* I'm delighted to say it's official: I'll be giving an hour-long academic presentation on "Sherlock Holmes and Science Fiction" at Loncon 3: The 72nd World Science Fiction Convention in London this summer. (It's the perfect year for returning to London, as it's the 160th birthday of Mr. Holmes!) It looks like I'll be on some terrific panels, as well. I'll post my schedule when I know it.

* Speaking of Sherlock Holmes: "One Fixed Point: Sherlock, Sherlock Holmes, and the British Imagination." (Thanks to cookiefleck!)

* Check out the latest experience from StarShipSofa: The Sofanauts! You're invited! "Do you travel extensively to meet and hear the great creators of science fiction or wish that you could? Now you don’t have to do so! The Sofanauts will bring highly respected and sought-after guests directly to you for video talks and chats. Hear and interact with SF legends and rising stars from the comfort of your own home!"

I want to so much - it sounds fantastic! I'm currently wrestling with my schedule to see what I can make happen. I'll already be missing the beginning of the semester thanks to Worldcon... augh! I haven't given up, though. *fingers and toes crossed*

I really hope you can. If you're here for WorldCon, you'll already be on the right side of the Pond!

Ever wish that El Santo had gone up against the minions of Cthulhu? Cthulhu Helper is coming in Luchador Board Game flavor.
