JULY UPDATES!

Both Angels and Ministers of Grace Defend Us! More Dark Alleys of Classic Horror Cinema...(available currently from 
McFarland & Company 
A&M-McFarland and from 
Amazon A&M-Amazon) and 
Frankenstein’s Witch: St. Lizzie, 
Pray For Us, the first novel in my 
“Porter Down Hollywood Mysteries"
series, (available from BearManor 
Media FW-BearManor and 
from Amazon FW-Amazon) are
selling quite well!

See my “Thoughts” page for more 
details on the novel and my 
"Novels" page for information 
about upcoming volumes in this 
series.

I was honored to be a guest at the
June 24-26, 2022 Monster Bash 
convention at the Pittsburgh 
Marriott North in Mars, PA. On 
Saturday of the convention I gave
 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). Rasputin and the Empress is covered more thoroughly than time permitted at the convention in Chapter Two of my Angels and Ministers of Grace Defend Us! book. 

I did brisk business in sales of both my newest books at the convention (I sold out of Angels... and sold more than half of Frankenstein's Witch...)

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!
