Brian and I will be attending WHC in Austin, TX from April 28–April 31. Brian is a Special Guest, and we both have readings and are participating in the Mass Signing. Below is where we’ll be, if you’d like to stop by and say hello.
THURSDAY, APRIL 28
Panel–How Much Money Do We Make?

How To Break In To Comics
4:00 PM Saturday, April 30–Phoenix Central
Steve Niles, Joe Hill, Brian Keene, Joe Lansdale, James Chambers
Comics are fun! Comics are colorful! Comics are…gross? The rise of an adult audience for comics means that horror is back in all its four-panel glory, but what does it take to write for the comics industry? Do you need art skills, or an artist of your own? Can a beginner get a crack at established characters? No cliffhangers here, we’ll just tell you!
Things We Used To Care About
5:00 PM Saturday, April 30–Dezavala
Brian Keene (M), Chad Savage, Lois Gresh, Kelly Laymon, Rain Graves, Chad Hensley
Splatterpunk versus quiet horror! Dare you publish a story on the Internet?? Which email newsletter should I read first? Will role-playing games save the genre? And how’s about all those great new small presses that are being founded every month? On this panel we talk about the old controversies and contentious issues that history has solved for us.
7:30–10:00 PM Saturday, April 30–Phoenix Central
