The con is also hosting this year's David Gemmell awards - and we're delighted that WRATH by our very own John Gwynne has been shortlisted for both the Legend Award for Best Novel, and the Ravenheart Award for Best Artwork (Click here to see more artwork by the wonderful cover designer, Paul Young)
