ON SCREEN, ON THE AIR, AND IN PERSON (with movie, radio, and signing news)

Another week, another weekly Blog entry. This past week I worked on novels HOLE IN THE WORLD, RETURN TO THE LOST LEVEL, and a new edition of J.F. Gonzalez’s PRIMITIVE.

In between all that, I also left the house to get together with Kasey Lansdale, Tim Truman, Chet Williamson, Kelli Owen, Robert Ford, Robert Swartwood, and Mike Lombardo. Because sometimes an author must force themselves to walk away from the keyboard and socialize.

I also finished the final draft of a radio script called “No Such Thing As Monsters”. It’s for the Twin Cities Horror Festival’s live radio show featuring comedic and scary radio plays written by myself, Joseph Scrimshaw, Tim Uren, Tansy Undercrypt, Jeff Strand, Molly & Nick Glover, and Tim Wick. Also featured will be original music and commercials. It will be a little bit funny and a little bit scary. There will be a lot of blood but you won’t be able to see any of it. Imagine a Prairie Home Companion. With zombies. There will be two performances. The first is on October 25th at 7:00 PM and the second is on October 31st at 7:00 PM. Each show will feature different content! For complete details, check them out on Facebook.

THE NAUGHTY LIST, Paul Campion’s film adaptation of my short story “The Siqqusim Who Stole Christmas” (in which Ob from THE RISING series possesses Santa Claus and then encounters mob enforcer Tony Genova) has some very big news coming soon. You won’t want to miss it. To ensure that you don’t miss it, follow The Naughty List on Twitter and Like them on Facebook.

FAST ZOMBIES SUCK is a film based on my short story of the same name. If you don’t live in Louisville, KY, you can watch the movie for free on my YouTube Channel.

I’ve got two appearances left for this year. That’s it. And I haven’t scheduled anything yet for next year.

The first is at the Albatwitch Festival in Columbia, PA on September 26th. I’ll be signing books throughout the day (but will have to leave early as I’m also officiating a wedding that evening).

The second is the Merrimack Valley Halloween Festival. I’ll be signing there all day, along with friends like Joe Hill, Mary SanGiovanni, Christopher Golden, Rio Yours, Jack Haringa, and dozens more. Complete details can be found on their Facebook page. In addition to signing, I’ll also be doing the following two panels:

5pm: We Get the Horror We Deserve — Joe Hill, Brian Keene, Izzy Lee, Mary SanGiovanni, Bracken MacLeod (M)

6pm: Live Reading THE STRANGE CASE OF DR. JEKYLL & MR. HYDE — Jack M. Haringa, Bracken MacLeod, Brian Keene, Kat Howard, John Langan, Gardner Goldsmith

  1. If anyone wants to attend the signing at the Albatwitch Festival, but isn’t interested in all the paranormal stuff, they might be interested to know that Columbia’s watch and clock museum will be having an Octobertfest celebration going on the same day, so you could sample some of our local craft beers instead of (or in addition to) going to some of the paranormal talks.

  2. Hey Brian – Love the podcast and enjoyed the interview with Jack Haringa. One obvious thing you left out, though – what does Jack Haringa think of Brian Keene’s own books? He must like your work and find you a “literary” enough writer, but I find it curious he is not a fan of Richard Laymon, one of your primary influences. What books of yours does Haringa really like and which does he not? I can’t imagine he liked Castways, which is your tribute to Laymon – or does he? I love your work, by the way, and consider myself a pretty literary guy myself. I graduated from the University of Florida having majored in English, and have been a technical writer (like your co-host Dave) for 25 years. Anyway, I am curious what Haringa finds as the pros and cons of your own work.
