The weekend of March 28 2010, the sleepy town on the Sussex coast awoke to the hustle and bustle of a stinging chill. Every day life progressed as usual: students coming and going, trains leaving and arriving bearing passengers traversing the further reaches of experience, bleary eyed but excited, toting luggage and writing pads, waving at the eyeless ghost on Main Street and tipping our hats to long dead sailors, downing vodka infusions in the North Laines...wait, eyeless ghosts? Long dead sailors? Writing pads? Aaaaaaaahhhh yessssss....

This year's event list is already huge. Lets make it bigger shall we? Remember, no one will be allowed in without purchasing membership, but after that you make come and go as you please. I didn't see his name on the list, but I'm brining my copy of Drood for Dan Simmons to sign, you know, just in case. Once again, Neil Gaiman has made no mention of attending the convention. The Horror Convention is a publisher's convention designed by horror fans for horror fans for the specific purpose of getting together and celebrating our craft.
