THURSDAY October 20th at 7pm: CURSED

   

"A Wish Is A Terrible Thing"
CURSED

Tonight is a selection of stories of the Cursed...

It's a prick of blood, the bite of an apple, the evil eye, a wedding ring or a pair of red shoes. Curses come in all shapes and sizes, and they can happen to anyone, not just those of us with unpopular stepparents... 

CASTLE CURSED
Poem by Jane Yolen
The Curse begins…

AS RED AS BLOOD, AS WHITE AS SNOW
by Christina Henry
Snow did not find him charming. When she looked into his dark, dark eyes she saw not the fizzy delight of charm but the flicker of a tongue through sharp teeth.

TROLL BRIDGE
by Neil Gaiman
When Jack was a young boy, his world was full of ghosts and ghouls, but one such monster--a ravenous and hideous troll--would haunt him long into manhood.

CASTLE WAKING
Poem by Jane Yolen
The Curse ends…

THURSDAY October 6th at 7-8:30pm: Writer's Bloch

 


      "His words crashed against my consciousness"
WRITER'S BLOCH

Tonight is a selection of stories from Robert Bloch.
Each of these three stories tonight is a nod to two of Bloch’s favorite authors.. Poe and Lovecraft.

Robert Bloch wrote a fan letter to HP Lovecraft at the age of 16. Lovecraft encouraged the young boy to begin writing fiction and to submit his stories to Weird Tales magazine. Thus began a 60-year writing career that is one of the most distinguished in the horror and mystery field.
Bloch is today, of course, most famous as the author of Psycho.

He is also well-known for having said,
"Despite my ghoulish reputation, I really have the heart of a small boy.
I keep it in a jar on my desk."


The Man Who Collected Poe
Our narrator is a bibliophile going to meet the world's foremost collector of everything related to Edgar Allan Poe. Launcelot Canning is a third generation Poe collector, both his father and grandfather were obsessed with the writer. In fact, the grandfather built a Poesque mansion in the 1870s that Launcelot lives in now. The present Canning, though, crossed over into unhealthy monomania long ago.

The Secret in the Tomb
A man's quest for arcane knowledge and immortal life in a dank, dark, haunted tomb. Placing it easily with some of the best of Lovecraft’s works. Written when Bloch was just 17 years old.

The Suicide in the Study
A young wizard plans to hypnotize himself into two personalities, the good and the evil, with disastrous consequences for both, of course.
