Nevermore Film Festival!

I’ve returned from Shock Pop Comic Con, and now I’m headed up to Durham, North Carolina for the 16th annual Nevermore Film Festival. The event takes place at the historic Carolina Theatre, which was ranked in the top 100 theaters…in the entire world!

It’s probably too cool of a venue for the likes of me, but Gave Up The Ghost is screening as part of the Four Bloody Footprints program of short films at 5:10 PM on both Saturday the 21st and Sunday the 22nd. This program also includes The Blood of Love, Tuning Oscar, and The Huckster. I’ll be doing an introduction before and a Q&A after both screenings.

But that’s not all! Lynne Hansen’s Chomp is screening as part of the They’re Coming To Get You Barbara shorts program, at 3:10 PM on Saturday and 7:15 PM on Sunday. These programs are back-to-back on the same screen, so you can make it a double feature, except that you’re seeing fourteen short films instead of two long ones!

To whet your ferocious appetite, here’s an interview with Lynne and I at Bull Spec, conducted by the lovely and talented Richard Dansky.

Be there! Get tickets and more information right here.

Shock Pop Comic Con!

This weekend I’ll be at Shock Pop Comic Con in Fort Lauderdale, where I will be…well, actually, I won’t be doing anything in any kind of official capacity. But I’ll be there, lurking. And Chomp is screening on Saturday the 14th at noon as part of GeekFest. Is there any better way to spend Valentine’s Day? Sure there is. You could gobble down six dozen chocolate-covered strawberries and blame it on the neighbor’s llama. But Shock Pop Comic Con is a close second. Be there.

A Public Service Announcement

Macabre Faire Film Festival

Haven’t seen Gave Up The Ghost yet? Well, by golly, the full anthology Creepers is playing this very weekend in Long Island, New York, at the Macabre Faire Film Festival, which is part of the New York Horror Show!

It’s playing Saturday, January 17th, at 1:15 PM. Check out the full schedule right HERE!

A Cruel Taunting

Today I finished “Bad Bratwurst,” which is too short to be a novella but is my longest short story ever. It’s about a bratwurst shop owner and his moral struggle to not sell sausages made from human flesh, even though opportunities to do so keep presenting themselves.

It’s going to be translated into German for a magazine which I won’t name until I know that the editor’s reaction isn’t “Dude, WTF was that?!?” There may not be an English-language publication until a future short story collection, but my next short story collection will probably be a book of all never-before-published stuff later this year, so “Bad Bratwurst” likely won’t appear until late 2016.

You’ll get over it. See? You’re over it already.

Introducing Chaos!

This is Chaos, the newest source of evil in the Strand household. He’s smart, snuggly, and eats about 850 times his body weight in cat food each day, so I need those book royalties more than ever…
