Issue #12 is almost here!

October's issue is here and will be shipped within the week. Daniel Russell is the Editor for this issue and he did a fantastic job. We had more high quality stories over 3,000 words than normal, so while the TOC has only 18 stories (including three 100-Word Bites), the issue weighs in at 144 pages, almost twenty more than the last issue.

If you don’t have a subscription yet and are on the fence, pick up a copy of #12 from, Amazon or B& and give it a try, you won't be sorry.

Road Tripping

It's been a while since NT went on a convention road trip. We can't go to all of the conventions, no matter how much we would like to, so my goal for 2010 and 2011 is to go to conventions NT has never attended before.

I'll starts with Horror Realm (formerly known as Zombie Fest), in Pittsburgh PA on September 17-19. It promises to be an action packed weekend, with not one, not two, but three movie reunions. There will be cast members in attendance from Basket Case, Night of the Living Dead and Dawn of the Dead.

There are so many cool guests attending that I don’t have room on this post to name them all, so check out the link.

Greg Hall from Choate Road and The Funky Werepig will also be in attendance and has agreed to act as slave labor and assist me with running my table in the vendor room. Both Greg and I have a novel coming out through Belfire Press this year. Mine is called The White Faced Bear, and it is scheduled for release on October 31st. Greg's is At The End of Church Street and was released earlier this year and has already had several impressive reviews. Greg will be signing copies and busting my chops, so if you're not planning to go, change your mind! If you are going, please swing by the vendor room and keep us company.

I'll have six weeks to recover and then I will be attending Crypticon at the Sheraton in Bloomington MN on November 5-7. What's that you say? Isn't NT located in MN? You caught me, yes indeed Crypticon is in my own back yard, so this one isn't much of a road trip for me. However, someone is making a road trip to attend. The talented and beautiful Artist Samantha Ann Christianson is making a road trip from Winnipeg, Canada with her friend and, the equally lovely model GRACE LYNN. The Echo Effect Productions, to help me promote Necrotic Tissue. She will be doing a body painting exhibition at NT's table in the vendor room with Grace Lynn, and then offer her amazing skills to interested customers. Samantha doesn't just paint you, she transforms you.

2011 is just too far off to go into detail, but I am already confirmed for Visioncon in Springfield, MO Feb 18-20 2011, and the World Horror Convention in Austin, TX April 28-May 1st 2011.
