Local Author Ben Fisher

Join us in welcoming Ben Fisher (The Great DivideThe Misadventures of Grumpy Cat and Pokey) as he reads from C.H.U.D. Lives!, a horror tribute anthology featuring some of the best horror writers in the industry, who brought their “A-game” (Sci-Fi and Scary) and “Nailed it!” (Horror Novel Reviews).

C.H.U.D. is a genre defying, cult classic film featuring monsters living in the sewers below New York. The stories in this anthology expand the world created by the film and add depth to the C.H.U.D. universe like never before. From stories of apocalyptic horror and all out monster action, to tales of underground parties interrupted by uninvited guests and evening strolls that end in death, this anthology will leave you both smiling and breathless. Relive the fear as these original stories take you beyond the movie to events that occurred before, during, and after the scenes we remember so well.

You can get a taste of C.H.U.D. with “Get to Know Your C.H.U.D.”, a primer comic on the universe, here.

Local Author Lori L Lake

Join us for readings from Cooked to Death: Lying on a Plate, a new anthology featuring fifteen “deadly and delicious” mystery tales, each with an accompanying recipe!

If you’re looking for a recipe so good it’s to die for, search no further. We’ve got fifteen of them.

Lovers wage war with deviled eggs and artichokes. A world-class baker turns to desperate measures to win the contest of a lifetime. An orphaned teenage girl with nowhere left to go finally takes a stand inside a farmhouse kitchen. Lawyers, financiers, and law enforcement turn to the culinary arts to defend their careers and solve their cases. All these and more can be found within the pages of the second volume of the Cooked to Death series.

Fifteen mystery writers have pooled their literary powers and culinary acumen to craft a five-course meal full of surprises both deadly and delicious. And if the crimes uncovered by these sleuths are too much for your stomach, they’ve got the perfect thing to restore your appetite: each story is followed by an easy-to-make recipe that plays some crucial part in its preceding tale. The game is afoot, and the burners are alit! Enter if you dare–and make sure to bring a fork.
