Just got back from WHC Toronto. It was fantastic! Got to talk to Joe R Lansdale and Gary Braunbeck as well as have late night chats in the bar with Chris T, Stu Young, John Travis, Dave Price, Mick Curtis and his wife Debs. Gary F and Gary M were staying with friends in the city so it was a shame that they missed the late night Guinness.
The Canadians from the Ramsey Campbell board, Adriana Donovan ,Donald Pulker, Steve Strantzas and Michael Kelly looked after us very well and we visited the CN Tower, a television and radio station, a comic bookstore and Mount Pleasant Cemetary. My date for the Stokers was Torontarian Ian Rogers who was one of the first writers I chatted with eighteen months ago. (Not forgetting that cheeky Steve Redwood who enticed me into WOW.)
Great to meet Ramsey and Jenny again, Peter Crowther and Nicki. Briefly spoke to Conrad Williams, Paul Kane and Marie O' Regan. Finally caught up with Sarah Pinborough and wished Mark Morris every success with Cinema Macabre. Stephen Volk - was a pleasure to talk with. The panels, readings and the Stoker banquet were great! Ramsey read in the candlit cafe bar which was of course popular and I got to listen to many varied opinions from the panels during the Convention. I hope to catch up with more of you at Alt. Fiction and BFSCon.
Managed to catch up with R.J. Cavender, Bailey Hunter and many more eds and writers too. Chatted with Gill Ainsworth and Kimberley and Jason Sizemore....too many excellent people to list.

Hope you've a million pictures and stories to tell. Sounds like it was well cool from the reviews I've read so far - I mean, Joe R. Lansdale, F. Paul Wilson: WOW!
All the best,

I'm rubbish at taking photos Ian and I don't do the - I want my photo taken with the great writers - however I had a couple of brief conversations with Joe Lansdale and Gary Braunbeck which I'll remember forever. If you go to BFSCon - I'll tell you about them!
