BristolCon

So, had a great time at BristolCon - a very friendly and well put-together sci/fi and fantasy con. I bought some books, I met some great people, I learned some things, I enjoyed the free coffee. Plus, the panel I was on went very well: 30-40 people gathered to hear me, Jasper Fforde, Anna Stephens and Jacey Bedford talk about the trials and tribulations of becoming a published author.

“The Armageddon Machine Mackenzie watched the universe end. It was beautiful, like a flower closing up for the night. Stars and planets swirled inwards, spiralling around and down, faster and faster, collapsing into an infinitesimal particle. As silent as the sunset. The more space/time that was pulled in, the more massive the particle became and the more gravity it exerted on what remained of the universe.”
