I survived the Hell-e-vator at World Horror Con Atlanta! #WHC2015

Bram Stoker Awards® Weekend & World Horror Con 2015 was a total blast.

I met so many wonderful people, participated in and attended brilliant panels, signed a coffin load of books, and presented the World Premiere of my new movie The Stay. My first Stoker Awards Banquet was an unforgettable night, and I had the pleasure of sitting at the Samhain Horror table with several of my labelmates. I even sipped single malt whisky and chatted with the legendary Jack Ketchum with my partner in crime Aaron Dries. The after-parties went on into the wee hours of the morning and my suitcase was bursting with beautiful books as I flew the red eye back home to merry olde England.

See my WHC2015 photo gallery here.

But one thing I didn’t know about WHC2015 was that it had its own scary theme park ride, courtesy of the Marquis Marriott Atlanta.

The Hell-e-vator.

Check out my clip below – a madcap descent into the vertiginous abyss straight down from the 30th floor into a watery, pebble-based demise. Now imagine doing that with a hangover. We’re on an express elevator to hell – goin’ down! Hold on to yer lungpipes!

World Horror Con 2015 Schedule

Hey F(r)iends, i’m looking forward to seeing some of you at the 25th Anniversary World Horror Convention & Bram Stoker Awards® Weekend in Atlanta, 7-10 May.

The programmers have put together a dazzling array of panels and events – I wish I could attend every single one.

(My schedule of panels, readings, screenings etc. is below.)

Please note, the Mass Signing Event is open to the public, so even if you’re not around for the whole convention do come along on the Friday for books and authors galore.

And my publisher, Samhain Horror, will be in the dealers’ room all weekend with a coffin load of scary books.

– it will be great to see you there!

Cheers,
Frazer

I just signed the publishing contract for my new novella…

SamhainSoonThe ink is just drying on the contract for my new novella The Leper Window. I’m thrilled to announce that Samhain Publishing will release the book in 2015.

The Leper Window is the sequel to The Lucifer Glass and is the second in my Daniel Gates occult novella series. This time, poor Daniel faces weird evil in the wilds of Wales.

My editor Don D’Auria said he had fun reading the book, and I hope you will too!

On that note I’d better sign off as the final copy edits have also come in for my new novel The Skintakers, (prequel to The Lamplighters) also due for release via Samhain Horror in 2015.

If you haven’t read them yet, why not check out The Lamplighters and The Lucifer Glass ahead of publication of the sequels?

One last thing before I go, did I mention I’ll be appearing at World Horror Con 2015 in Atlanta USA? It’s set to be a great event, and is my first USA gig since Horrorfind Weekend 2006. I’m looking forward to meeting fellow horror authors and readers alike – and I might even have some copies of my books to sign at the Friday Mass Signing Event. See you there!

Cheers,
Frazer


Dead Pics

Dead By Dawn 2013 was an absolute blast. It was funtimes all the way watching a dazzling array of horror movies and hanging with horror family in the Filmhouse bar.

Friday night’s double bill of Basket Case and Brain Damage, introduced by the mighty Frank Henenlotter and aided and abetted by the demented antics of Albert Cadabra, was an absolute highlight. Frank also directed the audience in a series of Dead Pics – you can witness the results at the official Dead By Dawn Fassbock Page.

For ace in-depth coverage of the festival, look no further than Brutal As Hell where the reviews are second to none.

Meantime, here’s a handful of pics I took during the frivolities, before I was carried away by the deadite hordes to my tequila-flavoured doom.

Dead By Dawn, I salute you. Klaatu…barada…nikto!
