At the Jean Carlo Stephenson Auditorium… come out and get your pants scared off. This is a hyperlink to the event on Facebook. (The image also links to it.)
For the third consecutive year Death Falcon Zero and Michael Valentine attempt to make it to the end of “Feliz Navidad” at the Goodtime Christmas Show, this time with an assist from Michael’s son Jack. Will they be successful this year? Well, what do you think . . .
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.
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
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.
The DeathStars return in their latest and greatest incarnation, DeathStars 3.0. Death Falcon Zero, Shane Storm and Sensational Seth Martin will compete in six man tag team action Saturday, August 18 for the Unleashed Wrestling Association. Doors open at 6:30 pm, bell time 7:30 pm at the Milton Fire Department, Milton, WV.
As some of you know I recently suffered (I’m ditching the third person “William”) an injury to my already damaged right knee that forced me to pull out of a number of matches including one last month that would have seen DFZ wrestling Ricky Morton of the Rock and Roll Express. That broke my, or more accurately DFZ’s heart. I’ve recovered enough to be able to be back in the ring 9/15 when the DeathStars will be taking on NWA/WCCW/WCW star Bobby Fulton of The Fantastics and a tag partner of his choosing. You’ve heard of the one-legged man in an ass kicking contest? That would be me . . .
Darkstars? I got your Darkstars right here, chump.
