Local and internationally known horror authors will speak and sign copies of their books throughout the day, which also includes a movie screening; a round of “Improvisational Horror,” where authors will create a horror story on the spot with the help of props; and, of course, the screaming contest.
Check out some of the scheduled authors:
- Chet Williamson, author of nearly 100 short stories and 20 full-length novels, including a collection of short stories, “Figures in Rain,” that won the International Horror Guild Award.
- York county author and editor Brian Keene, two-time winner of the Horror Writer’s Association’s Bram Stoker Award and writer for Marvel and DC comics. Read more about his novel “Ghoul,” which was turned into a film and aired on Chiller in April.
- John Sabol, archeologist, researcher and ghost communicator. He’ll take a look at two Emporium ghosts tonight and present his findings Saturday
- Author Kelly Owen, who will read from her novels and speak on breaking into the horror genre.
Horrible Saturday runs 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the bookstore, 343 W. Market St., York.
