Although I’ve not written anything remotely good enough to feature in any Best of anthologies (yet), I will be attending the mass Halloween signing at FORBIDDEN PLANET LONDON MEGASTORE, where the greatest names in British horror will gather downstairs to sign their terrifying tomes on Saturday, October 25, from 1:00–2:00 pm.

Other titles by the featured authors will also be available for signing.
For those who cannot make it into London, you can pre-order your signed books through the FORBIDDEN PLANET website.
Following the signing, many of the authors will move across to The Bloomsbury Tavern, 236 Shaftsbury Avenue, where I’m stepping in to help THE BRITISH FANTASY SOCIETY host an Open Day in the Upstairs Bar – one day only to cover for Richard. You will be able to socialise with the writers, artists and publishers into the early evening. There WILL be a raffle of books, and I might bring one or two ‘nasty’ surprises too).
So, please come along and join us on Saturday the 25th for THE GREATEST HALLOWE’EN HORROR SIGNING EVER!
