Fantasycon 2007

September 25, 2007 by Richard Wright in Journal, Life, Writing

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?

    Good to finally meet you, Rick… but you mean you were around on Saturday as well? never saw you after the big drunken evening πŸ™‚ It was a lot of fun though, even managed to win some tat in the raffle which made it all the way back to Sweden.

    Heh – tried to avoid the bar after the Friday, and got hit by the muse late Saturday afternoon. Popped into the raffle briefly, then decided further beer was not the way to go πŸ˜‰

    But yeah, very good to meet you indeed.

    I was on lemonade from Saturday onwards… scary amount of alcohol in the bloodstream for a man who doesn’t drink.

    Back to London this week to talk to the tv people then work work work… no rest for the hacks πŸ™‚

    Sometimes, it just has to be done, ill effects or no. Good luck with the TV meet – can’t wait to see how it works out.

    Nice double-chin I’ve got… time to get swimming again!

    Good to meet you Rick, and hopefully we’ll be seeing you again next year?
