Ocotocon is coming…


Octocon 2013

Octocon is coming (11th to the 13th October), in the Camden Court Hotel in Dublin. This year they have a very cool app to keep everyone up to date on what’s on where and who will be there.

These are my panels but I’ll be around both days. Makes sure to say hello if you’re there. And if you aren’t there, you really should be!
