It's only a month away...

Hi All,

Somebody said that very thing to me this morning and at this point it's difficult to know whether you should be excited or just plain nervous. Nerves seem to be getting the upper hand at the moment but I'm sure that will all change in due course...

Anyway, on to the latest news to date...

The flyers arrived on Wednesday last week (hooray) and I spent most of Thursday afternoon with one of my trustier volunteers posting around 4500 of them to locations around the country. Still a fair few to go but plenty of time to shift them yet!!

Unfortunately one of our local authors, Steve Dean, has been forced to drop out of the event. This will be prompting a bit of a rejig of the day's programming. Expect full details both here and on the Alt.Fiction webpage ( soon.

The Leicester events that I have been involved in seem to have gone really well so far. Thursday's Fright Night was attended by about 70 people and the Friday workshop with James Barclay was also fully booked. Thursday was really enjoyable- three great stories from Tony Richards, Sarah Pinborough and Ramsey Campbell. The feedback also seemed really positive, which is really pleasing.

The Sunday Alt.Fiction film showing will be Mulholland Drive, which will be introduced by Ramsey Campbell. Time TBC but it will be mid-early afternoon. It's a good way to extend the reach of Alt.Fiction and hopefully we'll be able to work more closely with Metro Cinema for the event next time around.

That's all for now- keep your eyes peeled for another update soon.

Many Thanks
