Yes, after a hiatus of some long hairy weeks, I can now semi-exclusively reveal that I shall be doing the convention-boogy thang at this year’s Eastercon. Going under the humble title, OLYMPUS 2012, the convention will be held at the Radisson Edwardian hotel at Heathrow from April 6th-9th.
My panelling duties are as follows:
Friday, 3pm: ‘Our New Alien Masters, The Markets’ (being a discussion of the bizarre and frankly otherworldly mindsets of those we have set above us to run the global economy);
Friday 7pm: ‘Geoengineering To Save The Planet’, which will be getting into some seriously groovy headspace.
There may also be a further appearance round about 9pm-ish but I`m awaiting confirmation of that from a high heid-yin who shall remain nameless. In addition, it seems likely that I`ll be doing book signing on the Sunday evening, but I’m awaiting confirmation of that too.
As is customary, I`ll be toting around a selection of posters and bookmarks for the keen, the needy and the witty. Say hello, smile, tell me a joke, win a gewgaw, its that simple.
Undoubtedly, there will be more later.
