Conflux, Canberra’s annual convention for speculative fiction writers and fans, begins next week! This year it is taking place from Friday 28 September until Monday 1 October and the theme is Unconventional Heroes. YA author Ambelin Kwaymullina is the Guest of Honour, along with local horror author Rob Hood. As usual, I will be attending and am very much looking forward to making some new friends as well as catching up with some old ones.

If you have an interest in speculative fiction and can make it along, please stop by and say hi! I love getting to know new people. However, if Canberra is a little too far away for you or attending conventions is not your sort of thing, there’s no need for you to miss out entirely. I shall be posting a convention report once the excitement is over (and I’ve had the chance for a few restorative cups of tea).
