Hope this is not a trend, as I am saving specifically for a return UK trip in 2016 for Spring Fling.

The impression I got was that it certainly is not intended to be a permanent removal from the calendar - it's just that with so many books and related matters coming to the public in the next few months, they don't have time to organise it.

Please see 'the Gathering of the Loonies (Wincanton chapter)

It's/It would have been immediately before the Australian Convention and getting organised for that will be work enough!
My next project is a book in which I explore the influence of the music of Beyonce on the writings of J R R Tolkien. It's called "It you write it, you have to put a ring in it"

Although (as of yet), Ian & Reb are not coming to NAV - I know they wanted to, but it was a matter of finances - we do have a Skype call lined up with Bernard, though.
