It's A Vibe.
Lygon Street is, after all, Little Italy.
Continuum is rocking along nicely. The panels have been great, but as any regular attendee knows, most of the best stuff happens elsewhere. Usually in the bar.
Had a great time last night, getting to know some new people and catching up with familiar faces. It's an absolute thrill when someone approaches you and introduces themself because they read your story, or your blog, or saw you on a panel or heard your name. I know I've introduced myself to a few people over the past few days for those very reasons.
And there's a vibe. A really cool, exciting vibe. The one thing I keep getting, from panels and conversations is this.
These are exciting times for Australian speculative fiction. The golden age of the small press. And we have some exciting writers emerging, some great projects happening and fun times ahead.
And remember, whatever happens on Con, usually ends up on the internet within minutes.
