Octocon 2013

This weekend I am staffing at Octocon. Octocon is the National Irish Science Fiction Convention which has been running for the last 23 years.

I am looking forward to seeing the guests of honor this year, they are Richard K. Morgan, who wrote the most interesting scifi trilogy I have read this year the first of which Altered Carbon won the Philp K Dick award; and Gail Simone who’s work on Wonder Woman and Bat Girl at DC comics has been nothing short of legendary.

Also the panels have a very interesting range of discussions and panelists. This will be another busy but awesome weekend.
