HAVE YOU EVER wanted to spend 50 minutes with your favourite authors, editors and publishers for coffee and biscuits and a relaxed and informal round-the-table chat about their lives?

Well, now you can! World Fantasy Convention 2013 is offering attendees the opportunity to meet with top authors and editors in a series of informal Kaffeeklatsches with some of the biggest names in the genre.

On the Thursday afternoon we are presenting a special series of "Publisher Kaffeeklatsches". Please note that these are not pitch sessions, but they will allow you to talk with leading figures from four major publishing imprints from around the world about what they do and what they are currently looking for.

Constable & Robinson All these events will be held during the day in the "Library" room, just off the main lobby of the Hilton hotel. The maximum number of people in each group will be 20 and places are pre-booked on a first-come basis.

We will indicate on the website when a session is full. Although we will not be holding a waiting list, you can enquire at the WFC Registration Desk if a particular event is not fully booked no less than an hour prior to the time it is scheduled.

Do not miss this unique opportunity to spend some personal time with some of the biggest stars of fantasy, horror and science fiction literature.
