October - our time of the year.

When people think October I know lots lean towards box-store costumes and bulk bags of candy.  I for one (Scott) lean towards how many horror movies can I cram in this month, along with working, writing/editing and of course reading.  As I look over the crowded bookshelves I think "What next?"  And I don't know.  So in celebration of "What's Next?" The NEHW will have a small table at the Merrimack Valley Halloween Book Festival.  The brain child of Christopher Golden, this 1/2 day event will feature local and some not so local authors. 

The event runs today from 1-730 in North Andover and I am very happy (?) to say the thing is sold out.  It is a free event, and the free tickets were for crown control.  So sadly if you don't have a ticket, you won't be getting in.

"What's next?" I know several friends have new releases out, so as I'm looking through tables, maybe I'll find the "What's next?" book or maybe dig a little deeper into my Kindle and check out what I have forgotten about buying.

At the NEHW table is Jan Kozlowski, Kristin Dearborn, TT Zuma, Phil Perron and Scott Goudsward.  Holly Newstein will be signing at the table for a short while also.  Here is the panel/reading schedule for today:

1pm: Childhood Horrors—Paul Tremblay, Thomas Sniegoski, Holly Newstein Hautala, Scott Goudsward, Mallory O'Meara (M)
2pm: Seize the Night: New Tales of Vampiric Horror—Christopher Golden (M), Rio Youers, John Langan, Leigh Perry, Dana Cameron
3pm: The New England Horror Tradition—Jack M. Haringa (M), Caitlin Kittredge, Jason Ciaramella, Glenn Chadbourne, John M. McIlveen

5pm: We Get the Horror We Deserve—Joe Hill, Brian Keene, Izzy Lee, Mary SanGiovanni, Bracken MacLeod (M)
