StokerCon 2018
March 1 - 4, Providence, RI

Not only is Paperbacks from Hell nominated for a Stoker Award, but I'm all over StokerCon this year like some kind of plague. Here's a list of what I'm doing and where I'll be.

Thursday, 3/1

  • I'll be at Librarian's Day panels and events in the morning.
  • 4pm - Mr. Vampire and Bio Zombie: The Hong Kong Horror Film - Lisa Morton and I are talking about my favorite thing...Hong Kong horror movies! (State Suite 3)
  • 11pm - Alfredo - somehow someone convinced me to play a role in this dramatic reading of an H.P. Lovecraft play. (Garden Room)

Friday, 3/2

  • 1pm - Drilling Down: Getting Honest with Your Horror- I'm teaching this writing class and there's still room to sign up. Basically I'm just going to go Full Metal Jacket and scream at everyone until they gang up and murder me. (Salon 6)
  • 6pm - Summerland Lost - I'll be performing my all-shocking, all-true one man show about how drunk Victorian teenagers, Arctic explorers, and the ghost of Ben Franklin teamed up to solve the mystery of life after death. Special guest stars: shaved cats and biomechanical sex cults. (State Suite C)
  • 8pm - Final Frame Competition - I'm helping to host and judge the Final Frame Short Film Competition. God help us all.

Saturday, 3/3

  • 10am - Old Time Radio for Horror Authors - I'm on this panel and somehow I'm going to make sure we talk about Joe Frank. (Salon 2)
  • 11am - Promoting Your Book to Libraries and Book Sellers - I'm on this panel, talking about things I don't understand. (Salon 2)
  • 3pm - Paperbacks from Hell LIVE - last year I did this at Necronomicon in this very hotel. Now I'm much more polished, and ready to shock StockerCon. (Garden Room)

Sunday, 3/4

  • 10am - The Good, the Bad, and the Just Plain Crazy: Favorite Horror Novels of the 70's, 80's, & early 90s - I'm on this panel, but so is 80's paperback champ, Tom Monteleone, who's moderating! (State Suite A)

Paperbacks from Hell LIVE
Recycled Books, Denton, TX
Saturday, March 17

Paperbacks from Hell LIVE hits Texas like a twister! Come on out and hear the good news about Nazi leprechauns, buy some books, and get drunk (I hope).

Paperbacks from Hell LIVE
Live Nightclub, Ann Arbor, MI
Thursday, 3/29

And now I strike northwards and invade Michigan, courtesy of the Ann Arbor District Library. Rumor has it that cutting edge horror author Kathe Koja might be attending!

Paperbacks from Hell LIVE
SPACE, Portland, ME
Friday, April 27 @ 7pm

The good folks at The Green Hand Bookstore are bringing me to Stephen King country to do Paperabacks from Hell LIVE, followed by a screening of Stuart Gordon's Reanimator. Since it's based on an H.P. Lovecraft story, I'll be adding special bonus Lovecraft (and Stephen King) content to the show for tonight only! Here's the Facebook event page if you want to spread the good news.
