As stated in yesterdays post, Leicester Horror Con open their doors for a second time in March of next year. The good folks behind the convention decided that you deserved a Guest announcement already and as far as first guest announcements go.. It's a bloody good un..
Attending the Con next year is none other than Mike Carey (aka M R Carey), author of the best seller, The Girl With All the Gifts, which, as some of you may or may not know, was recently made in to a movie starring Gemma Arterton (Quantum of Solace, Clash of the Titans) and Paddy Considine (Dead Mans Shoes, The Worlds End). The Girl With All The Gifts tells the story of a young girl named Melanie, who is inflicted with a Zombie like virus but retains her humanity. Under the protection of a scientist and a teacher, they embark on a journey across a dystopian Britain in the hope of finding sanctuary from the Cannibalistic, Hungries that roam the streets.
Carey is also well known in the Comic book world, having worked for both DC and Marvel. Most notably, DC Imprint Vertigo, that included a 40 issue run on Hellblazer.
With this calibre of Guest out of the starting gate, Leicester Horror Con is shaping up to be a great event.
