Return from Baltimore

August 22nd, 2004 • Posted in News |

I arrived home from the Horrorfind Convention in Baltimore just a few days ago, and it’s only now I feel fully recovered! It was the most fun I’ve ever had at a convention, and I probably did the most business as well. That’s what I like:-)

Spent a lot of time with Rich SanFilippo, Chris Golden and Jim Moore, three great guys. I must publicly apologise to Chris for dragging him to see AVP, the biggest heap of steaming turd I have seen in a cinema for years. This film will kill both franchises dead, which is a real shame. Saying that Chris and I did have a good giggle at just how bad the film was, especially the ‘bullet-time’ face hugger. Oh my.

I succeeded in seeing the sunrise in on the Saturday morning, and retired to bed at 7:30 after a swim! Probably a bit silly after 18 hours drinking, but I’m still here, and the pool was very shallow. There were loads of room parties and drinking dens, and Rich and I seemed to find them all!

The dealers’ room was Heaven. Only one or two book dealers, but many more selling everything from rare DVDs to baby bibs with the timeless saying ‘What the fuck you looking at?’ I didn’t get that one for Daniel because Ellie can read, but I did buy him the ‘Satan Loves Me’ bib. Looking forward to using that one next time we pop out to the local pub.

I stayed with Keene and his lovely wife Cassie for a day after the convention, and had a fine, relaxing time. My week was ended with a little old lady puking on my trainers on the plane on the way home. I can’t complain. I’m a horror writer.
