Soundtrack Podcast & Other News
In other news...
I'm looking forward to a wee trip to the Czech Republic at the end of the month, where I'll be a guest at Parcon in Pilsen, along with Jeff and Ann VanderMeer, Ian R. Mcleod and Les Edwards, making this sort of the world's first New Weird convention. It sounds like it's going to be a lot of fun (there's talk of a beer spa), so if yer in the area between 22nd and 24th August, come say Hi.
In terms of other conventions there's a sorta bad news / good news situation, because unfortunately I'm going to miss WFC this year, the awesome con that's really the highlight of my year in con terms, not least because it's my only real opportunity to catch up with the good mates I've made in the States over the last couple of years. I'm really going to miss not seeing the gang this year, hanging out with the smokers like the bad kids at school, getting roaringly drunk and confusing people with my unintelligible accent and slurred rants. The good news flipside of this is that the reason I can't go is because I've been invited to Utopiales in Nantes as a guest! Which is *well* cool. It looks to be an awesome experience (and it takes me to France at a time when the Boy Kitten will be studying there.) So, yeah, that's a pretty cool reason not to be able to make it, I'd say.
