ManorCon XXIV will be held on 21st to 24th July 2006, in Shackleton Hall at the University
of Birmingham, England. This year, the con will be in a different area of Shackleton. Rio's
is a two storey hall that is completely new following the refurbishment. We will be using
both levels, including the bar that serves directly into the lower level. More information about the
The Flyer and booking form.
The following arrived in my e-mail box whilst I was putting this thing together. I haven't looked at it myself, but would be interested in a report from anyone who has seen it:

About that e-mail address shown above. Many folk are using this format to foil all those obnoxious spammers out there. Substitute the usual "@" for the "of" and replace any "dot"s with a period, and you have the original e-mail address.

But when we come to paying down of crowns, and embarking of large squadrons, we must have to propose to our subjects some substantial excuse for plunging them in war; some proposal for the public good or, by Saint George! For our own private advantage, which is the same thing. This is the course the world runs, and Oxford, to tell the plain truth, I mean to hold the same bias."|
