Octocon Announces New Chairman!

Wed 31st Mar 2004

Octocon Announces New Chairman!Due to work commitments, James Brophy has decided to stand down from the position of chairman. This announcement was made at the Octocon Brainstorming Session on Tuesday 30th March. Fortunately, James will remain involved with the committee and will continue to lend his experience - and his exceptional graphics skills - to the convention!

Octocon is taking place on 16th and 17th of October. The guests are Anne McCaffrey, Storm Constantine, Roger Gregg, Harry Harrison, John Kaiine, Dirk Maggs, Kim Newman. Guest of Honour is the legendary Tanith Lee.

Taking James's place in the captain's chair will be Michael Carroll, whose involvement with Octocon goes all the way back to the first convention in 1990. Michael was on the committee of Octocon in 1992 and in 1997, and was also on the committee of last year's They Came and Shaved Us convention.

Michael says, "It's going to be tough to follow James's excellent leadership, but I think I can do it. James has a wealth of experience for me to draw upon, plus carrying Octocon for so long has given him great big shoulders, which I'm sure he won't mind me crying on if things get bad.

"Right now, Octocon is in excellent shape: the Brainstorming Session gave us a whole bunch of new people and new ideas, though anyone else interested in helping out or suggesting ideas should feel free to get in touch with us via the website.

"With our superb line-up of guests and hundreds of brilliant ideas bouncing around, I have no doubt that Octocon 2004 will be the best SF / Fantasy event this country has ever seen!"
