March 2016 ~ My Bookish Month in SFF.

In an effort to keep track of exactly what I’ve read and done (Anything geeky), I’m doing a monthly post summarising what I’ve read each month, as well as any events I’ve been to etc. This is my post for March! (Put together bit by bit over the course of the month, so I don’t spend hours on it at the end of the month!

Mancunicon 2016 – An Eastercon BEEyond!

Greetings fellow travelers of the dangerous interweb waters, thank you for your interest in my humble attendance of Mancunicon 2016, aka the Eastercon with all of the Bees! It got a lot of BUZZ! (So Sorry!) 😀

Mancunicon – aka the Eastercon with all the Bees!

Just a quick post to say… YAY I’m at Mancunicon*. I’m safely ensconced in our hotel room on the 12th floor with what I’m sure would be spectacular views of the Manchester skyline (If it wasn’t dark and cloudy) resting up (and awaiting our mysterious roommate for the weekend) in preparation for what promises to be a spectacular weekend of geekiness!

The hotel room is very swanky. We are sharing this year with a twitter friend I have never met in real life. So, hopefully N is a nice person and not a Cyborg Assassin sent from the future to kill us all and prepare the way for the takeover of the machines! 😀

I’m sure everything will go swimmingly well! 😀

Stay tuned for a blog post after the convention where I say stuff about what happened and to who! I may even tell the truth!

 

*I still keep calling the convention MaincooniCon and I completely blame Seanan McGuire for this head-canon! 😉

Dysprosium, aka EasterCon 2015.

This year I attended my first Easter Con. (Easter Con is the British Sci Fi Convention, like World Con – it moves around every year.) It was held within a literal stones throw from Heathrow Airport at the Park Inn hotel. This years EasterCon was Dysprosium, The 66th EasterCon.
