Marie O’Regan and Paul Kane
Spring is in the air.
We followed up our last successful meeting of the UK Chapter of the HWA in October—which welcomed the likes of Neil Gaiman, Mike (M.R.) Carey, Joe Hill, Stephen Jones, Kim Newman, Christopher Fowler, to mention just a few—with another pub meet at the same venue, John Constantine’s local: The Angel in London.
The latest meeting took place in February, and attendees included Fleet of Knives author Gareth Powell, fresh from his signing around the corner at Forbidden Planet, and Lydia Gittins from Titan Books. Also stopping by were regulars such as Phil Sloman, Theresa Derwin, author of Hekla’s Children James Brogden, Anna Taborska, Chris Amies, and Robin Furth, who writes Stephen King’s Dark Tower comics.
We’ll be organising further events throughout the year as well as looking at how we can improve the UK Chapter further, and we’re also busy at work on StokerCon UK (https://stokercon-uk.com) for 2020; our Mistress of Ceremonies, author A.K. Benedict, has already been announced, with further announcements to be made throughout the year.
