  1. Looks like a great few days. 🙂

    A direct link, or info on place and time would have been nice, but was easy to find on Google.

    Unfortunately, looks like all the weekend passes with accomodation are already booked out, though, which is a shame, otherwise would have been seriously tempted.

  2. On behalf of all the Angry Robot authors who will not be appearing at the SFX Weekender because they’re stuck at work in the miles-from-bloody-anywhere-of-literary-worth Western Australia: Siiiiiigghhhh……
