Here’s a scary story I told in front of a live audience at the awesome LAST BOOK STORE in downtown Los Angeles earlier this month. Watch the video, then check out the photos below.
THE STAIN (video by Liliana C. Costa, thanks!)
There, now you’ve heard the story, check out the images!
One of the cemeteries, the graves all unmarked, that surround the strucutre…
Inside the Ridges is the Tuberculoses Ward, considered one of the most haunted places in the world…
A photograph of Margaret Schilling as a patient, her hands oddly placed in the exact position – over her heart – they were in when she died…
These next two are photographs I took on the night we explored the TB ward looking for Margaret’s strange, final, lasting impression.
The first image is a photograph of us moving through the structure, before reaching the “bat chamber”. Notice my flash reflecting off the dense dust particles we were all breathing… Read more
This Sunday, Oct. 4, I’ll be on two panels at the West Hollywood Book Fair in Los Angeles, Ca.
First up, at the ungodly hour of 11:00 am to 12:00 pm I’ll be on the DREAM ON DEMAND: VISION VS. MARKET PLACE panel along with guests Javier Grillo-Marxuach (Middleman), Mike Mignola (Hellboy) and Mark Waid (every comic book ever).
The panel will be moderated by the irrepressible Christine Boylan (Star Trek Manga 2 und 3). We’ll be in the Comics, SciFi & Beyond Pavilion. Directly afterward we’ll all be signing at The Comic Bug Booth from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm, though I might have to cut out early for my next panel in which…
I’LL BE INTERVIEWING COMICS SUPERSTAR BRYAN LEE O’MALLEY!!
Bryan is the creator of one of my favorite current comic book series, SCOTT PILGRIM! The book Publishers Weekly called “A great oddball tale that captures the energy of a generation”.
As we all eagerly await the closing volume of this mad, genius mash up of manga, kung-fu flicks, video games, rock n’ roll and early twenties romance angst (and await with great trepidation the upcoming movie directed by Edgar Wright and staring one-note actor Michael Cera), I’ll be talking with Bryan about his creation, the grinding six years it’s taken to complete it, his dealings in Hollywood and what he plans to do after his epic is finally finished. We’ll also open up questions to you, the weary and hardened masses.
That’s 1:00 pm-1:45 pm SCOTT PILGRIM: Bryan Lee O’Malley In Conversation with Joshua Dysart. There will be a signing with Bryan at The Comic Bug Booth afterwards.
All this Sunday!
