Fishy Circumstances

Schedule for the SFF/BSFA Mini-convention and AGM

The SFF/BSFA Mini-convention and AGM is tomorrow. I've been waylaid by a two week old and doubt I'll make it, but you should go! (Unless you're going to the SHMTS meeting in Oxford at 2pm on "The Evolution and uses of Mythical Animals", of course. That's a very fine alternative event to consider.)

The venue is the Royal Astronomical Society at Burlington House on Piccadilly in Central London, halfway between Piccadilly Circus and Green Park stations. It’s the first door on the left once you’ve entered the courtyard.
