DFZ Appears at Huntington Good Time Christmas show

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?

Green Maws Are Gaping Out Now in Print and Kindle Editions

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.

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.

Coming Attractions

First up, coming either next month or early in March will be my seventh collection of horror short stories, Dark Matters, with a killer cover by World Fantasy Lifetime Award winner Stephen Fabian. I also have a novel Sweet Lou currently under consideration by a major publisher of crime fiction as well as a number of crime and horror shorts out making the rounds. Further information on these as it develops.
Also in the pipeline is another volume of the lurid adventures of everyone’s favorite masked reprobate, Death Falcon Zero Vs The Fists Of Mars, a collection of short crime fiction as yet untitled, and a horror novel, Green Maws Are Gaping.
A graphic adaptation of “Pennies From Hell”, the lead novella from M Is For Monster is in the works as is an all new collection of graphic horror shorts.
Last but far from least, a shooting script is being prepared for a film version of “Gone Where The Goblins Go,”, the title story of my fourth collection of horror stories. I literally could not be happier or more excited by this development.
So, there’s lots of cool stuff coming in the weeks and months ahead. Stay tuned to this station for further announcements.

This is too good to keep to yourself!
