Last weekend I was in Scarborough at the British Fantasy Society’s FantasyCon. I travelled up from Kent with fellow writer Danny Rhodes, who’s had horror stories published in Black Static and Cemetery Dance, but is also an acclaimed contemporary novelist (his novel Fan about the Hillsborough disaster is wonderful).
It was quite a trek up north, but I was quite impressed by Scarborough. Very nice seaside town. And the convention itself, held at the Grand Hotel, was brilliant.
