Greetings, fellow fiends!
It's been a grand month or so since we last checked in with news of everyone's favorite compendium of rantings and ravings from the darker quarter. There have been accolades and acolytes, convention rails and monster sales, and we owe it all to the support of bloody brothers and sisters like YOU.
First off, we are thrilled to announce that HIDDEN HORROR has been nominated as "Best Horror Book of 2013" by the Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Awards. If you have not already, please stop by the Rondo Awards website and cast your vote!
The full ballot can be found HERE: http://www.rondoaward.com/
And don't forget to vote in category #11! (BEST BOOK)
|LOL For a second, I thought that said we were #6. Oh wait, it does.|
Next up, we've been receiving a TON of positive feedback, so much so that it's a bit overwhelming. To wit:
AIN'T IT COOL NEWS
SAN FRANCISCO BAY GUARDIAN
SON OF CELLULOID
GEEK LEAGUE OF AMERICA
THE MOON IS A DEAD WORLD
HAYES HUDSON'S HOUSE OF HORROR
Many, many thanks to our like-minded brethren for picking up what we were laying down. (For more rave reviews, refer back to our earlier post)
A grand salute to Jay Kay of the Horror Happens Radio Show, for letting me ramble on about this, that, and the other (ESPECIALLY the other):
Our warmest regards to everyone who stopped by the HIDDEN HORROR and KITLEY'S KRYPT tables at both HorrorHound Weekend and Cinema Wasteland to say hello and pick up a copy. It was such a pleasure to meet you fine freaks and geeks and mystiques - please drop us a line and stay in touch!

Finally, this weekend, if you're in the Windy City area, stop by either the Sci-Fi Spectacular on Saturday, April 12 at the Patio Theater (6008 Irving Park Road, Chicago, IL) from 12pm to 2am (14 hours of nonstop horror, sci-fi, and fantasy goodness!)
Bucket O' Blood Books and Records at 2307 N. Milwaukee Ave, Chicago, IL on Sunday, April 13 from 4pm to 6pm for a great gathering of HIDDEN HORROR contributors gabbing about their favorite fright flicks! Hope to see you at one or the other (OR BOTH!)
|Here's looking at you, kiddies...|
Until next time!!!
