Got the news on the final GoH... Yes chaps, Clive Barker is now an official GoH for Fcon 2006! (Thud!)
... and messageboards are back down again. Will look for something more secure.

Honestly... they were only up 12 hours and how many spam posts? Too many! Oy and Vey.

Messageboards are back... should the idiot spammer types flock to fill it up with rubbish again, then I'll disable the boards again and look for some newer more secure solution. The current one is a freebie thing I get from the server peeps so the search for a replacement freeb may take a while.

BFS bits
Prism was mailed off this weekend, Dark Horizons, so I hear, is on it's way for layout. So it will appear soon. It's going to be bumper issue of roughly 180 pages to make up for its absence last year.
Also, don't forget, if you're in London this Friday the BFS Open Night is being held at the Devereaux. Usual time, all the details can be gotten from the BFS site or by checking out the the BFS messageboards Open Night thread.
(Or, indeed, from the news section in the latest Prism!)

There's also a slim chance that I'm going to be there for this one (and if that isn't enough to put you off, I don't know what is!)... it'll be my first one so be nice if I see you!
Andrew Hook and David Swann will be launching the latest Elastic title - The Last Days of Johnny North... so take some crispies to make them happy bunnies!

Will be catching up on outstanding H&N stuff in the next couple of days so if you're waiting to hear back from me on general email queries then hold tight. Haven't had a chance to read any submissions yet, in case that helps. Should be doing that in the next couple of weeks.
Messageboards still down as the spammers are relentless.

And Oh. My. Holy. F***!
Have just had confirmation about 2 more surprise GoHs. Surprise, as in, we thought we'd reached our limit with the 3 fab ones we'd already got - but no, one of these chaps is over on a tour for his latest book around Fcon time and his publisher asked if we wanted him.. so, sluts that we are, we said yes. Then there's this other chap. To be named in a few days at his request, but O.M.G.! The details will go up on the Fcon site shortly (and I really must get around to doing something on the fcon blog...) You definitely have to get in early for Fcon this year cos this may well be a sell out... :->
