There’s a new conference taking place in a couple of weeks, following some successful Kickstartering: Nine Worlds Geek Fest 2013, near London. Heathrow, in fact. Convenient for our aeroplane readers. And I’ll be there, along with Cara Ellison and some mysterious, besuited stranger called Kieron Gillen. Along with proper famous names like Boing Boing’s Cory Doctorow, the Guardian’s Laurie Penny, Doctor Who writer Paul Cornell, game writer Rhianna Pratchett, Red Dwarf star Chris Barrie, and a squillion others. The conference covers comics, sci-fi, science, geek feminism, and of course, gaming. Cara and I are on panels for the latter two, and you should come along.
