I’ll be attending Swancon but on the Sunday only. The two set events I have in the diary are being a panellist on the ‘Horror: The state of the art’ at noon (the only horror specific panel on the program, but that’s cool, it’s a foothold in SF-ville) and attending the Ditmar/Tin Duck Awards ceremony in the evening.
I’m free to catch up any time for the rest of the day.
Speaking of awards ceremonies, I’m up for another three Tin Ducks. Two for short fiction (horror story “The Cutting Room” from Gratia Placenti and “Yamabushi Kaidan and the Smoke Dragon” from Fantastic Wonder Stories). Another for HorrorScope under fan production. The full (and I mean full) list of nominees is here.
This ‘Duck completes a hat trick for the adventurous Yamabushi Kaidan. The story has now been nominated for an Aurealis Award, a Ditmar Award, and a Tin Duck.
