Tetsuya and the Ranagareet. Reading with Ben Francisco at Lovecraft NYC. Sept 25, 2017

Posted in Uncategorized on September 25, 2017 by bloodandstardust

Ben Francisco and I celebrated the kick off of the Halloween season with our event at Lovecraft Bar NYC Weird Wishes and Strange Ghosts.

Ben and I spoke about the appeal of the ghost story and our unique approaches to it.

I started the evening off by reading Tetsuya and the Ranagareet, one of my oldest short stories, which currently appears in THE WISH MECHANICS.

Ben read one of my favorite short stories Tio Gilberto and the 27 Ghosts which first appeared in Realms of Fantasy.

I hope to post photos and the audio in the future.

It was a wonderful night with many friends in attendance.

I had a great time meeting readers and introducing my work to new ones at this event.

All sorts of interesting vendors gathered at this historic barn on a beautiful September day. It was nice to see a lot of my books and work displayed together.
