    Time for reading glasses? I found this happening to me more and more. The last straw was a monster edition of Aldiss's Helliconia Trilogy with smallish print. Following that, I went to the optician...

    I really enjoyed Will Carver's Nothing Important Happened Today, a thriller about multiple suicides. I'll definitely be reading more of his work.

    I have just started Nothing Important Happened Today by Will Carver. Only 5% in, but very happy so far.

    I'm about to leap on the "A Little Hatred" bandwagon. Really looking forward to it.

    DUBLIN 2019: An Irish Worldcon August 15-19 2019

    Hi folks, I had a tremendous time at both WorldCon and TitanCon. It was one of the busiest periods of my life and I am shamed how little time I had to spend with my friends, but you all seemed to be enjoying yourselves. Some of you, I didn't see at all or saw speeding by in the distance. One of these, I'm pretty sure was @lady narcissa, but she was wearing sunglasses and didn't seem to recognise me, so I thought, no bother, I'll see her later on. Never happened and there were others too, I told I'd have coffee with and I never did. Sorry for that. Many thanks to those who organised everything and kept the cons flowing. I have finally finished moving out of my house and am sick in bed with the Con Lurgy from hell. I plan to stay here a few days if I can. Good luck to you all!

    Not that I've ever seen! But I'm sure the checks will be back by winter

    As Pebble said, there is currently no border and absolutely no way of checking anybody going from Dublin to Belfast. If you already knew that, sorry for the excess info!

    Just to say, re: Belfast, that Kevin Andrew Murphy no longer needs a room up there. However, he has a spare bed of his own if somebody wants to share... Let me know and I'll pass it on.

    I would love to help with the touristy stuff, but I won't have much free time this month -- I'm moving out of my house on the 28th! Along with WorldCon and TitanCon and visitors staying over it's all going to be a bit full on My apologies to you all!

    For TitanCon (not WorldCon, but we seem to have merged them here), if anybody is looking for a roommate in Belfast, Wild Cards author, Kevin Andrew Murphy will be joining us for TitanCon.

    I don't want to speak for everybody, but my experience with the BwB is that we are *always" delighted to meet our counterparts from anywhere in the world. You will be very welcome in Dublin.

    This. A few people need to confirm they are happy with their programme. So, there is still a chance that things might change.

    OK, I just got my final programme. @Quaithe from Asshai , this probably means George has his too and I'd expect him to publicise it over on his blog any time now. @Wolfgang I My own reading is on Sunday at 11am. You can watch it just before you go to bed

    Sorry, I don't know what the timeline is at the moment. My involvement is fairly peripheral. I'm sure it won't be long before we find out, though. A lot of authors are querying the programme team about it.

    I believe I will be, yes It's one of my favourite things to do, even if I usually end up with about 4 people in the audience -- all from the BwB!
