.

    I'm only tall in my legs and only averagely tall but they don't fit in a Qantas plane... I'm just off to check for DVT since I have other risk factors and too much pain.

    How on earth do you fit in plane seats, Marrianne?

    poor bren,
    I do sympathise.

    i don't fit in seats at all! My last trip to Sydney was hell. Back row of the plane, in the middle seat, person in front puts their seat back. My knees were raw and my temper foul and that was only a one hour flight!!

    I guess knowing what a nightmare it is the one consolation for not going to UK. I was concerned about recovering from the flight in time to actually enjoy the con.

    Hope the dvt thing is ok. wise to check it out.

    mebbee- I hope, see you in Melbourne.

    In typical Borders fashion, book 2 has appeared on their shelves, and a computer-search brings up nothing on book 1 (Nylon Angel)! I bought number 2 because I know that if I don't, I'll never be able to find it again, and I have been told that I have to order book 1 on a weekday and not a weekend!

    Do you absolutely have to read 'em in order, or is book 2 a semi-stand-alone from book 1?

    Hi there BOP,
    how frustrating!
    If you can wait it is probably better. Book 2 will carry more weight if NA is read first otherwise you'll probably feel some of the characters are too mysterious. Also NA plot is quite complex.

    I could send you NA from here but Borders will proabably be quicker.
    Let me know what you think

    ps and thanks for persevering.

    Well, considering that I devoured both Nylon Angel & Code Noir in a couple of days, you could say that I might have enjoyed them. I don't suppose the third book is gonna make it to NZ shores any time soon? *hopeful look*

    Hi BOP,

    that's great!

    Sorry, I'm afraid I've used up all my author copies with giveaways at Thylacon. But you could try ordering from Amazon. Otherwise it's in around September.

    best
