Here's a reminder that I'll be speaking at MicroCon at the University of Exeter on the 25th and 26th of this month. And as if you needed another reason to go, I've just learned that one of the Guests of Honour is to be the legendary space artist and SF illustrator David A. Hardy, who has been painting images of our solar system and beyond since 1954. Here's a link to his website. I remember poring over David's pictures in books that I read as a schoolboy, and I'm very much looking forward to his presentation.
