Centurion's Ghost

I don't think I'll be drinking that particular ale for awhile...

Visited York last weekend for a semi-regular British Fantasy Society Open Night organised by Lee Harris - first time in the fair-city, where the likes of Ramsey Campbell, Peter Crowther, Simon Clark and Mark Morris, along with Allyson Bird and Peter (sorry, forgotten your surname) regaled us with ghostly readings.

Though it may sound like a bit of an excuse, but my staying power was tempered somewhat by a lack of sleep from Friday night, hence my unceremonious nodding off just after the meal (which sadly ended up elsewhere...)

Retired to my hotel room - somehow, since I vaguely recall walking but not actually up the stairs, opening the door, nor turning on the television since I woke up still wearing my glasses and the set tuned to BBC1.

Bumped into Allyson at breakfast, and then went for a wander around...










Very...











A very picturesque City, it must be said, though the rustic charm was tempered a little by the onslaught of the UK High Street - but Minster Park was very lovely.

Awesome pictures, Chris. 'Tis a shame I couldn't go. See you at Alt.Fiction?

I can remember some of the meal and I have a very hazy recollection of getting back to the hotel. The evening was fun though :>)
