Rob Holdstock
I met Rob Holdstock for the first time in 1991, at the Harrogate Mexicon, the first convention I attended. Although I'd published a couple of stories in Interzone, and sold a couple more, I was still pretty much a nobody as far as the wider SF world was concerned. Despite this, Rob Holdstock (who was at the bar with Chris Evans) bought me a pint and talked to me like I was one of the gang. I never forgot that. I was out of the country for most of the next 18 years so we only met on a couple of subsequent occasions (it may only have been once - I recall sharing a taxi with Rob on a rainy London night) but he remained that same nice, approachable bloke I met in Harrogate all those years ago.
