So, that was Fantasycon, and very entertaining it was too. Quite a blur, to be honest. The best bit was putting some faces to names (including the gents above, Chris Teague from Pendragon and Steven Savile), which I spent most of Friday evening doing, aided by large amounts of John Smiths. I’d hate to start reeling off names, as I’d inevitably miss somebody, who would inevitably be offended, but hello to you all, and thanks for the welcome.
On Saturday I popped in and out of panels and the dealer’s room, and picked up some splendid titles, including Pendragon’s stunning looking new antho New Writings in the Fantastic, and on Sunday I flew home. A good weekend, all in – and congratulations to all the award winners. Choices lost out to the Elastic Book of Music, but Paul Finch’s Kid won in the best novella category, so congratulations both to Paul and Chris.
So now Choices has not only been reviewed well all over the place, it’s also the only place you can currently read the British Fantasy Award winning novella Kid, among others. So, you know, that’s sort of a hint. That you should buy it. You see what I did there?
