FantasyCon 2009


Got back from FantasyCon 3 days ago, and only just recovering my faculties. Had a great time; met some fab people (although the hotel has probably featured in a few horror stories of its own). The cheap booze more than made up for it tho...

Also attended my first book launch/signing, for Morrigan Books' Dead Souls and Grants Pass. Loved it--and could definitely get used to it...

Met many great people who made me feel so welcome: Mark Deniz, Greg Ballam, Allen Ashley, Sharon Kae Reamer, Colin Harvey, Martin Roberts, Joseph D'Lacey, Danielle Serra, Lee Moan, Peter Bell, and Rebecca Lloyd--among many others! turn

Won't mention all the BFS award winners; the full list is here. My personal favourites were Tim Lebbon for best novella [The Reach of Children]; the lovely Vinnie Chong for best artist, and the even lovelier Joseph D'Lacey for best newcomer [Meat]

From con virgin to addict in one weekend. Will definitely be back next year. Now, WHCon in March...
