This Friday it's FantasyCon - a booze-soaked gathering of genre writers, publishers and fans in a seedy hotel in Nottingham. I have a reasonably full dance card this year, so for anyone who's interested here's what I'll be up to:
I arrive around 6pm on Friday, so have kept my time open and will be in the bar socialising and talking bollocks. Then it's down to business...
Saturday 18th September
10:30am - Reading
1pm - The End of the Line launch & signing event (Solaris)
2pm - Never Again launch & signing event (Gray Friar Press)
4pm - Cinema Futura launch & signing event (PS Publishing)
10:00am - Panel: What's New - how important is originality in horror fiction? (Me, Mark Morris, Rio Youers, Tom Fletcher and Joe D'Lacey.)
I hope to see some familiar faces, and meet some new ones in the bar!
In other news, I've been interviewed here by Alan Kelly: Q&A
Cracking interview, Gary and although I never thought of it, Paddy Considine would be absolutely perfect!
Thanks, mate. I actually had a younger Robery Carslyle (as he looks in the gangster film FACE)in mind when I first created the character of Thomas Usher, but now I see him as either Roth or Consadine. Roth's character in the excellent TV show LIE TO ME is actually pretty close to how I imagine Usher - that slouching walk, the cynical manner, the emotional coldness.
