It’s All About Friends…Flashback Weekend Part 1

flashback2015-2This last weekend, we were at this year’s Flashback Weekend show, the only convention in our home state that we set up at. As usual we had a great time, though it did seem there were more Halloween fans seeking autographs than interested in buying books. But no worries. Maybe someday they will see the value in continuing and expanding their horror education. I can only hope.

None the less, we still had fun there. One of those reasons is because of friends. Sure, as we’ve said before, we always get to see and hang out with our convention family that we see at these events. And sure, we could always just have a get together and hang out without having to go to a con, which we do several times throughout the year. I have to say though, these conventions aren’t just about seeing old friends, but it’s about meeting and making new friends. The funny thing is that most of my convention family are friends BECAUSE I met them at a con. And it seems that at each new show, we meet another person that becomes a new member to our demented and dysfunctional family. I don’t think we’d have it any other way either.

HorrorHound Weekend in TWO DAYS!!!!

I don’t know about you, but I am more than ready for our first convention for this year’s Kryptic World Tour 2015, which happens to be the HorrorHound Weekend in Cincinnait Ohio this weekend….like in two days!!!! After the last couple of brutal work weeks, I am more than ready to hang out with a bunch of like minded horror fiends, and have some fun and serious conversations about horror movies!

Of course, we will be set up there with a wide range of amazing titles to add to your horror reference library. And I can guarantee that you won’t find titles on my table that are $180! I’m more interested in getting this volumes to good homes, where horror fans can learn more about this amazing genre, and to truly Discover the Horror.

And did I mention they are having a Re-Animator reunion?

So if you coming out to the show this weekend, make sure you stop by our table and say hello.
