FantasyCon 2009 is taking place between 18th-20th September (next weekend) in the Britannia Hotel, Nottingham. It is the annual bash for the British Fantasy Society where awards will be awarded, books will be launched, beer will be drunk and nets will be worked. This year’s guests of honour are Gail Z. Martin, Jasper Fjorde and Brian Clemens, and the MC is Ian Watson, but you won’t be able to move without bumping into authors and publishers. It is highly recommended to anyone interested in the field. The dealers’ room will be packed as well (I particularly recommend the TTA Press and Screaming Dreams stalls, of course, and Waterstone’s has also been known to carry the odd intriguing title as well).
I won’t be there (because it is career suicide for me to appear in public) but there should be a strong Glaswegian contingent in attendance.
