<plokta.con> Update

We regret to announce that Diana Wynne Jones is unwell, and may not be able to attend <plokta.con>. We're sure you would join us in offering her our best wishes for a speedy recovery. If she's unable to attend, the Guest of Honour interview on Saturday afternoon will be replaced with a panel discussion of her works. We will refund membership in full for anyone who decides that they would prefer not to attend the convention.

Whether or not Diana can attend, the rest of the convention will go ahead as normal, with Paul Cornell as our Guest of Honour for Sunday. A PDF copy of the draft convention Read-Me, including the programme, can be found here. Note that all items are liable to change.
