Tartarus Press will play a large part in the proceedings. We will be exploring the boundaries where the ghostly and the supernatural meet the psychological and the mystical. We aim to turn the spotlight on Arthur Machen in particular; plus Elizabeth Jane Howard and Robert Aickman, and we will be showing film(s) relating to their work. We can confirm that we will be showing the new film of "The Happy Children" by Machen, the TV adaptation of Howard's "Three Miles Up", and we are negotiating to show "The Hospice" by Aickman.

We will have a number of guests including Mark Valentine and Reggie Oliver who will help furnish us with a highly informed, urbane take on the supernatural fiction genre.
Additionally, we also hope to launch the publication of a new edition of We Are for the Dark by Robert Aickman and Elizabeth Jane Howard.
