Hi there, my stats have been booming on people looking for snippets at what happens at FFF3 yesterday. I spent so long loading up photos on Facebook I didn’t really think to do it here but would’ve got round to it. So how was the fest? Quite simply put it was the best yet, largely responsible to this man Oliver McNeil bringing a live interactive version of House Of Hell. Armed with three actors, Alexander Hunt, Richard Alan and Emily Carding, guests got to work together exploring the creepy House Of Drumer. Better still, I got to try his brandy and those props were real 😆
Jam and The World Of Legend’s Olly McNeil.
The show was over an hour of pure joy and horror, with Steve Jackson himself striking the Hell Demon at the end with the fabled Kris knife.
As usual there was an auction with Steve and Ian selling off personal FF possessions, I managed to bag this beauty, a Trolltooth Wars flyer from 1989 signed by Steve, Ian and cover artist Chris Achilleos.
Ian Livingstone’s new book Assassins Of Allansia was available in hardback form so it was mandatory I got hold of one, and after a quick word with Ian’s son Jack I managed to bag a numbered copy which is a shared obsession (or not) between Ian and I which was pleasant to know. Now I can tell my Mrs it’s not just me 😉
Of course a bunch of the artists and illustrators were there. First and foremost, the original Warlock Of Firetop Mountain and regular Russ Nicholson, whom gave me permission to create that t-shirt I’m wearing. For me, that particular drawing of Zagors ghoul is the very icon of FF, I’m glad you like yours too Russ!
