NEW SHRIEK EVENT
Update: I've gotten several emails from people in the UK and elsewhere outside of the US asking about the possibility of hosting a Shriek movie party, especially with the aim of doing some cross promotion/celebration of their own work. It's all very possible. Just have to take into account timing issues, for maximum effect.
See below for information on the Raleigh Shriek event. I'm thrilled that Jason and Janet of Two Cranes Press agreed to host this event. (Jason had very helpful comments on Shriek in manuscript form, too.)
...and I should have info on new events in Chicago, Gainesville (FL), and, possibly, Scotland, shortly....
