Edge-Lit - final schedule!

Hi Guys,

Ooh, shiny... yes, here it is, all wrapped up in a neat bow and looking lovely and presentable, our final schedule for Edge-Lit! Of course this all comes with the usual note on changes due to unforeseen circumstances etc - I don't see anything like that happening, but that's why they call them unforeseen I suppose... anyway, if there are any late alterations, they'll be flagged up plenty on the day.

You'll also notice that we've been lucky enough to add IAN CULBARD to our line-up, and a great late addition it is as well! Ian is a freelance artist, animation producer and writer who has worked on a number of acclaimed comic books, including his recent work on Lovecraftian classics At the Mountains of Madness and The Case of Charles Dexter Ward, as well as adaptations of Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes stories and Edgar Rice Burroughs' A Princess of Mars. Quite a CV, so we're delighted to have Ian on board for the day!

Anyhoo, enjoy... and any questions, as always, just drop them along to me at edgelit@hotmail.co.uk

Thanks a lot!

Alex
