It’s October, which means things are allowed to be all Samhain, all the time. Or at least, that’s my understanding. And among the joys of the Hallowe’en month are the things that go bump in the night.
To celebrate all things bump-in-the-night-ish, myself and the wonderful author Christian Baines (who writes super-creepy awesome things) will be at the Prospero at Bank and Slater here in Ottawa, Friday October 6th, at 11:30 a.m.
If you’ve not encountered Christian before, allow me to point out how much I loved The Beast Without and The Orchard of Flesh (the Arcadia Trust series), as well as Puppet Boy. He writes creepy, engrossing, dark urban fantasy as well as psychologically stirring and disturbing contemporary fiction. Basically, he’s a one-stop-shop for your Hallowe’en reading needs.
And, of course, I’ll be there with Triad Blood and Triad Soul especially, because vampires, demons, and wizards (oh my).
Hope to see you there!
