It’s Halloween weekend, baseball fans! What are your plans for Sunday?

Bram Stoker Award®-winning editor Michael Bailey (LIBRARY OF THE DEAD) is now compiling a list of the finest speculative, dark, and imaginative novels of 2016 … and my sophomore effort, THE BLACKENING OF FLESH, has made the cut along with some of the genre’s heaviest hitters:

And while it’s technically not a novel, Bailey also said John Boden’s JEDI SUMMER WITH THE MAGNETIC KID was “a novella every X-generation should read, or Y-gen/Millennial if you want to better understand us.”

If you don’t have a copy of THE BLACKENING OF FLESH yet, I’ll be signing copies on Sunday from 5:00 to 7:00 PM at The Harp & Fiddle in Park Ridge for their “Halloween Eve” reading event with Cynthia Pelayo (THE MISSING) and John Everson (PUMPKIN MAN).


Everson, Pelayo, and I will each be reading short selections from our novels while you eat, drink, and mentally prepare yourself for Game 5 of the World Series, which–wouldn’t you know it–you can watch right there at The Harp & Fiddle on Sunday night.

First pitch is 7:08 PM, so you can load up on bangers and mash and scary stories from Chicago horror authors before you settle in for the baseball game. Here’s your invitation, and you can scout their menu by clicking here.

With Wrigleyville bars charging as much as $1250 to eat and drink with your fellow fans, The Harp & Fiddle is a no-cover bargain with a unique Sunday night pre-game you’ll never forget!

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