Snapped this lovely creature after I spotted it on the garden path on my way back from burying the compost.
Helsinki Worldcon was a total blast. Caught up with old friends, made a bunch of new ones. So many highlights: the fancypants reception at the Town Hall, the Aussie gathering at St Urho’s pub, George RR Martin’s Hugo Losers Party, Helsinki itself, with its classic trams and cobbled streets, Suomenlinna fort… Photos here. Big thanks to Jukka and the team for making it all come together.
Thank you to the NSWWC for letting me loose to direct a second Speculative Fiction Festival last Saturday at the Centre’s beautiful grounds in Callan Park. Beautiful weather really enhanced the experience – I’m pretty sure a great day was had by all. Photos here. Publishing ArtsHub review here.
