Knud Larn reminds me that the Danish national SF convention is taking place at the end of August, and the GoHs are Gwyneth Jones and Charlie Stross. I can’t afford the time – I’ve got Worldcon at the beginning of August, and two cons in September. However, for UK fans who are not going to Worldcon this looks like a great option. Copenhagen is a lovely city, and the Danes are very friendly. The convention web site is here.
