Funtasy: Comedy & Humour in Genre Fiction

Hi all! Just a quick note to say that I will be speaking on a panel at this year's Fantasycon. The panel is called 'Funtasy: Comedy & Humour in Genre Fiction', and I will be joined by Frances Hardinge, Heather Lindsley, Terry Newman & Craig Saunders, moderated by Donna Scott. Very happy to contribute.

'Arguably the greatest legacy of Sir Terry Pratchett was to prove that fantasy can be funny without reducing its power to tell great stories and move readers. But it is a delicate balance -- being funny can be a serious business. Our panel discusses uses of humour in genre. Hilarity ensues.'

So, if you want to witness a nervous man talking nonsense, then please do drop by. I will attempt to say at least one interesting thing during the course of the hour. If hilarity does ensue, it won't be my fault.

In other news, I found out this week I was a finalist in last year's Screenwriting Goldmine Awards. Which was nice.

I need to go and write stuff down bye *attention span over*
