Wed, 24 September 2014 D.I.C.E. 2014

This weekend the third Dublin International Comics Expo (D.I.C.E) is taking place in Pembroke Square, Dundrum Town Centre, Co. Dublin, and I’m delighted to be attending as a guest.
It’s the first time I’ve been able to go to D.I.C.E – I was out of the country for both previous events – so I’m looking forward [...]

Thu, 04 September 2014 FantasyCon in York

I’ve just recovered from the double-header of Worldcon followed by Eurocon, and I’m off to York today, this time for FantasyCon – the annual convention of the British Fantasy Society.
I last visited York about 20 years ago during May, and have good memories of of the city. So, I’m looking forward to returning to the [...]

Thu, 21 August 2014 Shamrokon schedule

Tomorrow marks the start of Shamrokon in Dublin, the European science fiction convention (Eurocon) which is held in a different country each year.
After all the fun and frolics at Worldcon in London last weekend, I’m approaching this event with anticipation, tempered with a little fatigue.
Here’s my schedule:

Made In Ireland: Fantasy Classics By Irish Authors: [...]

Fri, 11 July 2014 ArcadeCon 2014

ArcadeCon is taking place in the Ballsbridge Hotel this weekend, and I’ll be dropping by for a couple of panels and to chat to people.
I was a special guest at ArcadeCon last year, and it was one of the friendliest conventions I’ve ever attended in Ireland – chock-full of fantastic cosplayers and fans who [...]

Mon, 21 October 2013 World Fantasy Convention 2013

As soon as it was announced – several years ago – that World Fantasy Convention was going to be held in Brighton in 2013 I bought a membership. WFC rarely travels outside of the USA or Canada, despite its globe-trotting title, and the last time it was on this side of the Atlantic was in [...]

Fri, 24 June 2011 never enough time

This was taken on the metro in Stockholm, Sweden when I visited in April. It was night-time and we were heading back from the pub.
This summarises for me the rather hectic pace of our life these days. We are always rushing somewhere, our minds on the clock, agendas and errands.
It’s hard to leave that behind [...]

Sat, 27 November 2010 snowy WexWorlds

The drive down to Wexford yesterday was good, if somewhat tiring, and on a couple of occasions made frustrating by a lack of signage – an old problem on roads in Ireland.
We went to the opening of WexWorlds – the Mayor of Wexford showed up – met friends, and had food.
This morning we [...]

The first novel in the series, Game of Thrones, is currently being filmed in Northern [...]
