How I Spent My Weekend @ Spooky Empire Con

Tuesday, October 13th, 2009

Was going to write a con report but no one reads them (ha ha ha). So, here are highlights of the trip:

– Meeting and chatting with Linda Blair, Chris Sarandon, Tom Savini, Cerina Vincent, Brian Krause, Ed Gale, Adrienne Barbeau, John Landis, and others
– The Elvira impersonator. He had the biggest boobs I’ve ever seen
– Taking a picture of Christine — the deadliest car I’ve ever seen (that I was NOT behind the wheel of)
– “Accidentally” molesting Brian Krause when we were taking pictures (swoon – my new fantasy boyfriend, in addition to RR and SM)
– The pool party — picture drunken goths in their underwear (or less) singing karaoke (badly)
– All the panels — they were a lot of fun, and packed with intelligent and interesting attendees
– The Ripley’s Believe It or Not Museum
– DVD loot score!!!

Thanks to all the readers, fans, and other cool folks I met or chatted with this weekend. It was great meeting Tim, Adam, Alice, Gary, Anthony, Lelia and more (please forgive me if I’m forgetting names) and seeing Phil and Anya, Jeff and Lynn, Owl and Nancy. Special thanks to Owl for inviting us! It was a great time.

New Non-Fictiony Goodness

Thursday, September 10th, 2009

So, I recently wrote an essay on James Patterson  for the International Thriller Writers’ non-fiction book, THRILLERS: 100 MUST READS, edited by David Morrell (of Rambo fame, among many other books) and Hank Wagner and soon-to-be-published by Oceanview Publishing.  This book consists of essays from folks in the horror/thriller field discussing the merits of seminal works of the thriller genre.  I’m excited to be a part of this project.  It’s due out in hardcover in July 2010.  Ordering details as soon as I have them, for the interested.
