I'll be appearing at Olympus, the 2012 British Eastercon (in London) from the 6th to the 9th of April.
If you're going there, my program items are below the cut:
Our new alien masters: The markets (Friday, 3pm)
Humans no longer rule the world. Our new overlords live in the markets and are the faceless mindless algorithmic trading systems and the psychopaths chosen by corporations to run them. A discussion ...
Writers' Bloc presents: FANtasia (Saturday, 8pm)
What happens when fans find themselves in skiffy stories? Members of Edinburgh's leading spoken-word performance collective dish the dirt in their own inimitable style.
Writing The Rapture of the Nerds (Sunday, 1pm)
Cory Doctorow and Charlie Stross discuss their new collaborative novel, The Rapture of the Nerds, and how and why they came to write it.
Mass author signing (Sunday, 8pm — provisional)
From Fan to Pro (Monday, 9pm)
Fandom has always produced its fair share of authors, editors and journalists who have managed to move from the world of room parties and conventions to living the dream of being paid to work in the science fiction. How did they do this? Do they still enjoy attending conventions, and more importantly do they still think of themselves as fans?
That's a fairly light program. Which means you should have plenty of opportunities to find me at large in the dealer room, real ale bar, or fan lounge if you want to talk. See you around!
