Hot off the press!
I am honoured to be among the Guests of Honour at this year’s FantasyCon to be held in Brighton, England, September 30th – October 2nd this year. Other GoHs are Gwyneth Jones, Peter Atkins, John Ajvide Lindqvist, and sci-fi heavyweight Brian Aldiss, with Sarah Pinborough serving as Mistress of Ceremonies. Other attending authors within the fantasy arena include the likes of James Barclay, Tom Lloyd, MD Lachlan, Steven Erikson, Juliet McKenna (who I still haven’t forgiven for nearly twisting my arm off at BristolCon) and oh so many more.
The British Fantasy society is traditionally quite horror orientated, so it’s very nice to be involved. No information yet on what precisely I’ll be doing but, if previous con experience is to be believed, it’ll be along the lines of some panels, an interview and Q&A and – oh, I don’t know – a load of talking shite in a bar.
Look forward to seeing some of you there, maybe…
