I had the pleasure recently of speaking with Gregory Norris at the World Horror Convention in Salt Lake City. What a pleasure to chat with such a great writer! His story in Evil Jester Digest Volume One, "Lone Wolf" is a wonderful read. Also check out his new collection of short stories, The Fierce and Unforgiving Muse.
Hanging around outside the dealer's room on day three. Left to right: my girlfriend Jen Fegan, the Evil Little Jester himself, Charles Day, and myself. Charles's YA novel Legend of the Pumpkin Thief is now available in print from Amazon. It's a wonderfully charming little tale of mystery and love and an ancient evil awakening in a small rural town.
My last day at the convention with the wonderful Hollie Snider. Her creepy tale "Widdershins" appears in Evil Jester Digest Volume One. Also, I picked up her collection of zombie fiction (she's the editor) called Live and Let Undead. The stories are diverse and authentic, subverting convention for some great laughs. Check out Peter Giglio's story "The Power of Words." Great Stuff.
(Here are some other pictures I stole:)
Peter Giglio and Marie Green at the Stoker Awards. Peter's novella Balance is a maniacal, zombie-fueled story with interesting plot twists. Marie Green is a fellow horror/fantasy writer and will be voicing the audiobook version of Peter's novel, Anon.
The awesome Henry Snider. Check out his story "The Vessel" in Help! Wanted: Tales of on-the-Job Terror. Love the photo-bomb of Peter in the back!
