Hi

Quick question for all staying at the Royal Albion for this year's FCon.

I've booked three rooms at the BFS rate, received confirmation numbers...but they wouldn't confirm it in writing or via email. Is this normal practice for the RA?

Thanks.  :)

Thanks guys... we're staying with The Mug House at present due to our wonderful host Mr. Craig Lockley, and his great venue.

Just waiting for confirmation on the date of the next one... get in touch if you want to launch a book at this or future events

Can't make it to London? Have a go at organising a local event... I can hear the Welsh crowd from here, Chris!

Hi Martin,

I'll drop you a line later about this - Dark Continents would like to launch P is for Phobia at the December event.

Expecting copies of the Summer Journal back at the end of this week, so mailing them next weekend ... watch out for 260 pages of BFS Goodness thunking through your letterboxes thereafter :)

David

Nice one! Can you include some sunshine with the books as well? It doesn't feel like summer at the moment.   ;D

I made the mistake of getting a PS3 last month. Dead Space 2 is on order, and knowing how much the first one (on the PC) sucked me in I can see that I'm not going to be getting much sunlight in the next few months...

I've heard some people say that the sequel is more combat-oriented, with less emphasis on the puzzles and exploration. Anyone find that?

Burke and Hare left me cold as well.

Paul isn't bad, but...just doesn't have the charm of the other films.

I've picked up a hardback copy of James Herbert's The Spear - the first edition, with the expanded prologue and the war time flashback scenes that had to be taken out due to a legal argument with Trevor Ravenscroft.

I can understand the wartime sequences taken out - the argument being that Herbert was under the impression that they were real, documented events and therefore a public source, when in actual fact it was all fiction on Ravenscroft's account - but that doesn't explain the cutting of the prologue.

It's told through the eyes of the centurion who pierced Christ's side with the spear - he does so because the Temple Guard are coming to break the legs and skulls of the crucified, as Jewish tradition forbids execution on the Sabbath. The centurion vows to give Christ a soldier's death, hence the piercing.

Any ideas why this was cut?

Not sure what to make of it...I've never read anything like it before, that's for sure!
