Well I've decided that we need to get our noggins together for this year's convention and so anyone who's interested in contributing to the Strangely Fascinating panel (scurrilously based on QI but about Discworld) can come in here and have a 'thought shower' about any aspect of getting this scintillating show on the road! You don't have to be going to the convention to help out, but if you are you might get roped into helping out 'backstage' on the night!
Nothing too much set in stone yet but our resident quizzer/question master combo of Chris Boote and Pat Harkin will likely be back in the saddle again and Eelco (conventions Programming Head Honcho) is going to try and get Jacqueline Simpson and/or Stephen Briggs and/or Rob and/or Rhianna for the panel.
The theme of the convention hasn't been finalised but we know that it's likely going to be based in 'modern' Ankh Morpork this time around and with Raising Steam still 'new' I'm guessing that Steampunk might be in order and UU and The Watch will be much in evidence?
So anyone who's read RS - we'll be wanting some questions loosely to do with that and as I haven't read it yet (and won't until the paperback's out - I refuse to shell out that much money ) experts are required. I'm currently memorising The Compleat Ankh-Morpork too but any other ideas on the question format including 'Nobody Knows' and General Ignorance' will be more than welcome.
So who's in?
