It's official: I'm to be Guest of Honour at next year's Novacon.
One cold Friday night in 1978, I wandered into my first con - Novacon 8, in the Holiday Inn, Birmingham. Anne McCaffrey was GoH. By 2a.m, it was just me'n'Annie propping up the bar: a turning point in my life.
Somehow 32 years have passed since then - 33 by next November. (Remind me to write faster.)
So you can understand that for me Novacon 41 will be hugely significant and an immense honour. I'll pull out all the stops to entertain everyone who's there. Please do come!
