I will be attending the worldcon in Helsinki, Finland. More details as I have them.
Glad to announce that on March 23rd I’ll be interviewed by the fabulous Ed Cox at The Artillery Arms (102 Bunhill Row, London EC1Y 8ND), as part of the BSFA London meetings. (and ahead of my stint as GoH at Mancunicon)
Start Time: 19:00, room open from 6pm, fans gathering in the bar downstairs from 5pm onwards (I’ll likely be in the bar around 5pm because I’m arriving pretty early in London).
This is a free event, and you don’t have to be a member of the BSFA to take part (non-members are welcome, in fact!). The interview will start at 7 pm.
There will be a raffle (£1 for five tickets), with a selection of sf novels as prizes. I’m also quite happy to sign anything that has my name in it (ok, not blank checks or IOUs, but you get the idea!)
Just a quick note that I’ll be dropping by Forbidden Planet in London (179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London WC2H 8JR) to sign some stuff Saturday 6th February at 15:30.
So, a. there will be signed stock from Saturday afternoon onwards, and b. I’ll be hanging out a bit afterwards to check out new releases, so if you have spare Bodard stuff lying around and happen to be in London I’ll be quite happy to sign your books ^-^
So… will be briefly in the UK (London/Manchester) this weekend, for the Gollancz Festival.
My full schedule (and the face-to-face schedule of all events) is here: note that both Manchester on Friday and London on Saturday have sold out, but there are still spots for the Sunday event. Though sadly I can’t do the mass signing on Sunday, as I have to get home.
There’s also an online event if you can’t make it to any of these: the schedule is below (and yeah, some of us will be
waving trying to look smart in the bus Friday afternoon 🙂 )
I will be a guest at this year’s Utopiales in Nantes. I will be there Friday Oct 30-Sunday Nov 1st (with the H and snakelet in tow!)
Schedule is as follows:
-Friday 16h00: Signing session (bookshop). I’m not too sure what I’ll actually be signing other than issues of Galaxies, but hey. I have postcards!
-Saturday 17h00: Signing session (bookshop)
-Sunday 10h30 (Scène Shayol): The Changing Realities of European Science Fiction (Francesco Verso, Paul Carta, Christopher Priest, Anthony Vallat, Jérôme Vincent)
