Halloween Countdown, Supplemental

As a follow-up to my earlier countdown post today, I wanted to tell/remind you of two very worthy Halloween-related Kickstarters in progress that are closing at the end of the month. I invite you to join me in supporting these and/or helping pass along the word. Many thanks!

* First, I have been a fan of Jeffrey Combs for many years, and his portrayals of Edgar Allan Poe (in television's Black Cat and his one-man show Nevermore) are simply outstanding. I had a chance to talk with him about Poe last year at ConCarolinas, and I thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated his insights into the author. He takes Poe very seriously, and I take this Kickstarter very seriously. Let's make a feature film of Nevermore happen!

Master Horror director Stuart Gordon, brilliant actor Jeffrey Combs, and inspired screenwriter Dennis Paoli -- the team that brought you From Beyond and Re-Animator - team up again to bring you a brand new feature film: NEVERMORE. Visit the Kickstarter campaign.

* Second, every year, Popcorn Press celebrates Halloween by publishing a collection of horror poetry and short fiction. Previous years have included Vampyr Verse (2009), The Hungry Dead (2010), Halloween Haiku (2011), and Cthulhu Haiku (2012). This year the topic is Cthulhu Haiku II and More Mythos Madness, a collection of works inspired by H.P. Lovecraft. If the project gets 100 backers (with as little as $2 contributed per backer), an audiobook version of Cthulhu Haiku II will be recorded. Awesome, no? Visit the Kickstarter campaign.

from Cthulhu Haiku...
