On the 2nd and 3rd of November 2012, Lowestoft in Suffolk will host its very first horror fiction convention â€˜Autumn: Horror in the Eastâ€™.
It will be a chance for lovers of horror fiction to meet many authors of some of the best horror fiction available in the UK today. Friday evening will be an introduction and â€˜Haunted Lowestoftâ€™ talk presented by Ivan Bunn, the foremost expert of the supernatural in and around Lowestoft. Events for Saturday will include readings, panels and signings. We are also pleased to announce that Joseph Dâ€™Lacey will be launching his latest book of short stories â€˜Splintersâ€™ two days early at this event.
Lowestoft was the scene for the final book (Them or Us) in David Moodyâ€™s â€˜Haterâ€™ trilogy. As such, it was felt that Lowestoft, the most Easterly point in the UK, is perfect to host an event of this calibre.
Attending authors include; Adam Baker (Outpost, Juggernaut), Jasper Bark (Tomes of the Dead, Dead Air), Ivan Bunn (A Trial of Witches, Haunted Lowestoft), Henry Baker (Haunted Lowestoft), Simon Coleby (Art in 2000AD, DC & Games Workshop), Joseph Dâ€™Lacey (Meat, Splinters), Joseph Freeman (The Lost and the Lonely, Vermilion Dawn), Andrew Hook (And God created Zombies, Nitrospective), Paul S. Huggins (Zombies Ghosts a Psycho & a Fight), Iain McKinnon (Domain of the Dead, Remains of the Dead), Adam Millard (Only in Whispers, Dead West), David Moody (Autumn, Hater), Sean T Page (War against the Walking Dead, Metahorde) and Conrad Williams (One, Loss of Separation).
The event will be presented at the â€˜The Aspire Centreâ€™, Lowestoftâ€™s premier conference facility, which is located at the Deneâ€™s High School, Yarmouth Road. Start time on Saturday is 10am and Admission is FREE.
