Hi Jim - it was great. I drank and smoked too much, but when in Rome... :)

Ah, WHC 2010. A fantastic experience - loved it! Great to meet all the authors, get books signed and find that the Pitch Black session on Thursday wasn't going to be the Dragons' Den I thought it would be...the editors and agents were so damn nice. Even if the project wasn't right for them they spent time with you, talking about your work and showing real interest. One agent was interested in my novel and took the first three chapters away. Two of the small presses were also intrigued, another one I met later when talking to Simon Maginn in Smoker's Corner and I was fortunate enough to have one of the cover sheets and a synopsis with me. It's a shame Snowbooks wern't there, though. I'd love to have been able to have a chat with them.

The Friday night party at the Horace Bar on the pier was fantastic. Free bar all night - that's right, you didn't have to put your hand in your pocket once! Shame I lost my camera afterwards, but that's my own fault.

BTW - if anyone comes across a Sony cybershot DSC-P200 with pics of the convention on the memory stick please let me know. There's a video of my godson trying to say his first word, as well as snaps of the recent archery club make&mend session, so I'm gutted that I lost it. My fault for being drunk, though. (Hangs head in shame.)

Still, nice to know I wasn't the only alcoholic chainsmoker there... ;D

Sod the strike, what about the bloody parking?  Where in hell does one park in Brighton without going totally bankrupt?

Why has no one invented teleportation yet?  It's the only sensible option...  ;D

Sorry, Jen -- you'll have to pay for car parking (like me). The hotel doesn't have its own car park. Wonder if they have a discount arrangement...

Anyone know of any back streets where I can park without annoying any residents? I just got my car out of dry dock today and it left a gaping hole in the bank balance - I don't want to feed the meter machines with money better spent on booze'n'books! ;)

Hello, all

Adrian Chamberlin here - some of you may know me from the GNS and BHN boards, as well as the DF Underground.

Joined the BFS last week - can't believe I didn't do it sooner. Just waiting for my membership to arrive.

I'm also going to the World Horror Convention at Brighton this weekend, so looking forward to meeting some of you there.

All the best,
