Just copied this from the site.

Dear visitors
the castle that we booked has a new management and that recently communicated its new, drastically altered conditions to us. Sadly these leave us with no other option than postponing the convention to 2015 and move to a new castle. Your money will be returned immedeatly. The good news is that we have found a new, way better castle with an obliging management. We will post spoilers on facebook (www.facebook.com/AnkhMorporkEV und www.facebook.com/ScheibenweltConvention) soon.
Your K.A.O.S.-Team

The new management of the Castle and KAOS couldn't agree on policy. More details as I understand them (it's all written in forrin at present).


I can read some forrin. Some info in short from the e-mail I got:

Yes, the new castle management had problems with both the sale of drinks, the other sales stands and the coffee bar, as well as with some programme items. So the programme would have to be reduced and prices "massively" raised, and as far as I understand the KAOS team were also worried about how we would be treated by the management during the Con.

I new castle has been found. More info on this is going to come later, but it has been said on the con's webpage that it is in central Germany. however, that castle it is fully booked this year and most of next year, so the next German con will be in 2015, although a German Discworld fan club gathering is being planned for 2014.

For those who paid for the con by bank transfer, you should contact the treassurer Kerstin Ludwar by e-mail schatzmeister@Ankh-Morpork.de to sort out a refund, while payments by paypal can be refunded automatically. (But I guess those of you who have paid have also got this e-mail yourself).

I've got my e-mail booking confirmation here. Apparently my ticket is valid for Do-So. Which is nice.
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"
