It's almost time for Eastercon, which this year is at the Radisson Edwardian Hotel at Heathrow. I'm giving one of my history talks -- it's been 5 years, I think, since the last one, and they asked, so... My schedule is below:
Friday 4pm Connaught "Arthur and Merlin - Where do the legends originate?" Speaker" Confirmed Kari Sperring (Dr Kari Maund) looks at the earliest references to Arthur and Merlin, and how the legends developed over time. Friday 6pm Connaught "Arthur and Merlin - modern interpretations" Moderator" Confirmed How do modern versions of the Arthurian stories compare with earlier ones? Books, films and TV have all created new strands to the legends. It this a bad thing, or simply the natural progression of folklore? Saturday 1pm Hotel Lobby "Open Autograph Session - 1pm - 2pm" Participant" Confirmed Lots of our attending writers, and some our guests, will be present to sign your books. Monday 7pm Connaught "Grammar Police" Panellist" Confirmed What punctuation errors annoy you the most? Who should be lined up against the wall and shot? Which correct form of English would you like to see given wider usage? Does correct English really matter?
