I’ll be attending my first ever Bristolcon on the 26th September.  I’ve heard nothing but good things about the event so I’m really excited to attend.
More importantly, I’m also going to be on a number of panels!

10:00 – 10:45 Crossing the Genre Borders
They’re here, they’re respectable, and they’re taking our awards. These days more and more LitFic writers are dabbling in SF&F. This year’s Clarke Award shortlist contained several books marketed as mainstream fiction, rather than genre. Should we welcome these genre-crashers with open arms, or view them with suspicion?
with Alex Davis (Mod), Adrian Faulkner, Cheryl Morgan, Dan Pawley and Sophie Sparham
 
10:00 – 10:55 Reading
I’ve yet to decide what exactly I’ll be reading but rest assured this will be the first time I’ve ever read anything from my current rewrite-in-progress, Black As Knight
 
16:00 – 16:45 Fantastic Felonies & Criminal Crossovers
Crime is booming on the bookshelves at the moment. Are spec fic writers tapping into this trend and if so, who? When crime writing meets F&SF, is it Murder Most Magical?
with Adrian Faulkner (Mod), Emma Newman, Kate Coe, Lor Graham and Paul Cornell
 
All these events will be held in Room 2
 
Be sure to come along and join in the fun.  Details on the event can be found at http://www.bristolcon.org
