Join us for an evening of the strange and unusual with Cody Goodfellow, Philip Fracassi, Andrew J. Stone, and Brian Evenson.
Cody has been described by online magazine Entropy as a “madman genius.” He is the author of several novels, including Sleazeland, and has co-written novels with New York Times bestselling author John Skipp. In Scum of the Earth, few drugs are as potent as the human brain, making the Earth a favorite stop for alien drug-runners. Ever since the Intergalactic Enforcement Force cracked down burned down Earth, humanity survives now as cash crops. Their only hope is an oversexed pirate crew under the command of the devious nymphomaniac Callista Chrome.
Philip works full time as a screenwriter and author. His works have appeared in numerous publications such Strange Aeons, Ravenwood Quarterly, Dark Discoveries Magazine, and Best Horror of the Year Volume Ten. Behold the Void is his debut collection of horror stories, which has received positive reviews from The New York Times and LOCUS Magazine, as well as received the Story Collection of the Year award by This is Horror.
Andrew is the author of novellas All Hail the House Gods and The Mortuary Monster. In The Mortuary Monster, the cemetery and mortuary ran by Gonzalo’s parents are all that he’s known. Despite numerous attempts to runaway and lead a normal life, he’s never been able to escape. Now managing the mortuary and still unable to leave, a strange event leaves him as the sole parent of a half-corpse son, who Gonzalo wants nothing more for than a normal life.
Brian is the author of a dozen books of fiction. His books Windeye and Immobility were both finalists for a Shirley Jackson Award and his novel Last Days won the ALA award for 2009 Best Horror Novel. His novel The Open Curtain was a finalist for an Edgar Award and an International Horror Guild Award. His newest book Song for the Unraveling of the World, “is a skillfully crafted, cleverly executed, and extremely entertaining collection.” (NPR) In a starred review, Publishers Weekly says, "“these stories are carefully calibrated exercises in ambiguity in which [the author] leaves it unclear how much of the off-kilterness exists outside of the deep-seated pathologies that motivate his characters.”
