Elf Fantasy Fair 2008 Apr 19, 2008
When you like fantasy the Elf Fantasy Fair defenitely is worth a visit, its the largest fantasy event in Europe. For me the main attraction are the writers that give lectures and sign their books. This year Robin Hobb was there and a new young dutch writer Thomas Olde Heuvelt. I went to their lectures and there was a writersforum, all of them where very interesting. Besides writers there are also actors from fantasy movies that are signing and giving lectures this year there where: Shane Rangi, Ian Whyte,..

The area where the fair is helt is very nice, castle De Haar has a very nice park wich is also very nice to visit on a "normal" day.

I went to the Elf Fantasy Fair in 2002 too, it was at the same place, since then the fair has grown a lot. There are a lot more stands compared with 2002 and also a lot more visitors. More stands also means that there are more different things to see and there is something to do/see for all fantasy fans (LARP, anime, etc)

A big difference with 2002 is also the amount of people that come dressed up as a fantasy figure, there are a lot more of them now. Some people just visit the fair to take pictures of those people :)

When there are some good writers next year I will defenitely go again.

I have only read The Ice dragon by GRRM, but I have the first part of A Song of Ice and Fire, just haven't had time to read it yet.
