Rock and Shock
In a little less than a week, the NEHW will be making the annual pilgrimage to Worcester, MA for the mayhem that is Rock and Shock. 3+ days of metal, horror and pop culture. We've been doing this show as long as I can remember the show being around. This is the convention's 11th year and it might be ours being there as well.
I (Scott) used to go to the show as a fanboy. Drive down to the Centrum early as hell on Saturday, grab my ticket and bop around for a few hours. After joining up with the NEHW I started selling books there and hanging out with the other writers gathered within. A couple years ago, I took over the show from TJ May and have been digging it ever since. The years went by, some of the faces changed, the rest of us got older. Now it's waiting until the weekend of the 17th.
They used to have the show on Columbus day weekend, until NY Comic Con started sucking up all the star power and draw.
I can't tell you who the first person I got a signature from at R&S was, but one of my favorites is the always lovely Dee Wallace. And I keep waiting for that big Phantasm re-union. But until then...
Rock and Shock
On Saturday our own Jack Haringa and KH Vaughan from 12-1PM
We're also doing the first ever writing class/seminar on the basics of the craft Saturday 4:30 to 5:30 - that one will be taught by Trisha Wooldridge, Bracken Macleod and me (Scott Goudsward.)
