Where on your page(s) would I look to find any of the Posters that will represent the authors and experiences? Thank You
Nowhere on the pages, I am afraid: they are far too large (2.1 by .8 metres). they are going on public display at the World Science Fiction Convention in London next month; and thereafter at other venues, to be arranged. I shall probably be putting the *information* that is up on the banners on the Pages before long; but not until after Worldcon — I am far too busy!
oh!
