FantasyCon 2011 - September 30th to October 2nd

Sarah Pinborough
FantasyCon 2011
Mistress of Ceremonies
So, in a fit of excitement several weeks ago I bought a (Satur)day ticket to FantasyCon 2011 in Brighton, just a quick train-trip along the coast.

The programme looks great - readings and master-classes; some inspiring names - Ramsay Campbell, Christopher Paolini, the collector Stephen Jones and so - so many more. The Mistress of Ceremonies is the very gorgeous and talented author Sarah Pinborough.

And suddenly it's here; just a few days away. I haven't received my ticket yet - but I've had confirmation, so that means something - doesn't it?

Anyway, I have no idea what to expect and being so shy and retiring (shut up) am a little nervous about socialising. There's always wine, of course - but then again, there's always wine. Better take some water.

As it happens I'm really looking forward to it. If only I'd had the time to buy something new to wear (I am a girly after all) but looks like it'll be the usual.

Wish me luck!


  1. Oohh.. sounds like fun! Wishing you a good time, Lily!


  2. When there's wine, there's a good time. Just remember what a cool and gifted writer you are and have fun.

  3. enjoy! Doesn't matter what you wear but who you are and what you project! Let us know all about it when you get back, please!!!!

  4. Have a great day, Lily, and do give us the lowdown when you get back.

  5. It was great! I'll be back in a while with the lowdown as well as a fab competition to win a signed, pre-release copy of THE horror bible - Stephen Jones' new Mammoth Book of Horror - especially for you.


Lily Childs is a writer of horror, esoteric, mystery and chilling fiction.

If you see her dancing outside in a thunder storm - don't try to bring her in. She's safe.
