Just a reminder that my collection of short horror stories, Dark Matters, is available as a free Kindle download Friday April 3 and Saturday April 4. Also, as the Kanawha County Public Library system is currently closed my presentation, Wrestling With Appalachian Horror, scheduled for the 4th has been cancelled.
We here at William Bitner want to let you know how committed we are to your safety and well-being during this time of turmoil and upheaval. Out of our deep concern, we’re keeping all of our various titles available on Amazon during this crisis so that you can better prepare yourself for what’s ahead, namely the post-apocalyptic reign of Warlord Bill.
This a dark matter and with that in mind, we’re offering the Kindle version of Dark Matters free Friday, April 3 through Saturday, April 4.
As you’re probably already aware, Kindles will be…how shall we say…frowned upon during the thousand year reign of Warlord Bill, so we suggest that you load up on paperbacks as well.
As always, your welfare and convenience are among our primary concerns.
If you’re looking for reading material to pass the time and lift your spirits while you ride out the coronapocalypse, you can get my latest collection of horror stories, Green Maws Are Gaping, on Kindle absolutely free Saturday, March 21 through Sunday, March 22.
And if the siege should happen to continue beyond the weekend, I have a few other horror compilations to recommend, such as M is for Monster, T is for Thing, N is for Nightmare, Gone Where the Goblins Go, She Saw Dinosaurs, Worlds Beyond, and Dark Matters, Then there’s Down in the Drains, my dark sci-fi/horror novel, DFZ vs the Fists of Mars, for you sports fans, and for the eclectic social-distancing dilettantes among you, Heavy Planet Man, a collection of over a hundred original song lyrics, all penned by me, William Bitner.
Back by popular demand! Due to the success of the program last year I will again be speaking at the Main Library in Charleston regarding the Appalachian influences on my horror fiction as well as the art of story telling as performed within the confines of a pro wrestling ring. This year’s presentation will be Saturday, April 4th at 2 pm, once again in the Ray Room on the 3rd floor.
The Good Time Christmas Show is now up for viewing. While the entire show is excellent and well worth watching, Death Falcon Zero makes his appearance at 1:13:30 (approximately). Enjoy.
The Good Time Christmas Show
It's hard to believe that it has already been two months since all of these amazing people came together to give nearly $70,000 to our community! We're already hard at work on the show for this year — who would you like to see perform? #thegoodtimechristmasshow #christmas #myhuntingtonPosted by The Good Time Christmas Show on Wednesday, February 19, 2020
Death Falcon Zero appeared on stage Thursday night, December 19 at the Jean Carlo Stephenson auditorium along with an all star cast of celebrities and musicians in a fun, festive Christmas program that raised over $70,000 for 30 local charities. And yes, he body slammed host Michael Valentine into the Christmas tree but who didn’t see that coming?
My latest collection of horror stories, Green Maws Are Gaping is now out and available in both print and Kindle editions. From the back cover copy: “Not all lights in the sky are stars. Not all that is dead remains so. Not all who are lost are found … nor should be. From sunny summer front porches and the quiet streets of 1960s suburbia to the brutal and unforgiving task of witch hunting and the summoning of demons no one in this gripping collection of horror stories is ever safe, ever far from that dread world where green maws are always gaping.”
If you like well written horror stories that remain with you long after they’ve been read, this is a book for you.
The West Virginia Humanities Council is sponsoring Mountain Magic, a celebration of the rich literary storytelling heritage of West Virginia, throughout the months of March, April and May. I’m honored to have been chosen as one of the presenters and will be speaking at the Main Library in Charleston, WV on Saturday, May 11 at 2 pm in the Ray Room.
Please come join me and “Enjoy an afternoon of readings and discussion with author and professional wrestler William Bitner who will share the many ways in which his horror fiction has been influenced by Appalachia. Bitner will also speak about wrestling as a form of storytelling.”
I’ll have all my books available for sale and autograph, we’re heading across the street for beers afterward. I’m anticipating a very enjoyable event. Hope to see you there.
The real men known and feared as DeathStars 3.0 (DFZ, Shane Storm, Rocky Rage and Casey King) will be meeting the backstabber Seth Martin and his backstabbing bunch of backstabbers in a cage match, Friday, April 19th at the Quantum Sports Center, Hurricane, WV. Going to be a bloodbath, I guarantee. Doors open at 6:30, bell time 7:30.
