I’m really pleased to be heading off to the Camera 2022 event in Edinburgh next week, billed as Scotland’s festival of science fiction, fantasy and horror writing. It’s taking place over the Jubilee weekend, 3rd to 5th June.
This is only the second full-blown SF convention/festival I’ve attended – the other being Worldcon, Dublin in 2019 so although this is on a much smaller scale, it’s no less exciting and there looks to be a packed programme of events. It’s also only the second time I’ve visited Edinburgh, the last being some mumblety-mumble years ago when I was definitely a lot younger and had more hair. So it’s a double cause for anticipatory celebration.
We’re heading up from London by train which is another fun part of the trip I’m looking forward to. Basically after two plus years (more or less) of stay-at-home misery, this feels like an excellent opportunity for some travel and adventures, plus the chance to meet some favourite authors and sit in on some great panel discussions.
