Another year and another FantasyCon is over. This years was the highest attended and there seemed to be an extra buzz around the Con. It was good to see many new faces and Brighton turned out to be the perfect place for the event with weather that made you forget it was October and think it was the middle of summer. Though being from up North the heat was a bit of a shock and the fact that the hotel air-con was broken didn’t help!
I’m not going to write a full report on the goings-on at the Con as I’m desperately trying to catch up with emails and work, so suffice it to say that I had a fantastic time going to readings, catching up with old friends and making new acquaintances, and even came away with a couple of British Fantasy Awards for Best Artist and Best Non-Fiction for my art book, but now, unfortunately, it’s back to the real world and back to work…
For the success of the Con, a lot of credit has to go to organizers Paul Kane and Marie O’Regan and their team of volunteer helpers who were always on hand to help and make sure the weekend ran smoothly. So a big thanks to all of them!
