The website for FantasyCon 2010 is now live.

We haven't announced much yet, but you can look at photos of bygone years and a snazzy Google Map...

Did you fill in the booking form? Nothing's showing up...

I did, yes - plus I clicked "submit" twice, although it didn't seem to do anything...

Watch that Curtis, Stephen. He's always trying this kind of thing on . . .

He'll have the bridal suite and as much champers as he can down without puking before you can say "refund".

I think you'd best give it another try! (Maybe in a different browser?) Once it's gone though you'll get a message saying thanks for booking.

I think the problem must have been a required question that hadn't been answered. The one about which tickets you'd bought worked a bit differently to how I expected. It should be fine now.

Hey Stephen, is that right that as a FCon09 attendee, but not a BFS member, I can get the reduced rate at 35 rather than 45? I thought it was BFS members only. In fact, I'd decided against it as I thought 45 was too much (with WHC in 2010 too), but at 35 I might just go for it too. I must point out though that I didn't actually attend FCon09 due to illness, though I had paid for it. That's another thing which was putting me off - I keep booking and then not being able to go ( did the same the previous year too)! But if it's only 35 I might be tempted. You never know, it might be third time lucky.

Stephen,

Soozy & I sent off a cheque prior to a certain date a few weeks ago at what we thought was a reduced rate for everyone of 35.00 each.

We aren't sure if the cheque has been cashed yet - can you confirm we have sent the correct amount & we are booked?

Thanks,

gcw

Stephen - just went through it again (not booked the hotel as we're going to sort that out ourselves) and when I pressed "submit" it took me to a different page, so hopefully it's worked this time.

Caroline - I think so - I think that price was on the early bird forms handed out to everyone at FantasyCon 2009.

Gary, Mick - thanks, got your info!

GCW - I'll let you know; people who booked more than a couple of weeks ago will be on Debbie's database, and we're just deciding who will take that off her hands...

When's the AltFictionCon in theory? Is it at all close to FantasyCon's date?

I seem to recall reading somewhere it was planned for June, Ian, though I can't recall where I saw it. It might have been on the old Pantechnicon forum, which is, alas, no more.

Try googling Derby City Council to find their website (if you have difficulty finding it, let me know and I'll look it up for you) and see if it says anything on there. It might not though, as they're not very quick at publicising it.

Someone else here might know more than I do about it?

Thanks for the FCon price info, Stephen - I might just be tempted.

Gary & Soozy - we do have your booking. The price is fine.

Caroline - you must come; you still owe me a bag of crisps from last year!

And with interest on top, it's probably TWO bags of crisps by now!

If you run into Stephen at World HorrorCon, you can probably get away with 1 bags. Win!

I'll buy you a bag of crisps if you come. Maybe even Monster Munch.

Oooo, Monster Munch - yummy! Actually, I think I'd prefer a bag of cheesy Wotsits.

In fact, Zed, I might see you even sooner than that. Are you planning on going to the next BFS York open evening (end of Jan)? If so, I might see you there now I know what you look like.

OK you've talked me into it - I've booked for FCon. But that does mean I won't be rejoining the BFS at this point - I can't afford both.

Ramsey - yes, Guy decided to take banquet bookings separately once he'd decided what approach to take with it.

Gary - you're due a New Horizons and Prism, which Helen and Martin should be posting out any day now. We've had some fairly large hiccups lately but we're hoping to get everything back on track from March.

Ah, just checked back in this thread: I seem to have claimed that I have indeed booked, so I'll take my word for it. What could possibly go wrong there...
