Today It’s All About Me: Halloween Book Signing
Posted on: September 26th, 2013 by Anthony Rapino

I don’t do this enough (or perhaps I do it too often?), but I have a big old stack of announcements that have been doled out piecemeal on Facebook and Twitter over the past weeks, and I want to get it all together in one place. I mean, here’s the thing.  I’m a horror writer, […]

Halloween Horror Movie Marathon 2013
Posted on: September 23rd, 2013 by Anthony Rapino

This is not the first time I’ve written about my horror movie  marathon exploits.  Nearly every year, around this time, I end up listing what I think are key movies to watch during October.  This year, however, I’m approaching it in a slightly different way.

This isn’t a Halloween Countdown

Because I celebrate Halloween every day. And yet, if you visit my site at any point during the next two months, I can promise you’ll find something Halloweeny.  If not Halloweeny, then at least horrory.  If not horrory, then some other word with a “y” added to the end. Today, I’m here for one reason: […]
