HWA Halloween Haunts, Other Posts Scheduled for October

The Horror Writers Association “Halloween Haunts 2013” celebration begins tomorrow, October 1, on the HWA’s Dark Whispers blog.  A total of nearly fifty guest posts will appear on a schedule of one or two per day up through Halloween itself.  My own particular day on this is October 13 — my lucky number! — with a review of the film of the opera  DRACULA:  ENTRE L’AMOUR ET LA MORTE, complete with directions on how to find translations of the songs in English.  The film has been reviewed as well on this site on May 31 last year, but, for those who missed it then, October 13 may be just in time to order a DVD for yourself to enjoy with friends, along with candy and other appropriate refreshments, on Halloween night.

October, in fact, will be a big month for guest appearances for me as it’s shaping up.  Not only will that film be featured on the HWA blog on the 13th, another film review by me is scheduled to open this year’s WHERE THE DEAD FEAR TO TREAD (a.k.a. M.R. GOTT’S CUTIS ANSERINA) annual Halloween Celebration (cf. September 23).  Of which more, and a link, should appear tomorrow.  And then, on October 21, THE TEARS OF ISIS will be featured in Kate Hill’s HAUNTED LIBRARY — for more on Kate, who we’ve met before, see August 13 this year, as well as October 1 2011 on which the plug for the Halloween season was my poetry book VAMPS (A RETROSPECTIVE) — and, while the exact date hasn’t yet been set, yesterday I completed an interview with Cassie Carnage to appear in October on CASSIE’S HOUSE OF HORROR.

Back to the HWA’s Halloween Haunts, below is a messed up (that’s the way HWAHalloweenHaunts_1the internet works sometimes) but hopefully still readable schedule of events.  A facebook page has also been set up for late-breaking updates, including giveaways, which can be reached by pressing here, while for the blog itself, the HWA site can be found  by pressing here (of which I might add, scroll down to where it says “explore” on the right side, then click “Blog” to discover all sorts of other neat things as well).
