'Twas in th' Nubbins o' '94....

Back in 1994, the University of Canterbury Science Fiction Club put on a convention called Ikon, with Terry Pratchett as the guest of honour.

Things did not go according to plan, and there were kerfuffles. Feelings were hurt.

However, I knew little of that except for the problems I had getting the poster for the convention printed, in the face of a crappy scanning bureau and a shitty, absent printer.

While I was looking through a box of old stuff, I came upon the large-format transparency I'd had made of the artwork, so I scanned it and here it is.

I got Terry's autograph on the little folder that the transparency is kept in.
