TITANCON, BELFAST.

By 5th October 2013Uncategorised

Here are a few snaps from the mighty TITANCON convention, held each year in Belfast, Northern Ireland. The convention is primarily a tribute to, and celebration of, GAME OF THRONES. There is also an excellent genre literary strand at the same event, which is where I came in as a guest author at TITANCON 2013.

The event also featured a GOT Masquerade followed by an excellent folk set by the Hardbitten Fleabottom Swingtime Band. At the end of the set, band leader Jo Playford, did a special performance art and musical interpretation of HOUSE OF SMALL SHADOWS; if I am ever fortunate to have my books adapted into any other media, I doubt anything will be more bizarre, melodic or imaginative than this! Carrie with entrails and a bridal gown.
