Although the Elder Scrolls Online trailer has given me sufficient food for thought for a second stab at the MMO genre, I'm still weighing the wisdom of taking up arms against that particular sea of troubles. However, I did want to set out the various conventions and other shenanigans I'm down for this year, in case anyone wanted to grab me for a signing:
16th February 2013 — Fantasy February, Derbyshire (writing weekend, doing a section on world building with a Q&A)
1st to 3rd March 2013 — Science Fiction Weekender, Wales — UPDATE — won't be at this one, sorry.
29th March to 3rd April 2013 — EightConSquared (Eastercon 2013)
14th July 2013 — Edge Lit, Derby — may or may not be doing it this year as I've not been specifically tapped for it.
10th to 11th August 2013 - Nine Worlds Geekfest, London — this is a new one, just starting up this year. From the website it's in Kickstarter mode at the moment.
October 31st to November 3rd 2013 — the big one — the World Fantasy Convention is coming to the UK, Brighton to be precise.
And, somewhat more advance warning: 14th to 18th August 2014 is LonCon3, a.k.a. the World Science Fiction Convention, which is also landing in the UK, London this time.
On a separate tack, and mostly for reasons of personal vanity, I have at last got around to producing a bibliography that lists the various short stories I've had published, which can be found here.
