Visi, Astro or Gogo?
Goths,I mean – I think the last lot are Welsh. I rather like Goths, if there are still any around. They’re gentle and read books.THE KITSCHIES are holding their Goth night tomorrow, presenting prizes in the form of tentacles to the year’s most progressive, intelligent and entertaining genre literature.
The evening features a selection of mysterious figures from literature, art and film, all ready to deliberate the most disturbing works of fantasy and horror. Guests include me, Tanith Lee, Jon Courtenay Grimwood, Marcus Hearn, S.D. Crockett, Suzanne McLeod, Jonathan Rigby, James Pearson, Emma Vieceli, Joel Meadows and John Kaiine.
I’m opening the evening by chatting with Hammer expert Marcus Hearn, who wrote the excellent ‘Vault of Hammer’ book, and there’ll be a short reading from Jon Courtenay Grimwood. The rest of the evening will be given over to mingling, friendly discussion and The Kraken’s finest rum.
Tickets are not necessary and the event is free to attend. Bring as many as you like. The event is on Thursday, 8 March from 6.00 pm to 8.00 pm at 100 Charing Cross Road.
