Last night, Raw Dog Screaming Press threw a great Bizarro Halloween night and launch party for Grave Markings 20th Anniversary Edition at the Terrault Contemporary gallery in Baltimore, MD. As you’ll see in the photos below, advanced copies of the novel were available, and the night featured a series of fiction readings, emceed by bizarro author John Edward Lawson. The tattoo artist responsible for the great tat on the cover of the book, Ethan Fuhrer, was on hand, along with Nathan Rosen, designer of the covers for GM and Play Dead. The highlight of the night was hearing creepy stories from G. Arthur Brown, B.E. Burkhead, J.L. Gribble, Nathan Rosen and K. Ceres Wright, and I wrapped up the show with a reading of some flash fiction and an excerpt from the new book.
Everyone got involved with my reading of “The Seven-Headed Beast” from 100 Jolts. It was like an “Acoustic Audiovile” moment, which is just as weird as you might imagine. I post here for your creepy listening pleasure. (You will be able to hear my entire reading from the event as one of the online bonus features included with your purchase of the 20th Anniversary Edition of Grave Markings!)
