Soddit!

I just realised that Mecon, the Northern Ireland unicon, runs on the 29th-31st August. And that I have to be at work on September 1st...

Right now I suspect that this means I will have to skip the con - I was hoping to do it by rail and sea and have a real break, and I really don't want to have to fly instead, especially if it means coming back from Ireland on a Sunday evening with work the following morning.

The really annoying part is that there are no kids in that day (or the next couple after it), it's just teacher training, but we aren't allowed to take leave on those days for reasons that don't actually make a lot of sense to me.

Queen Victoria and the Holy Grail

I just found a spare copy of Queen Victoria and the Holy Grail, the Golden Heroes adventure I wrote for Games Workshop in 1985 - fairly badly battered and slightly grubby cover, but the pages are clean apart from some staining in the top margin of a few pages, and it still has the page of cardboard cutouts.

I'm not sure what to do with this - I'd like to raise some money for charity, but it probably isn't fantastically valuable, and I suspect that it will sink without a trace on eBay. Anyone know any fanatical GW collectors that might be interested?
