The last in a series! Collect them all!
Ahem. Towards the end of the month, On Wednesday, October 28, to be precise, I’ll be at the WORD Bookstore in Brooklyn as part of Alex Houston’s Dead Dreamers: A Celebration of Weird Fiction. I’ll be reading my fiction alongside the honey badger himself, Laird Barron, and the tremendous Livia Llewellyn. In addition, Ryan Britt will be discussing a selection from one of the recent NYRB reissues, and Tobias Carroll will be reading from and discussing Thomas Ligotti’s work. It should be a blast. I’m thrilled to be at WORD, which is a terrific bookstore, and I’m thrilled to be reading with Livia, especially, who is a powerhouse of a reader. Seriously, if you have not heard her read her fiction, you must rectify this oversight as soon as is possible. You can find information about the event here.
The very next day, Thursday, October 29, I’ll be taking part in this year’s H.P. Lovecraft Forum at SUNY New Paltz. For the twenty-eighth year, noted Lovecraft scholar Bob Waugh is putting on a combination of scholarly talks and fiction readings from 7:00-9:00pm in room 1010 of the Jacobsen Faculty Tower. This is the only thing of its kind in the country, and free, to boot.
Then, on the day after that, Friday, October 30, I’ll be taking part in Dark Harvest: An Evening of Horror and Speculative Fiction, which is a group reading at Inquiring Minds Bookstore in New Paltz. I’ll be there with Laird, as well as Phoebe North, Nicole Quinn, Gabriel Squailia, and Nicole Kornher Stace. You can find more information about the event here.
And I think that’s it for October. If you can make any of these events, I encourage you to do so; I’m thrilled to be part of each and every one of them. And please, say hello.
