Just in time for summer reading, Horror Realm teams ups with Eljay’s books to present a showcase of local horror authors who are either self published or work with independent publishing companies. The series will take place on Saturdays at 3 PM beginning July 9 at Eljay’s Books in Dormont. Each event will feature a local author reading selections from their book(s), participating in a question and answer session, and signing books. Schedule is as follows:
July 9 – Tim Gross is the author of a series of horror movie review books. Tim doesn’t just review the blockbusters, so you’ll find tons of reviews on indie film from all over the world in each of his books. Chat with Tim and get an autographed copy of one of his review guides.
July 16 – Christine Soltis discusses and signs her book Final Moon as part of the series. Christine is the author or a number of books and ebooks ranging from poetry to horror.
July 30 – The only thing we have to fear, we’re told, is fear itself. In Phobophobia, the first fiction collection from award-winning screenwriter and journalist Mike Watt, ordinary people going through everyday events are subjected to nightmares beyond their imagining. In Phobophobia, nothing is what it seems … – Not a classic cherry red Mustang… – Not a run-of-the-mill art exhibit… – Not a Valentine’s Day gift… – Not even Christmas Morning…
August 6 – Jon Towers is known for his stunning zombie art and his series The New Apocypha. Jon will be signing his latest book in The New Apocrypha series: The Order of the Shining Hexagon. Jon is both an artist and writer, and has been self-publishing his comic books for about ten years. Jon is also an indy pro-wrestler.
The series is part of Horror Realm’s Summer of Scares, which also includes a 12-week classic horror film program, a screening of the film Basket Case accompanied by a live performance by cast member Beverly Bonner and a joint lecture series with Ghost Story TV and Shadow 3 Media titled Beyond the Paranormal, all of which will be held at The Hollywood Theater in Dormont.
