Odds and ends

The Fantasy Centre, London's Europe's only used fantasy/science fiction book store, is closing down in about 10 days. Saturday, June 13th will be the last day it's in business. Go while you still can.

There is now an O2 Centre in Berlin. This has already confused me: I received a Leonard Cohen concert invite (via Toronto's alumni association) for a concert at the O2 Centre. But not in London.

Editing Letter - the music video response to receiving them (via Lisa Shearin and her mailing list)

What is it with UK conferences I'm interested in and July? Two of them (BSHS and Leeds) are already usually back-to-back for me and a third I like is moving from September to mid-July as of next year. This means it will be highly likely that all three will be back-to-back with each other on a regular basis in the future. I'd much prefer them to be spaced out!

I'm not going to that conference this year, but I will be up in Leeds a time or two in the second half of the year for other social reasons and will let you know when I am!

There's an O2 in Dublin too, but it isn't a Centre so there is some hope for disambiguation there.

This is the worst news I've heard in a long time. It makes me really sad. Also, my next trip over isn't until the 21st ... and I'm back at work... darn darn darn...

Good heavens! The Fantasy Centre is (nearly was) only a mile or so of where I lived til two years ago! How curious to see it mentioned in a post in an LJ!

I surfed in on a comment you left in intertext's LJ, by the way. So - hi!
