EightSquaredConOver Easter I will be enjoying myself at EightSquaredCon in Bradford.


EightSquaredCon is this years' instalment of the annual Eastercon, as the National SF Convention is colloquially known due to the weekend when it takes place.

If you enjoy Science Fiction and its associated genres (and would be reading this if you didn't?), and don't have plans for Easter then I'd recommend that you consider joining the Convention to meet up with like-minded people and meet some of the perpetrators of said genres (I would expect most of the current crop of British SF authors, plus a few from outside our borders, to be in attendance); links to the programme and the membership rates are below.
