the snow convention

Alien8

We had more snow in the early hours of the morning, but it made getting around Wexford somehow easier today. Last night the short walk back to our guest house was a little tricky due to all the ice.

Today a few brave souls dared the snow to join our coterie of sf/fantasy fans, although most had to head back in the afternoon before it froze again.

The picture above is from the official opening of the new sf/fantasy/horror book store Alien8 in Wexford by the town’s native son, novelist Eoin Colfer. Over 200 people turned up on the day despite the snow (I couldn’t even squeeze in!). Alien8 also does merchandise and graphic novels, and is well worth checking out if you’re in the vicinity.

We’ve had a great time at WexWorlds, and tomorrow we hope we will be able to traverse the snow-covered roads and get home safely
