There’s probably not much that Robert Englund (best known for A Nightmare on Elm Street) and I have in common except for V in the 1980s (he was in it and I loved it)—and that we’ll both be at the same event in October: ROCK AND SHOCK, from October 14-16 at the DCU Center & the Palladium in Worcester, Mass.

Rock and Shock is a fan convention and features celebrities, movies, vendors, and Q&A panels as well as musical concerts. This year’s celebrity guest list is extensive and includes Ace Frehley and Lance Henriksen.

I’ll be at the New England Horror Writers table along with other members including:

T.J. May (Ill Conceived)
Matt Bechtel (House of Pain)
Bob Booth (Phantom—NeCon Classic Horror)
Scott Goudsward (Shadows Over New England)
Stacy Longo (Dark Matter Heart)
Jason Harris (NEHW Newsblog)
Geoffrey Goodwin
Danny Evarts (Shroud Magazine)
