Me and a friend are off to the Sci-Fi Weekender
(formerly known as the SFX
Weekender) in North Wales in a couple of weeks. The website says: It's a festival of fun and activities for people who love science fiction and fantasy
which makes me all squiggly and squee.
Check out their line up
. Craig Charles! The only thing that could make that cooler is if Robert Llewellyn was there too, but I'll happily take "Dave Lister" alone. There is a Doctor Who, two actors from Game of Thrones
, loads of sci-fi and fantasy authors (who I can't wait to see!), and Brian Blessed—who I'm sure we'll hear coming from many, many miles away.
Since I rarely go anywhere on holiday, this will be my chance to get away and fully nerd-out among like-minded people. We've booked a beautiful lodge by the sea that has wi-fi, so I should be able to do some blogging from the con, providing I don't wear myself out too much on sci-fi awesomeness.
Anyone on the f-list going?
In slightly related news (well, it's fantasy related), I see Supernatural
has been renewed for a ninth season. While I'm still worried they're going to eek this show out until it's not good any more, I'll reserve judgement until I see it. And OK, yes, part of me is also super excited about more SPN. :)
