|Nina launches "Outer Diverse"|
Con*Cept is Montreal's Annual Science Fiction and Fantasy Convention on October 14-16, 2011.
I met Vanessa and Toulouse in the hotel lobby. Toulouse—cool cat that he is—pointed out the espresso machine behind the front desk and winked. I ordered a double shot of the strong brew and watched Toulouse down his single shot (a lot for a small stuffed cat) in three major inhales. If he was a SIM he would have shivered with elation and uttered the SIM word for “Arriva!” What an auspicious start to Montreal’s annual science-fiction and fantasy convention!
