This is basically a big old plug for Redemption 09, which is where Loli and I will be next February.
Redemption is a science fiction convention run by the nice people who ran last year’s Eastercon, as described here, and which was fantastic.
It’s 55 quid for the ticket, and sharing a room will set you back £32.50 a night, breakfast included. Cheaper if you want to get a zed-bed, so it won’t break the bank.
What you get for your money is a weekend of talks, games, workshops, quizzes, discussions, panels and fun. Guests include Doctor Who writer Paul Cornell, among others.
It’s on from the 20th-22nd of February 2009 – so if you like writing and have a vague interest in science fiction, or vice versa, I’ll hope to see you there.
