HPLFF, Strange Aeons, and Beyond
Okay, maybe not so much beyond.
Here’s the thing: February has been a little crazy, as far as work goes, which is probably part of why I haven’t updated here since, um, the second day of it. But some stuff has been going on in the mean time that I really ought to mention, so: I’m going to be a guest, once again, at the H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival in Portland on April 11-13. I’m very pleased to be going back, as last year’s event was probably the most fun I’ve ever had at a convention, and I love Portland and all the many awesome folks I know who live up in that area. Like last year, they’re doing a Kickstarter to help raise funds to make the fest even more awesome, so you might want to head over and check that out, because there are a lot of awesome pledge rewards up for grabs (even for those who aren’t going) and there’s only three days left to get in on it.
(It’s already more than doubled its initial funding goal, so we are well into “funded” territory at this point, but there are still some fantastic stretch goals, and plenty of eldritch rewards up for grabs.)
There’s another reason to back the HPLFF Kickstarter while you’ve got the opportunity. My story “Remains” will be appearing in the special all-fiction lost 13th issue of Strange Aeons Magazine, alongside a veritable who’s-who of weird fiction luminaries. The 13th issue is available exclusively to Kickstarter backers, and you can add it on to any reward tier for only $10. Seriously, you can check out a full table of contents here, and see how good the company I’m keeping in this one is.
I’ll have more info on what’ll actually be going on at the festival as the date draws closer, but it’s going to be a hell of a good time, so if you’re in the Portland area or can get there, I recommend coming out. And even if you can’t, back the Kickstarter for a few bucks and grab yourself an issue of the special Strange Aeons issue, and it’ll be like being there in spirit (or maybe as a disembodied brain in a cylinder).
