Social Promotion @ 02:21 pm


I'm here to promote all the wonderful things all my wonderful peoples are up to. (* may contain up to 2% self-aggrandizement due to settling on shipment)

Let's begin with the Los Angeles HP Lovecraft Film Festival, since it allows for multiple propers to be given. The fest runs September 16-17.

The LA version of the fest is, of course, the brainchild of aaronjv, in association with Andrew Migliore, the founder of the Portland HPLFF.

The fest will screen The Whisperer in Darkness, made by the good folks at the HPLHS, namely Sean Branney and Andrew Leman. The film also features a host of background players of my acquaintance. Off the top of my head: Aaron, Adrianne, Bryan, Chris, David, Jennifer, Maria, and my own self.

The groovy festival poster was created by David Milano.

The fest will have a small literary reading/panel discussion headed up by the dimly-half-remembered-didn't-we-meet-twenty-years-ago Cody Goodfellow, and featuring a handful of luminaries, with me representing the dim end of the luminary spectrum.


In a similar visual Lovecraftian vein is Dr. Pookie's recent magic lantern show: Ice, with voiceover work by me.


Speaking of (real) voice talent, Flor is putting her demo reel together. Other vocal folds for hire include Toren, Graydon & Shawn


Maria Alexander's poetry collection, At Louche Ends, was recently published, as was Left Hanging, an anthology of suspenseful stories edited by her.


Aaron is also in charge of a road rally event coming up on August 27th here in Los Angeles. His first one was great, and I'll be there for version 2.0.


Dr. Pookie's art found itself on the cover of Petrychor's album, Effigies and Epitaphs.


Chun continues his episodic science fiction simulation/LARP, Starship Valkyrie.


Probably too many other people to mention are also pushing forward various LARP, RPG, and video game projects. So everyone just go out and spend money on these things, ok?


Jackie Kashian will make with the funny somewhere near you sooner or later.


The reanimated The Unspeakable Oath has featured John Tynes, Richard Becker, Dan Harms, Toren Atkinson in its recent issues.


Toren and his pals make the Caustic Soda podcast. It often makes me break out in inappropriate laughter at work.


Various bebbies 'n' weddings are in the works.


I've tried to concentrate on things recent and shortly upcoming, but no doubt I've forgotten things even with that restriction, so let me know if you need a shout out. Or feel free to promote your goods and services in the comments.

Do you mean Graham Skipper and Jesse Merlin, who play Herbert West and Dr. Hill, respectively?

The two gentlemen who joined me on the "H.P. Lovecraft in Comics ‡ Film" panel I moderated at San Diego Comic Con a few weeks ago?

The same Jesse Merlin whose grandfather Milton met Lovecraft many years ago?

Great guys, both Graham and Jesse, and talented.

Thanks for the shout out...I am doing too much stuff, and forget to tell people. I need a publicist that works for free.

Thanks for the shout outs!

Also, I love Dr. Pookie's art. That's amazing! I heard she had another animated short, too? Where can I see that?
