Angry Robot at World Fantasy Con

We told you yesterday that we’d be at MCM Comic Con in London but that’s not the only place our authors are hanging out this weekend. Both Kaaron Warren (Slights) and James A Moore (The Last Sacrifice) will be at World Fantasy Con, with the former being Guest of Honour. Here’s where the pair will be all weekend. As always, programmes are subject to change so do double check your schedule on the day to see that all is in order.
