Anybody thinking of heading along to this year's Eastercon?  Follycon in Harrogate 30th March-2nd April. The guests of Honour will be Kieron Gillen, Christina Lake, Nnedi Okorafor and Kim Stanley Robinson.

I'll be there, probably at the bar :)

Thanks! :)  I'm sure it will go fine, and so far the weather looks like it will be a little wet but otherwise fine.

It went well! I was a bit nervous as my first panel began but it got easier as it went along. Public speaking is not something I ever liked but I guess it is an acquired skill.
There were loads of fascinating panels on the programme, way too many to list.

Other than the usual issues of con-food being overpriced, slow and none-too-good, it was great! I got to hang out with my fellow Robots and the Angry Robot team, and got to chat with wonderful people like Laura Lam, Ed McDonald, RJ Barker and Anna Smith Spark :)
