Why did it take so long to invite Darren to this World Horror Convention, since this is his first year going since it was formed in 1991?

Probably a variety of reasons, really. My best guess would be he possibly has before and this is the first time he’s been able to fit it into his schedule; or, seeing as how it is an American event and Darren’s not as well known on this side of the pond, it took a few years for his name to come up…

But one year, this World Horror Convention took place in the UK, one of Darren’s homes. The 2007, 2009 and 2010 editions of this event took place outside of the Untied States. The 2007 and 2009 events took place in Canada, and the 2010 event took place in the UK, one of Darren’s homes, so it has taken place outside of that country.

True, but it is an event organized inside the boarders of the United States. One would think that if it is hosted in a particular country, that they would make an effort to include local talent. In that situation - the possibility of being unable to accept an invite makes the most sense.
