International Kittens of Mystery

Dublin: March 10/11, 2007

It's official - the flights booked, the money paid - I'm off to next year's Phoenix Convention (P-Con IV) at the Wynn's Hotel, Dublin. The convention begins on Saturday, 10th March and concludes the next day. I'll be arriving on the 9th, with camera, so all Irish kittens beware - snaps might be required for the following Kitten Picture Wednesday. I wonder if I can hold a Kitten Factor audition in the hotel?

Guests and attendees at the convention include such notables as Charlie Stross, Ken MacLeod, Kim Newman, Diane Duane, Juliet E McKenna, James P Hogan and Paul Cornell. It's my first literary convention and my first trip to Dublin so with my track record vis a vis Fate, there's a good chance that something unusual will happen. My only hope is that it won't be such that I'm not invited back the following year.
