There is a fascinating array of speakers including many whose works I have cited in my own books and research. For example Mike Dash has produced excellent archival work on Spring-Heeled Jack, banishing the myths perpetrated by Peter Haining; Dr David Clarke has not only written on folklore but is the (co) author of some of the most clear-eyed books on UFOs, particularly the British experience, based on meticulous research through government files in the National Archives. I am also interested in hearing more about Slender Man, who infiltrated the online community a few years ago.
I hope to have books for sale throughout the day.
I imagine tickets will go fast, so make sure you get one.
