Wrestling With Appalachian Horror, May 11

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.

DFZ Returns to Action 9/15 at BBW in Beckley

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 . . .

DFZ vs Bobby Fulton in Beckley, WV, Sept 15.


Darkstars? I got your Darkstars right here, chump.

Preach it, brother:
