I’ll also be catching up with the crew from Black Beacon Books and celebrate their first publication release, 809 Jacob Street, by Marty Young.

Later in the month, I’ll be participating in the HWA’s Horror Roundtable, talking about comics with Evil Jester Comics’ publishers Charles Day and Taylor Grant.

So October is going to really ramp up now and I’m bloody looking forward to it!

Happy October everyone!
