The Eastercon programme schedule is now online here. As far as I know, I am doing the following:
- Getting your digital fix, Friday 10:30pm
- Women Invisible, Saturday 1:30pm
- Britain’s new nuclear programme, Sunday 4:30pm
I believe that Kevin will be on the Why Being A Fat Fan Is Bad For You panel (Friday 9:00pm).
The scheduling is, um, interesting. In particular the Women Invisible panel has been scheduled against David Weber’s GoH talk. From one point of view it rather clever: the sort of people who love military SF won’t be interested in feminism, and vice versa. On the other hand, it acts to perpetuate exactly the sort of problem that the panel is all about.
Elsewhere my Sunday panel has been scheduled against the Translation panel. I’m very much hoping we get no audience for mine so I don’t have to do it.
But the things you folks will be interested in are 7:30pm Saturday, which is the BSFA Awards ceremony, and 10:30 on Sunday, which is billed as Admiralty Ball & Announcement of the 2010 Hugo Award Nominations. Internet connections willing, Kevin and I will try to cover both of those live.
Of course the Hugo announcement has been scheduled against the LGBT Meetup, because no prominent UK LGBT fans have any interest in the Hugos, do they? *headsmack*
Update: It has been pointed out to me that Peter Hamilton’s GoH talk is scheduled against Women in SF.
Also Roz’s poetry reading has been scheduled against the BSFA Awards.
