Living in London I can offer help if you need anything that someone from the city could help.

Man, up until the fallout from shingles and breaking my foot, I'd been living there since Aug last year...

We could have been talking shop for time already, Vegetables!

I mean, I'm coming back after my foot is healed as I'm still renting a place until the end of August but I don't actually know what I'm doing in September yet.

Darn it, its too late for me now. Never mind, I will try to attend next year :) (in case of such opportunity) Even better, don't you want to do it in Europe as well? ;)

Sorry VW - we're too poor to host in Europe, and it was hard enough to get Bakker to come even though its within walking distance of his backyard (maybe long walk, still though!).

Double sorry it took soooooooooooooooooooo long to get a response. We've been trying for, literally, months to get even a soft commit to avoid exactly this eventuality. Alas, the world conspires.

Maybe we'll try again when the next book comes out. See you in 10 years :P .
One of the other conditions of possibility.

No need to be sorry at all. I am glad that something like this is going on, even though I will not be able to attend (as I am being poor as well/saving money for trip to japan). But I wouldn't mind meeting my favourite author at some (time) point :)
Next time, I will have to notice this event sooner.
I wish you a great time.

I have the same situation. Best of lucks with the convention. I hope you post reports of it here.

Do you know if Bakker is going to attend to some other event in Europe in the future?
I mean GRRM is going to be in Helsinki at the WorldCon that starts in a few days. It would be great to see Bakker in other future events here.

It really would. I've never been to an SFF convention of any kind (in fact, my convention experiences in general are extremely limited), mostly because they're pretty few and far between in the Nordics. Maybe beggars can be choosers, and I would certainly choose to come to a convention that boasts someone like RSB and one or two others. Henrik Larson and ye olde Swedish author #12 doesn't have the same appeal  ???

The same for me here in Spain.

Lol - trust me, amicable as he was, it wasn't easy to get Bakker to show up to this and it's in the town where he lives ;).

Yeah, and it's a pity.  :(
As I said in other threads I think he would have more readers and sales doing a little more of promotion.

Indeed. Quite excited. Christmas in August ;).

Bakker's brother and/or I will be recording the talk and Q&A tonight to post online (and as per the Q&A thread here, Bakker's brother apparently might be filming portions of tonight and tomorrow for some kind of mini-doc) but Wilshire and I are going to try and figure out if we can Twitch stream tonight as well.

So, I missed it. Shoot -- it's been quite a month.

Any chance of getting access to footage? Other descriptions for vicarious experiencing?
