A Gathering of Megatalent at the Oddities Market

I would be remiss and cruel if I did not inform anyone near the Jersey City or NYC area that three very talented friends will be selling their impossibly wondrous wares at Spring Mourning: Jersey City Oddities market on Saturday, April 21st, from 12-6pm.

Tenebrous Kate, my partner in the Bad Books for Bad People podcast and artist/publisher of the Morbid Fantasies book on Gothic fiction, will be there.

Becky Munich, who did the cover and chapter illustrations in Krevborna: A Gothic Blood Opera, published my stuff in the Occult Activity Books, and contributed to Morbid Fantasies, will be there.

Carisa Swenson, who contributed to Morbid Fantasies and made the pocket puffin I talked about here, will be there.

And they'll all be at one table. How could you miss that and still live with yourself?
