Subject: [travel|conventions] We are going to WFC in Brighton
Security: Public
Tags:conventions, france, radiantlisa, travel, uk
As previously discussed, thanks to the extreme generosity and support of Unnamed Benefactors, Lisa Costello and I will be at World Fantasy Convention in Brighton at the end of this month.

I'll actually be flying over on October 23rd, arriving on the 24th and going straight to Paris to visit friends until the 26th, then back to London staying with friends until 30th. Lisa arrives on 31st, and we're down to Brighton, flying home on the 4th.

Due to my ill health and mobility impairments, and the resultant travel fatigue, my schedule will be quite light. However, there will probably be some kind of public event or appearance in Paris, which I will announce. I may also have a bit of social availability in London, so if you're hoping to see me, let me know. And of course we'll both be in Brighton and generally available to the extent my health allows.

See some, all or none of you there.

Oh, *envy* - I do so lurv Brighton. Lived in the UK in 1985-86 whilst studying at Uni of Sussex, just outside B-ton. Spent many happy hours playing pinball at the pier (no longer there), wandering the Lanes, admiring the Royal Pavilion (outside & in), &c. And Paris! And London! Enjoy!

So much of British conventions takes place in the bar, that if you get settled there for a while, the world will come to you. And buy you a drink. Or two.

Ah, best wishes for an easy trip over & back. Say "bonjour" to my beloved soul-city. "A bad day in Paris is better than a good day anywhere else." I know that's 'murrican tourist-thought, but I do feel that way (since I don't have to live in her slums, or deal with her insane bureacracy).

I will be in London at that time, and Brighton after. I definitely hope to see you in one or both places.
