Ghosts and gangsters coming Sunday to Milwaukee ParaCon

Halloween’s coming, but the spirits … they’ve already arrived. It’s the Milwaukee Paranormal Convention, and it’s happening this weekend at the UWM student union. I’ll be there on Sunday among the ghost hunters, cryptozoologists, and UFO experts, signing copies of THE BLACKENING OF FLESH about a teenager who’s house is haunted by five Prohibition-era gangsters. But I won’t be the only author at the table. Authors Dawn Napier and Christine Verstraete will also be inking their latest releases.

25256617.jpgNapier is the author of BLACK BELLS, the story of a woman who has to face the incarnation of her childhood fears in order to save her daughter, who’s gone missing. A child in danger cuts to the quick of our most basic fears, but if you’re looking for some adventure without the creeps, you might want to check out Napier’s MANY KINGDOMS fantasy series (DARK RANGERA FIRE OF THORNS; and WORLD OF DRAGONSWORLDS OF MIST), a perfect hat trick during this treating season.

Verstraete, author of GIRL Z: MY LIFE AS A TEENAGE ZOMBIE, will also be personalizing copies of her latest work, LIZZIE BORDEN, ZOMBIE HUNTER, which puts a new spin on an old mystery: what if Borden did it … because she had to? Borden experts should love this new take, but if you’ve never even heard of Borden before, I’m sure you’ll find it’s a great entrance point to this head-scratcher of a case. If you liked ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER, then I’m sure Verstraete’s Borden book will be right up your alley.


The Milwaukee Paranormal Conference happens this weekend at the University of Milwaukee Student Union from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, and 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Sunday. Passes start at just $10, and include access to the vendor room, guest speakers and panels, workshops, media demos, activities, and a “ghost story” open mic. I get the feeling Halloween will be feeling a little big jealous this year. You don’t want to miss this. Especially Sunday. See you there!

Christian A. Larsen is the author of the novels LOSING TOUCH and THE BLACKENING OF FLESHnow available from Post Mortem Press.
