    I loved reading about the Uncons as a young man but, being so young, never got to any.

    Now I would absolutely love to go.

    Seems a shame that the paranormal convention circuit in the States is absolutely huge but here...to my knowledge is pretty much negligible and yet many of the top speakers at the American ones are British writers and researchers.

    Does anyone know of any such conventions that happen in the UK?

    Huh, thanks for that. Looks good- and I'm always up for some Mongolian Death Worm action too ;) Really good value too.

    Probably a little early in the year for me though. And they need to sort their website out - proper amateur. Makes me think I'd pitch up there and it would just be some Nigerian there wanting my £12 :p

    Are you a leguminous ground crop?

    It is ultra-amateur. The very peak of 1990s hand-crafted HTML, made from flattened beercans and pipecleaners. I was expecting a gratuitous refresh tag, and a tuneless MIDI segment on the wrong cue.

    I like hand crafted HTML. :)

    I have nothing to do with the site, i'm just a speaker (though I co-ran the orgional Devon based Weird Weekend). Last year's event was great (and included a letter supposedly written by a ghost!)and there are some ace speakers on this year.

    There really are. Looks a great little event. Props to the organisers and all participating for making the effort.
