That’s me on the ‘Food in Fantasy’ panel, alongside Esther Saxey, Ed Cox, and the especially entertaining Gail Carriger. (Photo stolen shamelessly from the J for Jetpack Twitter account.)
This was the first time I’d attended Nine Worlds, which is now in its second year. I have to say it was one of the most positive, inclusive and relaxed genre conventions I’ve ever been to. In fact, I’d say it was easily the most well-organised, thoughtful and well-planned conventions. It was great to see a new generation of SFF geeks in attendance, too.
I could only make it for one day, but next year I’ll almost certainly try to make it there for two days.
