Regular life has been so busy lately, I’ve had less than the usual time to anticipate what I count as one of my favorite big events every year, which is the H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival at the Hollywood Theater here in Portland. Wow, it’s already time!
The first events begin at 7 PM tonight (Friday 10/4) and one of the first is “Author Reading 1,” in which I’ll be reading with Cody Goodfellow and Andrew Fuller in the EOD Center Classroom. I plan to read the beginning of my novella Armageddon House, coming from Undertow Press in early 2020. Hope to see many of you there!
I’m also part of a 3:15 PM Saturday panel “Home is Where the Horror Is” with Gordon White, Brooke Warra, Anya Martin, Evan Peterson and Sam Cowan. This subject is of great interest to me, and I feel my own work focuses quite a bit on setting, architecture and landscape. This will be in the main room at the EOD Center.
Another highlight will be Carbload for Cthulhu, which is a group signing event at the EOD Center from 10 AM to noon on Saturday. I’ll be at the Word Horde table, which should also have some Dim Shores books for sale.
There will be lots of other interesting panels and readings, as well as feature films and shorts, and other fun related events. One thing I’m really looking to is Color Out of Space, directed by Richard Stanley, which has its regional premiere tonight.
If you’ll be attending HPLFF, I look forward to seeing you there. If not, you should consider going next year. Lots of fun!
