I fixed the links, which appear to have gotten eaten in a copy-paste.

I wish I could make it to London - i've been following this con since the first one, and it really does seem like one the VN community should have a good representation at.

Thanks Tom, I always appreciate your support. We usually end up with a few VN people, but I'd def like to see more. I'd also encourage people to pitch talks too.

Hey, maybe I'll try to be there this year. Depending on how the projects I am currently writing for go, I may have something to show.

Since I'm dropping my usual November LARP convention this year due to shenanigans, I really should try to at least make it up there, even if I'm probably not going to make speeches :)

OMFG I could actually meet someone else from the LSF in person! Let's go for it! We could even share a hotel room and the ridiculously high London room prices.

@papilion - You definitely should come, If you don't feel like planning much you could apply to be on a panel :) But even if you don't feel like applying for an event I hope you can make it regardless. I adored Long Live the Queen so it'd be great to meet you.

@Taleweaver - Be nice to see you back, I don't remember seeing you about last year? We're in a more studenty area this year so there are much cheaper hotel options if you look. The University is a few mins walk from New Cross station // DLR so you have a range of places to look at.

The cheapest I could find if sharing was this hostel in Greenwich.

£20 each per night for a bunk bed room & breakfast then it's a 20 min train journey to the venue.

We usually book a room in a pub for after so you may want to take that into consideration with distance. Let me know if you have any concerns about finding somewhere to stay if you do come.

There's also the New Cross Inn Hostel, which offers similar prices and is just a minute's walk away. Twenty minutes on the train are maybe a little long. Only problem: it's for backpackers aged 18-40 years, and I'm already 42. Hope they still accept me when I'm already of Life, Universe and Everything age.

I just signed up for the Kickstarter again - I'll be there, whether I have something to show off or not.

I think I'll book a two-person room at the New Cross Inn Hostel I linked above - anyone want to share a room? ('Twould be nice to stay there with someone I at least have some connection to.)

Just booked my flight and room. If anyone stays at the same hostel, I'd be happy to meet them.

I did turn up today, but the lack of name badges means that no one knows I was there unless they already knew me. Sorry!

Uguu! If you saw a big guy all in black wearing a turtleneck sweater, that was me.
