There’s many a slip and all that, but we could be looking at a revived conference in October next year. More news as it arrives.
We have just heard the sad news that Frederick E Smith has died. Famous, of course, for the 633 Squadron and the salutary tale of dealing with agents and film rights (he never made a penny from the film), Fred was a stalwart of the conference and always entertaining company at the bar. He was generous in his advice to the other authors and will be greatly missed.
