So here it is, almost two weeks after the fact, and I’m just now writing about World Horror.Â I apologize for taking so long.Â The folks who made opening ceremonies know how life smacked me upside the head a few hours into the convention.
All in all, the World Horror Convention was great.Â Lee Thomas and I wanted to make a con that would be helpful to writers of every level, and I think we accomplished that.Â Even the busload of fratboys who swarmed the hotel Friday and Saturday night couldn’t bring us down.
I want to thank our guests.Â Each and every one of them was amazing, and the help they gave us throughout the convention was invaluable.Â I’ll always remember Joe Hill and Steve Niles approaching me after opening ceremonies to ask if I could handle staying at the convention.Â Amazing people, every last one of them.
I also need to thank our committee and volunteers.Â We threw a very good convention, with every event running as smoothly as possible, and we owe that to the committee and their years of planning and preparation and to our volunteers for helping with everything from set-up to registration to getting the margarita machine up and running.
Now, I need to go back to writing. For the first time in months, I have the time to put some words down. See you all soon.
