Mon, 11 August 2014 Loncon 3 schedule

Elevenses at St Pancras

I’m heading over to London on Wednesday evening for the 72nd World Science Fiction Convention (Loncon 3), which is taking place in the ExCel, London Dockland from 14 – 18 August.

Here’s my schedule of events during the weekend:

12pm Friday, August 15
What Do You Mean You Don’t Watch … Orphan Black, Grimm or The Returned
Capital Suite 17 (Level 3), 12pm – 1pm
Mark Slater, Jeanne Beckwith, Maura McHugh, David D Levine (I’m speaking on behalf of The Returned.)

1:30pm Friday, August 15
Best 21st Century Comics: Predicting the New Classics
Capital Suite 13 (Level 3), 1:30pm – 3pm
Ada Palmer, Maura McHugh, Hannah Berry, Adam Rakunas, John Anderson

7pm Friday, August 15
Comic Book Networking: It’s Not Just The Interwebs
Capital Suite 3 (Level 3), 7pm – 8pm

11am Saturday, August 16

4:30pm Saturday, August 16

11am Sunday, August 17

Capital Suite 9 (Level 3), 11am – 12pm

It looks like it’s set to be one of the biggest Worldcons ever (if not the biggest one). There are so many events going on I’ve no idea where to start looking at the programme outside of my own schedule, and there will be the chance to catch up with friends and colleagues I haven’t seen in some time.

Plus, there’s all the prep (I call it my Worldcon homework) I have to do for the panels in advance of the convention.

And almost immediately afterwards there will be Shamrokon in Dublin!
