Dragonmeet 2016

I had a great time yesterday at Dragonmeet. This year, as well as selling my own books - with both Alice's Nightmare in Wonderland and Shakespeare Vs Cthulhu proving popular - I was also manning the Fighting Fantasy stand, at which Steve Jackson did a couple of signings during the day.

Books, beautiful books.

Steve Jackson signing for fans.

It's always good to catch up with friends like James Wallis (who had just delivered the PDF of Alas Vegas to the Kickstarter backers in the early hours of the morning), Tony Hough (who presented me with a print of his artwork for Shakespeare Vs Cthulhu), and Graham Bottley (with whom I discussed plans for Advanced Fighting Fantasy at Fighting Fantasy Fest 2).

Tony Hough, Laylah, and Stuart Lloyd.

And it's always a pleasure to meet my readers, who ranged from ten to three-score years and ten.

This finely-mustachioed gentleman was asking if there were plans for a ninth Ulysses Quicksivler novel.

A talking of FFF2, that was the big news that we broke at the event yesterday. In case you haven't hear the news yourself, Fighting Fantasy Fest - the convention dedicated to all things Fighting Fantasy - will be returning in 2017, to mark the 35th anniversary of the publication of The Warlock of Firetop Mountain.
