William’s first venture into crime fiction, the long awaited You Have To Pay is now available in both print and Kindle editions! Nine short stories and two novelettes which are, to quote from the introduction by Gil Rand, “gritty stories featuring cops and criminals, made men and those unmade, private detectives, killers both professional and amateur, drifters and drunks and perhaps the worst of the bunch, attorneys”.

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.
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.
