We first wrote about TitanCon, which is to take place in Belfast on September 24, earlier in March – on the very day the release date for A Dance with Dragons was announced, in fact. In case you missed it because of that: TitanCon is a SF&F literary, media, and gaming convention, an important part of which are all things Game of Thronesian, and which in many ways represents an evolution from the previous GoT Belfast moots. You will be able to meet a slew of Irish and international authors, artists, and film-makers there, and participate in many diverse events and activities, as is customary at a con.
For Game of Thrones fans, there are at least two big points of note. First, you will be able to meet members of the cast at the event. Miltos Yerolemou (Syrio) and Kristian Nairn (Hodor) have already confirmed their attendance as guests, and there are others who are more than willing to join, but we need to wait for their shooting schedules first. Several GoT discussion panels will be organised. Second, on the Sunday after the convention proper, the TitanCon guys and gals have organised a full-day activity no fan of the show would want to miss. Read all about it in the announcement below and follow the links. Hear Me Roar will be there!
