Does the British Fantasy Society have a circle on Google + ?

I made a start with Google+ and even managed to cultivate a couple of exciting Circles to swirl about in, but alas the name police finally caught up with me, and if I'm to be honest it's still at that 'new user' stage where I just find it easier (and quicker) to stick to Twitter for now...

It might go the same way as Google wave (which I actually loved using) and die an agonizing death.

I was invited by a mate but declined - there have been some unpleasant rumours about Google and respecting copyright and I'm a little mistrustful of a company that goes around taking photos of people's houses and without prior permission posting them on the net for anyone to see [pity I didn't have a work of art on the lawn then I could sue them for copyright  :D ] - so I'm in a double-minus hurry to be Google-plussed

They do appear to be double-plus ungood at things.

Google+ is going the same way as facebook too intrusive, with google they get getting to be too power mad it's a case as do as we say or you can not access your stuff as happened to someone on another forum I use, I too declined when they asked me to suscribe to + check out the links.
Going to the darkside they are.
