Illustrious – Eastercon 2011

Illustrious, the 62nd Eastercon is being held on 22nd – 25th April 2011 at The Hilton Birmingham Metropole, NEC, Birmingham, UK.

I will be wandering around from Friday onwards and I will also be on the following panels:

Day Time Room Item Role
Saturday 4:30pm Queens “Combative female characters” Panellist
SF is full of strong women with military backgrounds and tough attitudes – Honor Harrington being a prime example. Who are these characters, and what makes them different to the standard male military characters?
Sunday 3pm Dukes “Technology v. Ideology” Panellist
Which has more influence on people & society?
Sunday 6pm Earls “Guns of the future” Panellist
SFnal weaponry: where do we go from here? What are the latest directions in weapons design?

So please come along and say hi, ask question, get involved, have fun…
