Tobias Buckell came to Barbados to attend AnimeKon Expo as guest of honour. I had a great time playing tourist for a day with him and his wife. There was so little time for sightseeing, though. They’re going to have to come back for a longer stay!
AnimeKon was fantastic. Our panel on fantasy writing and worldbuilding with Robert Edison Sandiford went really well, and we had great conversations with readers and budding writers. Tobias’s books were hugely popular – they sold out! But don’t take my word for it. Tobias has a detailed post here, with photos and video, that really captures the experience.
Make plans for AnimeKon Expo 2012!
