Conflux 13: Day 4

October 2, 2017 at 4:22 pm (Daily Awesomeness)

I have only the haziest recollections of today, the shortest day of the conference.

There was the dealer room (taken here in a quiet moment):


There was food (this is the asparagus and avocado salad with optional chicken):

(That’s right. I ate salad, y’all.)



There was much cheering, especially at the launch of the Never Never Book Box:

I should probably mention that (a) The conference was buzzing with the book box love, and (b) I’m friends with the curator (she’s technically a work friend but we have even more than writingness in common). (c) The Never Never Book Box is closely linked to Odyssey through friendship, casual work, and most of all through the fact that both have an enduring love of Australian speculative fiction.

So that’s Conflux done until 2018. I had an absolute blast. I also broke a nail carrying a box of my own books. I feel like that’s some kind of metaphor, but it’s best not to examine it too closely.
