In just a couple of weeks’ time the 2019 Worldcon will be upon us and I’ll be joining the hordes hopping across the Irish Sea to Dublin to take part in five brimming days of deep and wonderful nerdery. As always I’m always up for a sit down and a chat so if you’re there and you see me wandering about grab me and we’ll have a cuppa and a gab.
Alternatively, I’m also taking part in the programme so here’s where you can definitely find me.

(Last time I had an autographing session at a Worldcon I was sitting next to Robin Hobb and George RR Martin. I’m not saying I felt inadequate, but let me tell you I treasured every single smiling face that popped in to say hi…)
