I promised a whole host of announcements this week, and our Facebook and Twitter followers will already have picked up out HP Lovecraft theme for Saturday evening, including some fantastic screenings with Mayhem Film Festival - as a huge Lovecraft fan, I'm really excited about this, and also about working again with the guys from one of the region's top film fests.
I'm also very pleased to announce another batch of speakers and authors attending this event - this will all but complete the line-up, although I'm still hoping to announce another special guest or two as the event closes in! So today's fantastic five are...
Horror and dark fantasy writer MARIE O'REGAN
Black Library author and editor NICK KYME
Angry Robot Managing Director and Publisher MARC GASCOIGNE
Psychological horror author NIKI VALENTINE
Black Library editor and author CHRISTIAN DUNN
As you can see, some more great names involved in a line-up that I must say I'm really excited about. Unfortunately I do also have to announce one cancellation, as horror author SIMON CLARK will no longer be able to attend the event. However we still have a wonderful line-up of horror talent, including not only those names above but also SARAH PINBOROUGH, SIMON BESTWICK and PAUL KANE.
Keep your eyes peeled on the blog, as I'll shortly be making the first announcement on our raffle shortly, plus fingers crossed some more news on special guests.
