Harry e-mailed recently to say that he’ll be at the ‘new improved Octocon’ which is being held in the Republic of Ireland in October.
The convention takes place 18th and 19th October 2008, at the Royal Dublin Hotel, which is on O’Connell Street, in the heart of Dublin.
Here’s the link to the official Octocon convention website.
Harry has been a regular guest at the convention in the past – I’ve interviewed him ‘on stage’ there a couple of times, and we launched the Harry Harrison website there – in October 1999, if I remember correctly. My co-conspirator on the HH website is author Michael Carroll, whose most recent work is the excellent New Heroes / Quantum Prophecy series: Mike will also be one of the guests at Octocon 2008. And the convention’s GoH is Ken MacLeod.
