The last couple of Cons have feature live blogging/updates on the website (dwcon.org) so I'm sure you'll be able to follow along when the time comes.

I'll be there too - complete with the housemate and the Great A'tuin coffee table for the Art Gallery (which is in need of some remedial work as 3 of the tusks on the ellies have been knocked out by doggy comet tails.... :shifty:

I've also confirmed with Eelco the head of Programme and they want the Discworld spoof of QI - Strangely Fascinating to run again. Will be looking for Elves to volunteer again v. soon ;)

And so am I and my camera :D

I have also had some thoughts about Strangely Fascinating, just need to work them up into suitably confusing questions :D
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

I have to hear back from Eelco still re the official convention theme but I think we can probably assume that it's going to be AM-centric so we can probably stick to the Watch, Moist and Unseen Academical as the 'modern' city side of it book-wise

Have also asked for Jacqueline Simpson and Stephen Briggs again and, if possible Rob or Rhianna with Chris B and Pat duking it out as to who's going to be the quiz master this time around :lol:
