P-Con second day

Almost a week ago now, but I just wanted to note a) the blogging panel, which was fun and rambled all round the place; b) the Flann O'Brien panel, which I felt a little embarrassed about as we descended into me and Pádraig evangelising on behalf of the author, at one point doing a dialogue from the "Catechism of Cliché" series; c) Susanna being interviewed as Guest of Honour by Juliet McKenna (actually on reflection this was on Saturday not Sunday); d) me moderating quite an interesting panel on awards and award-winners with Colin Greenland, Charlie Stross, and Julian West (a late but welcome addition); e) the raffle, which saw numerous authors investing heavily in raffle tickets - see my gallery - and the closing ceremony, at which slovobooks handed over to Frank Darcy for future P-Cons. A whole bunch of us went for dinner, along with a colleague of mine who had just arrived from the Balkans.

slovobooks should feel very pleased with himself for having run a damn fine convention on literary sf. Apart from those mentioned above or in the photographs, I very much enjoyed meeting and talking to Colin Smythe, clanwilliam, gmh, sciamanna, omegar, ephiriel, captainlucy, David Stewart, Cate Murphy, Dave Lally, and Paul Kearney. And anyone else who remembers talking to me.

Just to help slovobooks, using the awesome powers of IceRocket I can provide the following comprehensive list of P-Con blog entries: mine; slovobooks himself, here, here, here, and here; Leah and John; sciamanna, briefly, here, here and here; clanwilliam here; deannawol here; natural20 here; omegar here; gothwalk here; gingereejit here; captainlucy here; Cate Murphy; and last but definitely not least pnh here. See also pictures by sciamanna here and by pnh here and here. (And mine.)

Excellent stuff. I'll send a link to it in my final P-CON III newsletter. Cate Murphy, BTW, is also mizkit, as well as being mizkit_feed. She had to run off, as her husband had just been in a car crash, but hopefully we'll see her at something else over here soon.
