On the 25th and 26th February I'll be attending Microcon, the South West's longest-running Science Fiction and Fantasy convention.  It's organised by the University of Exeter Science Fiction Society, and has been going since 1982.

Speakers this year will include:

Jasper Fforde, author of the award winning Thursday Next novels

David A Hardy, Britain's longest-established space artist.

Anneke Wills, actor and former Doctor Who companion (Saturday only)

Richard Freeman, cryptozoologist and hunter of legendary creatures from the Mongolian Death Worm to gigantic anacondas.

Steve Green, Sci Fi journalist who will be screening some of the latest short films entered for the fantasy Delta Film Awards.

Nick Walters, Doctor Who author.

And yours truly, of course: I'll be giving a talk about my books on the Saturday, and probably appearing on a panel on the Sunday; the rest of the time I'll be hanging around listening to the other speakers and generally enjoying myself, so it would be good to see you there if you're within reach of Exeter.

Entry £12 public, £10 students, £8 members

Location: JCR, Devonshire House (Saturday), Pippa Langston Suite Cornwall House (Sunday), University of Exeter, Streatham Campus.
