Dog Con 4
October 23-25, 2015
Arnzen will participate in DogCon 4 — Raw Dog Screaming Press‘ annual convention of readings, signings, panels, workshops book parties and literary activities for readers, writers and supporters of the indie upstart publisher. This will be the biggest and baddest DogCon yet!
All DogCon activities are open to the public, spread out across the Philadelphia region. You can join in on any of them or just come to one. The gang is friendly, loves meeting new people and they promise not to bite!
Arnzen will lecture on “The Uncanny Valley” at Neumann University on Friday, 7pm. and read fiction/poetry at the Nightmare Before Halloween event on Saturday, from 7-10pm. Books will be available at both events, and Arnzen will be around all weekend to meet and greet at every other DogCon festivity.

Want a taste of what to expect? See past DogCon-related posts on the gorelets blog, or event reports on the publisher’s website. Here’s a vid of one of my readings from DogCon2 in Columbus Ohio a few years back, which was a hoot. You can also see a video of one of my previous talks on the Uncanny at Neumman U. I hope to see you there!
