World Horror Convention – Brighton

March 18th, 2010 • Posted in Random Stuff |

The World Horror Convention in Brighton is a week away.  In fact as I type this, exactly a week from now I will be launching my new novella The Thief of Broken Toys from CZP Publications, along with other books from that fantastic publisher.

I haven’t been to a World Horror since Toronto three years ago, so I’m thoroughly looking forward to catching up with lots of friends, and making some new ones.  I’m hoping that the hotel serves some decent beer, not the usual Worthington Creamflow crap, but I’m reliably informed that there are some quality pubs nearby just in case.  I’m driving to Brighton on the Thursday, then leaving early on Sunday to drive straight to North Wales for a week away with my family here.  Really excited about all this fun in such a short time …

I’m also thrilled that there’ll be a COLDBROOK-themed goody in the goody bag, so keep your eyes peeled for that, and please corner me to sign it.

Here’s my World Horror schedule:


8-10pm – CZP Publications Book Launch

10pm onwards – PARTY PARTY PARTY


10-11am – Work for hire panel

noon-1pm – Mammoth Book of the Best of Best New Horror launch (containing my novella White)

1-2pm – Constable/Corsair drinks reception

3-4pm – reading with Mark Morris

7-9pm – mass signing

9pm onwards PARTY SOME MORE


evening – Stoker Banquet

And then some more PARTYING

If you’re there, please say Hi, and mine’s a pint of something real and aleish.

    If I understand this schedule correctly, you’ll be spending your time from Thursday at 8:00pm until Friday at 3:00 either drinking or partying (which probably includes some drinking, surely?), at which point you and Mark Mark Morris will be doing a reading?

    Following that hour, you’ll be either signing books, eating, or partying.

    So… do you ever actually write, or do you have an army of dwarfs churning out novels somewhere so you can go to events and drink your face off?

    I’m not being critical, only envious, you see.

    Fair ol’ trek from Brighton to Caernarvon, Tim… crikey moses!

    See you Thursday.

    Ian … this is time off from writing that I can scarce afford right now, so I figure I’ll party my way through the weekend to stop worrying about deadlines.

    And Chris, yeah … really looking forward to that drive.
