Zombie Gumby Endorses Voices

September 25th, 2012

It’s true. And if you were at Horror Realm this weekend, you can vouch for me.

But the real highlight for me was the chance to get together with people like Chris Rickert of Eljay’s Books (the best bookstore in Pittsburgh), Paul Anderson and Eric Beebe of Post Mortem Press, and writers like the Rhysling-Award nominee Stephanie Wytovich. It wasn’t hard to pick us out amid the zombie hoards.

This was my second time as a featured guest at Horror Realm, back on the heels of the one-day version of the con back in March, and I definitely hope to return again next year. Highly recommended!

Up next is Context in Columbus, Ohio, where I’ll be conducting the following workshops:

Monster Wrangling (Friday, September 28th, 6pm-7:30pm), in which we’ll consider effective ways of anticipating, revealing, and depicting monster by examining scenes from some genre classics and proposing a set of guidelines for describing the indescribable.

Endings and Beginnings (Saturday, September 29th, 7pm-8:30pm), in which we’ll examine patterns for effective opening and closing sentences, paragraphs, scenes, and chapters — all based on successful works of genre literature.

As a literary convention, Context is the perfect way to wind down after a zombie-infested weekend at Horror Realm. I’m definitely looking forward to sitting in on some panels and talking shop with writing friends Maurice Broaddus, Michael Knost, Maria V. Snyder, Tim Waggoner, and others.

If you’re anywhere near Columbus next weekend, I’ll hope to see you there!

Rock on!
