If any of you readers in the UK find yourself with an empty diary for April 26th, and you are able to get to Derby, then you could do far worse than go along to Alt.Fiction, a one-day genre convention.
There'll be discussion panels, Q&A sessions, readings, author signings, workshops and plenty of drinks in the bar. Nice.
I'll be there, so feel free to say hello. If you recognise me. Which, given that I've never posted a picture of myself on this blog, is pretty unlikely. Perhaps I'll have to wear a special costume so I stand out. Suggestions on a postcard...
