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)
-Sunday 12h00 (Agora de M Spock): Meeting Aliette de Bodard (interviewed by Gérard Klein)
-Sunday 13h00: Signing session (Bookshop)
