All American Horror Stories @ City Lit Books

All American Horror.jpg For those not ready to be done with Halloween, drop by City Lit Books , 2325 N. Kedzie, for readings from All-American Horror of the 21st Century on Tuesday November 5 at 6:30pm.

Released this year on Wicker Park Press, the anthology features short fiction published in the first decade of the millennium. Edited by Mort Castle, professor of creative writing at Columbia College, the collection celebrates the unique style of American horror fiction.

At the event will be readings from contributors Sam Weller, biographer of Ray Bradbury; Wayne Allen Sallee, author of Holy Terror; New York Times bestselling author Jay Bonansinga; Wormfood author Jeff Jacobson; and Bram Stoker Award-winning author John Everson.

Books will be available, and authors will likely be signing the work, just not in their own blood. (Or will they?)
