Anyone want to make a Brighton beach memory?

No, that's not the Taj Mahal. It's the Royal Pavilion in Brighton (UK), which it looks like I will not be seeing this year. Is anyone planning to attend the 2013 World Fantasy Convention in Brighton? Our plans have changed, and we now have two memberships that we would like to sell for what we paid for them. Since we signed on at WFC San Diego, we only paid $120 USD each, which is much cheaper than they're going for now (£125, which is almost $190, USD).


There's a really nice guest line-up this year, including Richard Matheson, Richard Christian Matheson, Joanne Harris, Joe Hill, Alan Lee, Brian Aldiss , and Tessa Farmer, with China Miéville as the MC. And since it's in Britain, they're not just "Guests of Honor," they're "Guests of Honour"!

Anyone who is interested, message me or post a comment. Sigh.
