World Horror Convention, 2011

From Thursday 28th April I'll be in Auston, Texas for a few days attending the World Horror Convention, 2011.

Here's my official programme for the event:

Reading – Dark Arts Books Author Showcase Featuring Gary McMahon and S.G. Browne

1:00 – 2:00 PM, Friday April 29 – Robertson

Join host John Everson as Dark Arts Books presents readings from their latest anthology, SWALLOWED BY THE CRACKS.

Commonwealth Horror

3:00 PM Saturday, April 30 - Dezavala

Simon Stranzas, Brett Savory, Allyson Bird, Gary McMahon (m), Simon Clark

Does horror from the nations of the Commonwealth of Nations—Great Britain, Canada, Australia, etc. —read differently from horror from the US, or other parts of the world? Is there such a thing as a Commonwealth aesthetic, and if so, what is it? Do the non-Anglophone members of the Commonwealth such as Cyprus or Jamaica have a commonwealth aesthetic?


7:30 - 10:00 PM Saturday, April 30 - Phoenix Central

The rest of the time I'll be either in the bar or popping in and out of panels, so please, if you see me, come up and say hello. You could even buy me a drink, if you like. I don't bite. Honest.
