A LETTERKENNY Science Fiction author will be one of the invited guests of this year’s second ever TitanCon Science Fiction Literary and Media Convention in Belfast.
Peadar Ó Guilín , or Peter Golden as he is known amongst friends in his native Letterkenny be-
fore his self-confessed Gaelgoir phase in college, will be one of several authors to attend the convention at the Europa Exhibition Centre on September 22.
Ó Guilín has released two novels to date, his recent being The Deserter, published by David Fickling Books, which is a direct sequel to his first published novel, The Inferior (2007) which has since its release been translated into over ten different languages.
The main focus of TitanCon is Game of Thrones, as there will be panels on the HBO series (filmed in Northern Ireland) and on the original George RR Martin books that started it all.
Actors Miltos Yerolemou, Kristian Nairn and Ron Donachie who play Syrio Forel, Hodor and Rodrik Cassel respectively on the show. One of the storyboard artists, William Simpson, will also be in attendance on the day. Miltos will be holding a workshop on sword fighting.
