Before I get wrapped up in fun stuff (or snowed in, which is also possible in these southerly parts) I wanted to remind everyone that February's Trout is next Thursday, 12th February, from 7pm-ish in The Cask and Still, Hope Street. If you haven't been there before, we meet in the area at the back of the pub. All SF/Fantasy fans welcome.

Some sad news for those of us who remember cons there: the Central Hotel has closed down. It had its problems, but I always enjoyed the cons there. No one who saw John Salthouse's displays of pyromania in the Logie Baird Room is ever likely to forget it. Very sad to see it go.

[ETA: and I have just been told that John Salthouse himself has died recently. It gets worse and worse...]

In case you haven't noticed, it's 2009. Which is 40 years since 1969, the year Apollo 11 landed on the Moon. How's a fan to celebrate an event like that? Why, by going to a con, of course! Over the weekend of July 25-26th, Satellite 2 will be held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Glasgow. It will offer the same mix of fun and serious programming as Satellite 1 did, the GoH is Iain M. Banks... so what are you waiting for? Memberships available now!

Aetherica is a fantasy convention you really should go to. It's being held in Chester on June 19th-21st 2009. It has a website. Memberships are available. It will be fun. What are you waiting for?
