Well, well, well, we’re almost there, almost at Sci-Fi Con. (14 November. Nine days left and counting). It’s been a few months coming. A few months in the making. And a few months of additional stress, and excited off the wall Jedi-Style bouncing.
Soon the great day will be upon us; and we will all be thrown into the world of delicious geekiness and combined nerdiness. All taking place at the surreal looking Midrand English Primary School. (10.00 to 4.30)
We have a fantastic day planned. We have well over a dozen stalls in attendance…
