I am hoping to attend the World Science Fiction Convention this weekend in London (LONCON 03). The event is at the ExCel and should be packed. The agenda is full of interesting items and not just for writers. It is a long time since I went to a worldcon as they are called – that was Seacon ’79 in Brighton. I haven’t been to a major convention since the 1980s so I expect much has changed – I know I have. The amount of email and the web-enabled agenda is something to behold.
I won’t promise to meet anyone – I expect to arrive, get overwhelmed, hear a few talks, interview a few people then get home phased and confused!
