Each author has a thread, and people like Tim Lebbon, Gary McMahon, Simon Bestwick, Allyson Bird, Conrad Williams, Vincent Chong, Weston Ochse, Ramsey Campbell and too many other wonderful folks to name have already signed up. You can read updates on their work, ask them whatever you like, or just chat over a beer. Sadly, you have to provide the beer yourself.
Pop along, register, and if you’re an author, bag a thread yourself. You don’t have to be a member of the BFS, although they’re a very cool bunch.
