Is late, I know, and it won’t be comprehensive as I’m just tossing it down when I’m supposed to be working. However, as I can’t see me having any serious computer time til next week, just quickly, here is a brief wrap up.
I won a Ditmar. 🙂
Seriously, that’s it!
I had a ball at Swancon, barring the odd organisational issue. The people were awesome (I used that word a lot!) and there was lots of fun to be had. It was great to finally meet some people in the flesh, and get to know others that bit better. I even went to a program item! Fair enough, it was Rob Shearman’s reading, but I went!
2012/Worker’s Paradise launch was fun, as was of course girliecon and the various room parties in
‘s room (you’re a legend!). I had family commitments Saturday night, but the Ditmars were great (well done
) not the least because Andromeda Spaceways won Best Professional Achievement, and me Best New Talent, which was lovely, thanks to all who voted. girliejones and co also cleaned up, and Rick Kennett’s story from ASIM 28 won Best Short Story. Tin Ducks were cool too (congrats to
on winning the long form!), and it was just great to see so many people I know winning well deservedly. The Mumfan and Silver Swan awards were tear jerking, and make you really appreciate the community in general.
I’ve missed loads of important stuff, and I hope to be more comprehensive soon. Best go do some real work now!
