Sci-Fi Saturday Night gives Bad Apple a rave review!

SFSN Zombrarian

Sci-Fi Saturday Night’s Zombrarian.

Sci-Fi Saturday Night’s The Dome and Zombrarian gave Bad Apple rave reviews! Zombrarian noted “You know a book is really good horror when it leaves you feeling set adrift and raw—and Bad Apple did that for me,” and Dome wrote “The characters are real and that reality is stark, bitter, and at the same time maddeningly beautiful.” To read both reviews, visit SFSN’s site at http://www.scifisaturdaynight.com/?p=6592.

Get horrified, play old Atari at the Queen City Kamikaze Anime & Video Game Convention this weekend!

Nathan and I will be at the New England Horror Writers table at the Queen City Kamikaze Anime & Gaming Convention this Saturday, Feb. 18, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. at Manchester Memorial High School in Manchester, New Hampshire.

There are lots of interesting activities slated throughout the day; according to an interview with the presenters I heard recently on the Sci-Fi Saturday Night podcast, there will be television screens playing movies (rumor is the NEHW table will have horror movies running all day nearby), gaming consoles available for play (there’s going to be an attempt at beating Jimmy Fallon’s 9 consoles in under a minute record–although someone named Ryan Sullivan logged in at 13: http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2399510,00.asp), music, and other interactive areas.

New England Horror Writers will also be presenting two panels: “Women in Horror,” which will start at 4 p.m. and be moderated by writer Stacey Longo. Panelists will be me and writers Tracy Carbone and Alyn Day. At 4:50 p.m., Jason Harris will moderate “From the Apocalypse to Zombies: Where’s Horror Heading?” Panelists will be writers K. Allen Wood, Rob Watts, Stacey Longo, and occult specialist Nathan Schoonover.

I’m looking forward to seeing some of my NEHW peeps again—there’s always a bit of a break once Anthocon, in November, ends, usually until late winter or early spring. This is going to be a great weekend, so please join us!

SKELETONS SWINGS BY SCI-FI SATURDAY NIGHT!

Sci-Fi Saturday Night wrote a great review of Skeletons in the Swimmin’ Hole—Tales from Haunted Disney World, noting “It is very cool to read horror fiction that gives you something that you can work with as a reader. These stories don’t just beat you over the head with a bloody arm, instead they hold that arm out to shake your hand.”[1] As if that weren’t enough, I had a blast on their December 17 show, getting a chance for the first time to talk about the impetus behind each story.
