This time next week, I’ll be winding down my first H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival! Where I will be seeing, among other things, the Cabal Cut of Nightbreed, which I am saying less to make you all jealous and more to make it real for myself because I am that excited. Seriously, I am more stoked about this festival than I have been any other convention I’ve ever gone to. I’m so excited that I just used the word “stoked.”
Anyway, I’m going to be a guest at the festival, which also makes it my first-ever turn as a guest. I’ll be doing a panel on Celluloid Cosmic Horror (with Brian Yuzna!, and a bunch of other people who’re all way more qualified to talk about that subject than me) and a reading alongside Amanda Downum and Andrew Fuller. Whenever I’m not doing one of those two things, I will probably be watching awesome movies. I’ll for sure be at one of the Nightbreed screenings, and I’m hoping to catch Solomon Kane and pretty much everything else that’s showing, too, which is actually impossible unless I get one of those time turner things from Harry Potter, and I am opposed to time travel on principle, so I guess that’s out.
Anyway, here’s a link to the schedule. My panel is from 1-2pm on Saturday, and my reading is at 1:30 on Sunday. I’m told there’ll be some opportunity for selling books as well, so I’ll be hauling out a bunch of copies of Never Bet the Devil, and I’m hoping not to haul them back. If you’re going and would like to say hello, definitely hunt me up. I have no idea what all I’ll be doing, but I can’t wait to be doing it, and I think it’s going to be a blast.
