P-Con second day

Almost a week ago now, but I just wanted to note a) the blogging panel, which was fun and rambled all round the place; b) the Flann O’Brien panel, which I felt a little embarrassed about as we descended into me and Pádraig evangelising on behalf of the author, at one point doing a dialogue from the “Catechism of Cliché” series; c) Susanna being interviewed as Guest of Honour by Juliet McKenna (actually on reflection this was on Saturday not Sunday); d) me moderating quite an interesting panel on awards and award-winners with Colin Greenland, Charlie Stross, and Julian West (a late but welcome addition); e) the raffle, which saw numerous authors investing heavily in raffle tickets – see my gallery – and the closing ceremony, at which handed over to Frank Darcy for future P-Cons. A whole bunch of us went for dinner, along with a colleague of mine who had just arrived from the Balkans.

should feel very pleased with himself for having run a damn fine convention on literary sf. Apart from those mentioned above or in the photographs, I very much enjoyed meeting and talking to Colin Smythe, , , , , , , David Stewart, Cate Murphy, Dave Lally, and Paul Kearney. And anyone else who remembers talking to me.
