At the Dublin WorldCon

Today is the official start of Dublin2019, this year’s WorldCon.

I’m thrilled to be back in Dublin, which I still think of as my second home – and also looking forward so much to meeting all the people and going to panel discussions and lectures.

I’m moderating two panels, one on Friday and one on Saturday. The Friday one is about Rob Anderson and telling a story through fencing, and the Saturday panel is about fantastic beasts in children’s literature.

Czech translation of The Bohemian Incident

A beautiful cover as well.

The Czech version is published by Mystery Press

It’s a massive experience. I arrive Thursday afternoon as I had other commitments before the con which meant I missed the first one and a half days, but I still got so much out from the con during the three and a half days I was there.
