My BristolCon schedule

The fine folks at BristolCon have put together another fantastic program 

You can find me in a variety of places during the day (mostly in the bar if past years are anything to go by):

 13:45Writing Historical Fantasy: If you want to write historical fantasy, you need to do a lot of research, and it can seem daunting. Where do you start, and when can you deviate into the realms of alternate history? What do you gain from basing your fantasy story in the real-world past?

with Pete Sutton (Mod), Jon Courtenay Grimwood, Sarah Ash, Jacey Bedford, Mike Shevdon

Modering a guest of honour no less - I'm, well,  honoured 

:00 – 18:45Writing Non-Human Characters: What are the challenges in writing aliens, robots, fairies and other non-human characters in F&SF? How do you get inside their heads and make them convincing?

with Peter Newman (Mod), Cavan Scott, Pete Sutton, Amanda Kear (Dr Bob), Kim Lakin-Smith
18:50 – 18:55Reading: Pete Sutton
Interesting to be on the other side of a panel similar to the one I modded at 9 Worlds. 

I'll be reading something - er um, best decide what soonish then - possibly a novel extract if I don't loathe it after self-editing all month!

So, apart from the siren call of the bar, there's lots of other stuff I'd like to see and am looking forward to this immensely.
