Sorry about the short notice, but here comes, for the first time in over a year...

TTACon 9

Place: London

Venue: Filthy McNasty

Adress: 68 Amwell Street,, London,, EC1R 1UU(copy & paste this in Google Maps, or -- as described by Dave Matthew):
Quote:
It's about ten minutes from Kings Cross on foot. (Leave the station, turn left, keep walking up the hill, turn right when you see the tapas bar on the other side of the road).

Special Guests: Ellen Datlow, Pat Cadigan, John & Judith Clute;

Also attending: a variety of people from Interzone & Black Static.

Beers on tap: Guinness, Hoegaarden, Red Stripe, Adnams and a large variety of whisky... :mrgreen:

Blech. The only Saturday in February when I'm not free :(
I hope there will be other TTAcons...

Those directions of mine are really rough-and-ready, but that's how it was described to me fourteen years ago and I managed to find it, so it should be okay... I don't know the names of the roads, but if you're really stuck all the cabbies know Filthy's. And I suppose I was saying ten minutes because I know the way and I walk fast; it might be closer to fifteen. And I hope that tapas bar is still there, for your orientation! I haven't been to Filthy's for a little while. Enough disclaimers? Oh, and one more thing: my directions are turn LEFT if you come out of Kings Cross/St Pancras. If you're arriving by Kings Cross Thameslink you will need to turn right out of the station (and you'll get there faster).

We launched Jai Clare's book there in November and it's a great little venue. About fifteen minutes from the station sounds about right. Hope to come.

Alternatively, Google Maps will sort you out. I just tried to embed the URL, but it's too long. Just do a search, you'll find it.

Hope I can make it along - be nice to put faces to some of the names and email addresses! :D

London eh? Much better than Cambridge for me - less chance of falling asleep on a train and being stuck there, for a start... ;)

I've done that. When I lived in Stevenage - fell asleep on the train returning from London, and woke up in Cambridge at 3 a.m.

Clearly the city is to blame - it feeds on the latent narcolepsy of its victims...

Interzone has a facebook thing but I don't really know how to use it other than ignore "you've been bitten by a vampire" stuff (don't get it), so this might be a good time to ask if anybody wants to play with it on behalf of IZ? Good way to get a bit more involved in the magazine, and you could do what you liked, so you might enjoy it. :)

Booked hotel & flight, so hope to see quite a few of you there!

Aliette--

I certainly hope there will be more this year! Obviously we will discuss this at TTACon 9, and I am for one in the Summer.

I do know that the launch of Andrew Humphrey's Other Voices is in Norwich on March 1, and that it might be a joint launch with his novel Alison, according to the grapevine...

:mrgreen:

Further north than London and Cambridge? Pretty please? :)
