I loved Pointless and Just a Minute, and enjoyed the panel on sword-fighting. The guest of honour interviews with Charlaine Harris and Kate Elliott were very interesting, and I'll definitely be giving their books a try. The Super Relaxed Fantasy Club event was a bit happy-clappy for a grump like me, but it was an ideal evening event for people who didn't fancy the bar or the disco.

I've written a review of Fantasycon 2014, but I've been asked to add in the numbers attending - does anyone know this?

Thanks

Ian

Thanks, I'm guessing around the 400 mark, but that's a guess.
