The Phoenix Convention, or P-CON for short, is an Irish science fiction, fantasy, and horror convention, with an emphasis on the more literary end of the genre. This will be the fourth running of the event which takes place over the weekend of the 10th and 11th of March 2007 at Wynn's Hotel in Dublin. Conor Kostick is an official guest and there is a short biography at the conference site. This includes some interesting news:

His next book, provisionally entitled Move (O'Brien Press, 2007), attempts to synthesize quantum mechanical theories of alternate universes with Buddhism.

What's inside the package of the German audio version of Epic on CD?

What's inside the package of the German audio version of Epic by Conor Kostick

When I originally wrote about the German audio version of Epic I was impressed that it had three voice actors. But in fact there are at least twenty actors performing the different voices. It is quite a large production. Pictured above you can see what comes inside the box. At there is already a five star review which picks up on the philosophical quesions that Epic raises:

Are humans by nature violent? How does evil define itself? What does this relate to the MORAL and the ETHICS of humans? Can totalitarian or egalitarian systems help? How do systems of government change with long lasting power? Does one give POWER also voluntarily? EPIC is a modern version of the answer to one of the oldest questions of mankind
