World Fantasy, Forbidden Planet takeover, CARRIE in SFX, and the Italian EMPIRE STATE

Just a quick one as I’m off to Brighton for World Fantasy. I’m not appearing on any panels, nor do I have a reading, but I might pop in to the mass author signing, which takes place on Friday 1st November, 8.30-10.00pm in the Oxford/Cambridge Suite. If you can’t find me there, I’ll be around the place the whole weekend! In particular, Titan are hosting a carnival party on Saturday 2nd November, 4-6pm in the Regency Suite. The Burning Dark isn’t out until March next year, but I’ll be joining the other Titan authors there!

Full programme details are available here.

As a convention prequel, tonight is the Angry Robot Halloween Takeover at the Forbidden Planet megastore in London! From 6-7pm, you can come and meet me, Wesley Chu, Joseph D’Lacey, Anne Lyle, James A Moore, Emma Newman, David Tallerman, Mike Shevdon and Kaaron Warren. This is a rare opportunity to meet some Angry Roboteers who are not based in the UK!

Recently I re-read Stephen King’s Carrie for SFX magazine’s Book Club feature. It will appear in the next issue, but in the meantime readers are invited to send in their thoughts on King’s debut novel. A selection of reader comments will appear alongside my article in SFX #243.

Finally, it appears you can buy the Italian edition of Empire State now! I can’t wait to see it myself, actually.

See you in Brighton!
