Nottingham Signing Session: Cancelled!

Hi,

I just thought I'd post to say that the Nottingham signing session on Thursday this week is cancelled because of ill health. I emailed Waterstones to check because I didn't want to waste my time going there if he wasn't there. This is the second time in about 3 years that PTerry has cancelled Nottingham. I think he must be allergic to the place! ;-)

Oh and on a slight side note... is there a club/society/group/thing for PTerry fans in the Derby area? I'd stretch as far as Nottingham if necessary. If there isn't and you're near there and want to start one, reply here or on my LJ. But don't expect an immediate response because I'm moving house over the next week.

So that you know what you're letting yourself in for if you do contact me.... I'm 24, female and I'm an engineer. I can speak German quite fluently and I love maths, reading, photography etc.

Well, two years ago he cancelled the entire UK. So this happens.

I hope he's OK.

I had no idea he was 'doing' the UK this time 'round. Is it on L-Space?

...Okay, I'm completely new at this game. (Yay, student from the suburbs of Colorado studying abroad!) Is there a schedule of his book signings posted somewhere?

Quite a lot of the news gets posted http://www.paulkidby.com/news/index.html or on the newsgroup alt.fan.pratchett

If you are interested in contacting other Pratchett fans in the Nottingham
area I suggested you take a look at the non-LJ aspects of "online fandom"
such as the newsgroup alt.fan.pratchett and its loosely associated chat room
(see www.lspace.org)

There have been several meets in the past in Nottingham and there are still a few "afpers" in the area.

Thanks. I never did get the hang of afp. Maybe I should give it another go when I get internet at my new place.

Awww, no wonder. When he was here in Pennsylvania a week and a half ago, he was losing his voice. Poor guy.

There's an annual sf/f event, Alt.fiction, in Derby in the spring which is rather good. I can't find details online, chiz, but keep an eye open. I wish I could help you with a PTerry group/thing, but it's my bro who lives in Derby, not me! Good luck with the move.

I hope PTerry recovers soon.

That sounds fun! Anything bookish will do me really. :)

I hope PTerry gets better soon too!

Nottingham Pterry fan here. I've not really found that much of an active fandom here (well, I haven't looked) but I'm sure you could set something up.
