Nick Pope aside, although I loved Helen Keen's comedy routine, I did also think when she referred to Jack Parsons as a satanist, "At any other venue you'd get away with that, but here there'll be someone who'll correct you."

And sure enough, somebody indignantly piped up, "He wasn't a satanist. He was a Thelemite who followed the ideas of Aleister Crowley."

Though in all fairness, from her response it sounds like she already knew that, but had used a bit of artistic licence because...well, because I doubt Thelemite jokes will have much mileage among her forthcoming Radio 4 listeners.

For those benighted provincials who were unable to make the beano, will we be able to see it on youtube?

How about a midlands based Uncon next time? The venue will be cheaper and its central for the whole country.

As I was unable to attend this year (wretched finnances, keeping me in a state of Puaperhood!), I shall look forward to the next issue (December, or even January 2011) to read all about!

I got my copy of 'Spirit Roads', by Paul Devereux, in the post, today. A jolly good read it is, too.
