Well, this year sees an explosion in spooky London events as we abandon our great love of Guido Fawkes and instead buy black-and-orange plastic supermarket tat before heading off to zombiethons, Zombie Horror Camp in the Old Vic tunnels, horror shows (the Leicester Square Theatre horror anthology ‘The Hallowe’en Sessions’ written by Kim Newman and friends is my hot choice), a cool horror film all-nighter from Frighfest and of course lots of readings.
Tomorrow night I’ll be with the other authors of ‘Magic’ (edited by Jonathan Oliver, who did the terrific ‘End of the Line’ and ‘House of Fear’) signing copies at Foyles bookstore in Charing Cross Road from 6:30pm. It’s a free event but you can book online.
Next Wednesday I’ll be at Blacks Club reading ‘Ghosts By Candlelight’ (I’d best bring a torch, then) and on Friday 3rd November I’ll be tackling another ghostly short story session at The Green Man pub on Great Portland Street at 7:00pm.
There’ll be a lot of other events coming up in the near future so stay tuned or check me out under ‘Peculiar’ on Twitter or Facebook.
