WOW! He will be busy next year. With the NADWCon (which the signs are pointing to a good YES that i will be going) then this Dutch Con, and the usual Wincanton ones.

Then the interviews that he does, and the book signings, and staring out into space, when does he get time to write? :lol:

To be honest, I don't know for sure if he's attending them all. There's a German and an Australian convention next year as well as the US one and the Dutch one. :?

I'm going too! :lol: Sjoerd sulked until I said I would :P

So far no luck with registering on their website and they haven't answered my email on how they want paying (there are some banking details but I'm frankly pretty worried that there is TBH - plus email doesn't seem to work with the registration form for me in any way... :( ) but I booked the hotel anyway so I'll just have to have a day pass if it doesn't get fixed! :lol:

Yes, the official site is just saying "late 2011".

If anyone has more details, let me know and I'll add it to the Pratchett Fans Map. :)
