HFW Schedule

The Spookiest Show on Earth
Gettysburg, PA
September 2 – 4

It’s going to be a busy busy weekend!

The Neighborhood, my new novella through the newly revamped Thunderstorm Books Elemental Series (they’re in color now!) will be officially available this weekend… along with Robert Ford‘s Samson & Denial, and Mary SanGiovanni‘s For Emmy. Yes, we’ll have the softcovers with us. No, not the hardcovers. And of course, they’ll be available on the Thunderstorm site after the weekend…

When I’m not at my table in the celebrity room (that still sounds bizarre), batting my eyelashes and peddling my wares*, I’ll be in the vicinity of the Hippie during his signings, outside in the smoking section, or at one of the following scheduled events. I’m easy to find… short, loud, usually doing something either silly or that will end in a ridiculous injury that no one will believe.


9:00pm – 10:00pm: Women in Horror – Authors Kelli Owen (moderator), Mary SanGiovanni, J.F. Gonzalez, James A. Moore, and Lesley Conner discuss the history and contributions of women in literary horror, and their future roles. (Reading Room)


12:30pm – 1:30pm: Politics and Religion in Horror – Politics and religion are two things many prefer not to discuss, yet horror fiction examines them regularly. Authors Kim Paffenroth (moderator), Andersen Prunty, Ronald Malfi, Kelli Owen, Rio Youers, Norman Prentiss, and James Newman discuss why. (Outside – Rear Carport)

3:00pm – 4:00pm: Brian Keene and Kelli Owen (Reading Room)

5:30pm – 7:00pm: Author Q&A – Authors Tim Lebbon, Christopher Golden, James A. Moore, Brian Keene, J. F. Gonzalez, Kelli Owen, Mary SanGiovanni, and Thomas F. Monteleone answer your questions about anything in this no-holds-barred Q&A. (Outside – Rear Carport)

7:30pm – 8:30pm: Brian Keene presented with the Horrorfind Literary Award (Reading Room)


1:00pm – 2:00pm: Robert Ford and Kevin Lucia (Reading Room)

And YES, I will have a fun item this year. No, it will not be a blood-covered nail this time. I’ve learned my lesson on airplane-friendly treats (Sorry Paula & Mark!).

Come to Gettysburg. Get a book. Have a good time!

See you all there…

*note: Bob & I will have the ability to take plastic, because we love you and understand that your cash is needed at the bar =)
