Convergence 2007, Melbourne

By the way, I'll be part of the non-writer's-guild Canberra posse attending this year's national science fiction convention in Melbourne this coming weekend. I fly in Friday early afternoon and leave late Monday, and I'm staying at the Rydges for the intervening period. Guests include Megatokyo's Fred Gallagher, writer Isobel Carmody, and... well, me. (Note: I am not an officially sanctioned guest. Possibly because the organisers thought they couldn't get me.)

It's all taking place over the Greg's Birthday Long Weekend, a public holiday which I happen to share with Her Majesty the Queen. Celebrations will occur at some point on the weekend, likely accompanied by alcohol.

If you're also attending, drop me a comment.

I too am an unofficial guest of Convergence. I figure they thought I'd demand an appearance fee. Good thing the event of year (Greg's Birthday Long Weekend) is also in town so I can just drop in to the convention.

I, on the other hand, will keep the home fires burning while we send you out as emissaries to this event south of the border.

I shall do this by setting your house on fire.

Thanks, that means a lot to me.

I'm here! In fact I'm sitting in your room, using your computer at the con to type this notice to you that I will be attending the con.
