Plans have begun for the next Eaton Conference, to be held in May 2009. It's themed around Jules Verne.
The breaking news is: the second Eaton Lifetime Achievement Award will be going to...(roll on the drums, please)... Mr Frederik Pohl!
This latter information comes from an interview with Melissa Conway, published here. Official conference details are to be found here.
The first recipient of the award was, of course, Ray Bradbury - seen above with Fred Pohl at the 2008 conference, where I presented a paper.
