    Ineffable 2

    Once again two conventions occupied the same weekend, but this time I did have to choose between them, alas. New con on the block FIYAHCon which by all accounts was awesome, and Ineffable 2, a Good Omens convention in its…

    Futuricon/C’Monfluence

    Doing two virtual conventions the same weekend is easier when both have significant differences in timezones, like these two – Croatia and Pittsburgh respectively. Futuricon is the one I spent the most time at, given it was only an hour…

    October starts with a bang

    Two conventions this weekend; Futuricon, the Croatian Eurocon and C’Monfluence, the virtual Confluence. Neither has an art show and neither seems to be doing much with parties, but so far I’m enjoying the respective Discords and the panels seem decent.…

    I guess September happened? We left the house a few times, to Unity for beer to go, to the Bookshop for beer to go, to the Butchers for beer to go (I sense a theme). We went to Paddle and…

    Beat

    CoNZealand is all wrapped up. I sold one fan and got a nibble on another, plus a commission for a third, so not gangbusters but not bad for new territory. Didn’t do much else other than skim through the Discord…

    Days, what even are those?

    Day three of the convention, I think? Watched the Greg Broadmore guest interview, which was pretty great. Went to a Peadar Ă“ GuilĂ­n which was great, not the least because although the subject matter was dark the author is just…

    Oh, so it’s going to be that sort of Worldcon

    Went to a couple of parties, one small and informative the other packed to the second Zoom page. Did a little more last minute Exhibits stuff, bounced around a few enjoyable Discord conversations, and ate some Tim Tams. Then it…
