Forthcoming Events

With 2017 almost two thirds done, I thought it timely to let you know which events I shall be attending in the forthcoming months.


Friday 1st September - Fighting Fantasy Fest 2 & You Are The Beer-o presents: Stout of the Pit
The world's first Fighting Fantasy pub quiz and a warm-up to the next day's Fighting Fantasy Fest 2. FF fan James Aukett is hosting the event and I will be Quizmaster (rather than Dungeonmaster) for the evening. Tickets can be purchased here and all profits will go to Prostate Cancer UK.

Saturday 2nd September - Fighting Fantasy Fest 2
A day-long event to mark 35 years of the world's premier gamebook series. Featuring Guests of Honour Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone, Special Guest Artist Iain McCaig, as well as authors Marc Gascoigne, Peter Darvill-Evans, Jamie Thomson, and Keith P Phillips, artists Robert Ball, Malcolm Barter, Leo Hartas, Alan Langford, Tony Hough, Jim Burns, and Pete Knifton, comic creators Andi Ewington and Simon Coleby, and Your Truly. If you follow my blog and don't know about this event yet, then I really don'y know what to say, other than tickets are still available here.

Saturday 30th September - Dragondaze
Dragondaze is all about Playing Games, Dressing Up, Having Fun and Raising Money for Charity, at a one day convention celebrating all things gaming-related. It's about dressing up as your favourite character and meeting and making friends who like the same things. There will be many things to see and play. All profits from this Convention will be going to the Barnardos Young Carers, a charity that helps young carers cope and give them days out as a break, and Sparkle a charity that funds a local Children's Hospital and programs for Disabled Children. And I'll be there selling my ACE Gamebooks Alice's Nightmare in Wonderland and The Wicked Wizard of Oz. You can find out more here.


Saturday 21st October - GamesFest 2017
GamesFest is a one day tabletop gaming convention based in Hertfordshire that aims to introduce new tabletop games alongside some well loved classics in an informal atmosphere. Gamesfest events continue to gather fans and plaudits as they encompass war-gaming, RPGs, board games, comics, cosplay and much more. We are now firmly established in the annual convention calendar providing a platform for new entrants and a great day out for all those attending. So come along participate and try something new. And I'll be there selling my ACE Gamebooks Alice's Nightmare in Wonderland and The Wicked Wizard of OzYou can find out more here.


Friday 3rd - Sunday 5th November - ArmadaCon
I shall be one of the guests at this year's ArmadaCon, a Sci-Fi and Fantasy Multimedia Convention that's been running in Plymouth since 1988. Other conventions tend to be focused one medium or one subject within that medium but the organisers of AramdaCon found that fans find this format restrictive as most fans like more than one type of medium irrespective of subject matter. For more information about events at ArmadaCon, follow this link.


Saturday 2nd December - Dragonmeet
I am planning on attending Dragonmeet again this year, with my ACE Gamebooks in tow, as well as YOU ARE THE HERO Parts 1 & 2. You can find out more about the event here and I will keep this blog updated regarding my attendance at the con in due course.

Maybe I'll see you at one of these events before the end of the year...
