If Halloween is your favorite time of year and you live in the Los Angeles area, then be still your heart at the opportunity to listen to two phenomenal writers dish up some delicious scares this Wednesday evening October 28 at Meltdown Comics and Collectibles from 8:30 to 9:45 PM.
Presented by independent publisher Fanboy Comics, join writers Robert Payne Cabeen (Heavy Metal 2000, Tainted Treats) and Justin Robinson (City of Devils, Coldheart) for An Evening of Horror Fiction & Poetry. Cabeen will have you squirming like a bowlful of slimy earthworms as he reads some of his blood curdling poetry from his Bram Stoker nominated Fearworms: Selected Poems. Robinson will serve up terrorizing passages from Get Blank and read a short tale set in his City of Devils universe that will give you goosebumps and curl your toes.
There will be a book signing with both author after their readings as well as treats and maybe a trick or two. Admission is free but plan to arrive early so you can get a seat.
