Here's a classic episode of Rod Serling's THE TWILIGHT ZONE about ... what else? ... books. My anthology, Bound for Evil: Curious Tales of Books Gone Bad contains 67 such tales; horror, SF, fantasy, and mystery stories that probe the darker side of books. Enjoy this video while there's still time -- before the books have the last laugh!
"Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read."---Mark Twain
This is only the 2nd year of the Awards. And I think ReaderCon is the perfect place to introduce Bound for Evil to a wider audience. When I conceived of the anthology my great desire was to remind would-be readers of the power and the mystique of books. Wonderful books, magical and mysterious. Sometimes even dangerous. And now my fat little antho is headed for ReaderCon, a celebration of books and writers, editors and publishers, and the glory of the written word.
Sigh! Valhalla awaits!
Writer's Quote: "Easy reading is damn hard writing."---Nathaniel Hawthorne
