Ah.... times I wished that I lived in in London, or anywhere near it. Oh well.... I hope you all have fun when the time comes around.

Do you think, by some chance, that there could be an AF convention, or something similiar, in the US? (JW)

It's not something I'd ever be able to set up. It would have to be set up by someone in the US or by Hyperion or something. Penguin are doing a load of stuff for the 10th Anniversary of Artemis Fowl... so we're getting a complete set of new covers (which look AWESOMELY EPIC, by the way), and loads of other super secret yet extremely exciting stuff, and they've tasked me with setting out the plan for the AF convention...

I know you don't really know much about the details yet, but maybe if it's in a year I might finally get to go to England...I doubt it though...

It'll be cool if they did something like that here. And I'm assuming that the new set of covers are UK.

Wait,wait,wait!! I think I could go. I'm Libyan British and going back for a couple of years maybe. But definately for the summer. Omg, My dad will totally say yes!!!! As an end of school year present. So awesome! :shiny: ok, so, can you estimate, Matt!? Just a professional guess, so I can get some kind of guideline. We have a house about 2 hrs away from London, in crawley. Any teensy, tiny piece of info will be greatly appreciated! :loveeyes:

When NASA first started sending up astronauts, they quickly discovered that ball-point pens would not work in zero gravity.

To combat this problem, NASA scientists spent a decade and $12 billion developing a pen that writes in zero gravity, upside down, on almost any surface including glass and at temperatures ranging from below freezing to over 300 degrees C.

The Russians used a pencil.

Well, as it stands at the moment, I'd probably try and organise it for either the last saturday of August (the 27th) or the first saturday of September (the 3rd) But probably the second, as this is two days after Artemis' birthday.

It MIGHT be a ticket event, depending on where we can organise it for, and it would be somewhere in central London. That literally is all I can think of for now. I'll get onto Penguin and get this date finalised and we can look at somewhere to book.

Not doing it on a weekday I'm afraid. People and parents work...

I'll evaluate the pros/cons of each date and discuss with Penguin, then once we set an official date I'll start planning...

Well I work on weekend nights ;)

I'm sure I could take a weekend off, it just depends when.

Wrong side of the world. Sadface.


You've got plenty of time to save up for a plane ticket! :D


Dude, plane tickets from Australia to the UK are about two grand. That's why there's so many Aussie backpackers in Europe - the expensive part is getting there, so we tend to stay a while.

GRAGH.
