Eastercon Panels: A Writer's Gotta Do What A Writer's Gotta Do – Updated

As some of you might know, Eastercon is the UK national SF convention held yearly over the Easter weekend at a hotel/convention centre somewhere in Britain. Last year it was held at the Radisson hotel at Heathrow (dont get me started), but this year it is being held in Bradford, slap bang in the Midlands, making it within fairly easy reach.

This year I am on four panels;

 ‘SF music in popular culture’ on Friday at 7pm;

‘Depictions of music in SF&F literature and dramatic features’ on Sunday at 12:30pm;

‘The David Gemmell Awards’ on Sunday at 7pm;

‘Writers, artists and fans discuss their musical inspiration’ on the Sunday at 8pm.

Must admit that I’m looking forward to all the music panels, and especially to the David Gemmell panel as well.

And of course, there will be plenty of programming to take in, usually 2 or 3 streams of it, as well as the BSFA Awards on the Saturday night, various author signings (hopefully including your humble scrivener), as well as rumours of a curry-quest to take place at some secret location during the weekend. All promises to be a splendid beano!

    Dear Mr. Cobley,

    FYI I ordered your new book from Amazon and they said it would be delivered by March 25th. However just got another email saying it won’t be delivered until April 8th-21st. I take this as a good sign as presumably it means that Orbit can’t print ‘em fast enough and as a result Amazon, like the butcher who backed into his bacon slicer, are getting behind in their orders.

    Drinks are definitely on you,
