Good news for all those of you who attended last year's inaugural "Space, Time, Machine & Monster
" event at Glamorgan University. I've just heard from the Welsh National Literature Promotion Agency that another event is on the cards for 2009. Dates and speakers have yet to be confirmed, but if it's anything like last year's, it'll be worth the trip.
The BFS had quite a presence (albeit indirectly), with the likes of Tim Lebbon, Gary Greenwood, Stephen Volk and Steve Lockley in attendance. Jasper Fforde and Andrew Cartmel were also there, and proved to be big crowd pleasers.
The organisers managed to cram the day full with a great variety of panels, film shows and talks, and attendance was pretty good, with a healthy cross-section of South Wales society stepping in out of the cold.
One point worthy of note - the London Sci-Fi convention got a lot of publicity there. Maybe we could do something similar for the BFS/FantasyCon at this year's event?
More news as and when I get it.
