I love going to scifi/horror.fantasy conventions but living on this small island, I don't get to nearly as many as I would like due to the time /expense involved in travel. But there's two this month that I am going to, as a guest author: Octocon and Games Fest.
First up is Octocon
and this will be my third one. I'm really looking forward to this and meeting up a great bunch of authors/artists and filmakers. Mike Carey (Writer for Marvel and DC comics, as well as several other comics publishers. Author of the Felix Castor novels), is the Guest of Honour. So if you're in Dublin next weekend, check it out at the Camden Court Hotel, Camden Street. I'll be launching my new VAMPIRE APOCALYPSE book, FALLOUT, on Saturday around 11am, talking about my latest release, THE ESTUARY and the forthcoming VAMPIRE APOCALYPSE graphic novel (due out 2011).
Also, there's an interview
up at the Octocon website with yours truely:-)
Games Fest is on in Watford in the UK on Saturday 24th: From the humble origins of a gaming collective to a one-day convention encompassing RPG’s, Board Games, CCG’s, War Games, Comics, Books, Film & Video gaming.
