MONSTER BASH CONVENTION – JUNE 24-26, 2022

It's coming up very soon!

I will definitely have the novel available to sell and sign at the June 24-26, 2022 Monster Bash convention at the Pittsburgh Marriott North in Mars, PA. I am working with McFarland to acquire copies of the Angels... book to sell and sign there also. On Saturday of the convention I will be giving a presentation on three horror films that were shooting simultaneously in 1932 – Rasputin and the Empress (more of a horror film than many people realize, and in fact, one of the most horrific of 1932), The Mask of Fu Manchu, and The Mummy (the latter two, of course, starring Karloff). I was pleased to write extensively about Rasputin and the Empress in Chapter Two of my Angels and Ministers of Grace Defend Us! book so if time constraints necessitate that I give only a tantalizing overview of it during my presentation, be assured that you will learn so much more if you get a copy of this latest McFarland book. 

 Hope to see you at Monster Bash!

UP NEXT

​Meanwhile, I am providing the finishing touches on my BearManor Media book about the 1939 movie Of Mice and Men. I am hopeful that this book will also be published in 2022. I have found many fascinating facts about this movie’s genesis, its daily production triumphs and woes, and its casting drama (the great Lon Chaney Jr.’s big break – and one he almost didn’t get!) I think you will be fascinated by this movie’s saga; I certainly was as I researched it for the book.

I am also closing in on finalizing my second “Porter Down Hollywood Mystery,” Platinum Widow: Who Killed Jean Harlow’s Husband? 

Once in a while, I get to eat and sleep!

Hope to see you back here soon!
