So I missed the mad rush for rooms for Â Loncon 3, Â the 72nd World Science Fiction Convention, which is being held in London between 14 and 18 August, that apparently happened in the early hours of this morning. The people running the con are doing their best to manage the demand for accessible and affordable rooms in one of the biggest and most expensive cities in the world, and that meant lotteries and late night rushes. I secured a room of sorts, but am still tinkering.
Oh, and as Â I should have mentionedÂ I am attending the convention with my twelve year old daughter, with a side trip to Paris and the south of France, Â and need to arrange rooms and flights, but haven’t really got my act together. Â Lots to do!
