Tomorrow and Saturday I will be attending Eastercon, which is at the Radisson Edwardian Hotel, Heathrow.

I’m really looking forward to this one – the same event at this same spot two years ago was great, with stacks of attendees and a really positive vibe. Hopefully it will be packed again this time around.

I’ll be on the following panel: Saturday, 14.00-15.00, Connaught, “Writers and the Web”. Some dude called Joe Abercrombie will be on that one, too.

I will be around the venue for the rest of the day – either in the bar area (I think there were two last year), the dealer’s room, or somewhere in between. I will also – hopefully – be Twittering my whereabouts. Come and say hello if you’re around. I won’t bite unless cornered.

(Oh, and the frightened-looking lady to my left will be my girlfriend attending her first SF convention.)

  1. Brilliant. See you there.

  2. I’m there on the Sunday…D’OH!

  3. Anychance of video? Get the old iPhone video camera rolling so we may witness the Ambercombie.v.Sykes showdown?

  4. Daniel – that’s a possibility, and it all hinges on whether or not I remember to do so.

  5. Was going on Sunday, then I looked at the timetable…didn’t go.
