Guest of Honour Appearances

2008: FANTASYCON 2008, September 19-21, 2008, Nottingham, England

I enjoyed this year's FantasyCon even more than last year's—and I was a Guest of Honour then! From the various panels to the Awards Banquet, through the Raffle to the liveliest British Fantasy Society AGM for years, this was a convention that had a genuine energy to it. I even did business. The Mammoth Book of Best New Horror signing quickly sold out, and the number of writers, artists and publishers attending ensured that there was always plenty to talk about. Added to that, I won an award. And I've finally started to work out where the good restaurants are in Nottingham! Marie O'Regan, Paul Kane, Vicky Cook and their dedicated team of helpers are to be congratulated for bringing the convention up to a level where those who follow them will undoubtedly be able to build upon their success. Thank you to everyone who helped make my weekend such a terrific experience.

2005: ARCANA 35, October 7-9, 2005, St. Paul, Minnesota, USA.

Arcana is one of the best-kept secrets in the horror field. Held around late September or early October in St. Paul, Minnesota, this small, inexpensive yet very friendly "Convention of the Dark Fantastic" has been going since the early 1970s, when a group of H.P. Lovecraft/Weird Tales fans started hanging out together at annual gatherings. The 2005 event, held at its long-tern venue, the Holiday Inn Express, Bandana Square which is built on the site of an historic railroad station (and retaining the original tracks running through the lobby).
