Lots of bloggery today, because tomorrow I am heading for Finland and my first ever Åcon.
In US con terms, Åcon is a literary relaxacon. Rather like SMOFcon, it is as much a holiday for Finnish con-runners as a convention, but it is a holiday that they take in the company of a favourite writer. This year that writer is Catherynne M. Valente.
There will be some programming. I’m on two panels. The first is on post-modernist fantasy. The other is on kick-ass heroines. I shall be referencing this.
But I’ll also reference the blog post on which I found it.
There may also be beer, chocolate and sauna. And doubtless mosquitoes.
I’ll try to blog when I can, but I understand that the hotel only has wifi in the lobby, so tweetage will be limited.
