Appearance at Necronomicon 2019

Posted in Uncategorized on August 23, 2019 by bloodandstardust

Here is my Necronomicon 2019 Schedule.

Friday at 9 to 10:15 AM I will be part of this author reading.

AUTHOR READINGS – L’Apogee, Graduate 17th Floor
Nathan Ballingrud, Daniel Braum, Julie C. Day, Jonathan Thom as

Then from 1:30 – 2:45 PM , I will be panelist on this Tanith Lee panel.

HER OWN DARK MYTHOS: TANITH LEE – Capital Ballroom, Graduate 2nd Floor
Tanith Lee (1947–2015) wrote broadly, including work for children and adults, poetry, and television. With her lush, dark, and often deeply psychosexual prose, she created bizarre fantasy worlds and turned familiar horror tropes upon their heads. Join our panelists as they explore the work of this grand master of the decadently weird and impossibly strange.
This panel is presented in partnership with the Outer Dark.

Panelists: Daniel Braum, Thomas Broadbent, Paul Di Filippo, Craig Gidney, Allison Rich, Sonya Taaffe (M)

On Saturday from 1:30 to 2:45 pm I will be a part of the Music of the Spheres panel

MUSIC OF THE SPHERES: COSMICISM AND WEIRD MUSIC – Capital Ballroom, Graduate 2nd Floor
Panelists discuss the themes and concepts of the weird as adapted to music, and the importance of music to the weird at large. What themes and concepts of the weird have been adapted into music? How does music relate to and stand independent from the weird as expressed in other media? Panelists will explore these topics and more.
Panelists: Daniel Braum, Nathan Carson, Maxwell Gold, Jarboe, Jason Wallach, Douglas Wynne (M)

On Sunday at 12 Noon to 1pm in the Dealer’s Room I will be signing books at the Outer Dark table.


Plus I’ll be taking in as many panels, readings, and events as I can.

Hope to see you there.

Subvertia reviews “The Serpent’s Shadow”

Posted in Uncategorized on August 16, 2019 by bloodandstardust

“Pyramids are explored, visions are had, and a dreaded killer known as the White Lady stalks the land.”

“The greatest surprise of this book is that, at times, it is more violent than what I’m used to from Braum.”

“If you think magical realism begins and ends with South American authors such as Marquez and Borges, think again, Try Braum’s interpretation of this genre and you won’t be disappointed.”

“Fans of Latin American settings in their horror will find plenty to enjoy, while cosmic horror buffs will also get a satisfying helping of what they enjoy.”

The Ginger Nuts of Horror reviews the Serpent’s Shadow.

“…a very creative and imaginative story which encapsulates what it means to be young, in lust, and led down a path where the flow may hold unseen dangers… a very effective, weirdly oppressive atmosphere… ”
