KillerCon 4 Day 2 Recap

KillerCon 4 Day 2 Recap

Day 2 of the KillerCon 4 festivities kicked off with the Pitch Sessions during which the convention attendees pitched their work to the publishers and agents with high hopes. Elsewhere, in the Sierra Room, the very talented William Gagliani, most renowned for his Wolf Cycle series, did an intense and interesting reading, or as he put it, he served as the opening act for a horror scribe who needs no introduction, Gene O'Neill, who (very commendably) uses his readings at conventions not to read from his own work, although he does mention some particular highlights of what he's got for sale in the dealer's room, but rather to share center stage with some up-and-coming writers whose works he feels deserve promotion. 

Next up, it was a crowded room for another horror writer who needs no introductionStephen King famously called him the scariest man in AmericaJack Ketchum, who read a selection from The Woman and answered some questions from eager fans about his own writing process, the origins of his pseudonym, and the film adaptations of his works.

As writers rushed off to the Self-Editing for Fiction Writers workshop led by the Editorial Department's resident horror editor, RJ Cavender, Brian Keene and Edward Lee gave entertaining back-to-back readings, which made for one hell of a two-hour reading line-up. Still, the most fun was seeing all three horror writers on the previous night's panel, “The Book Was So Much Better! Film Adaptations of Books,” which, incidentally, saw Jack Ketchum and John Skipp doing an impromptu interpretive dance, which was delightful ;-)

Kelley Armstrong, Maurice Broaddus, and F. Paul Wilson answered some fascinating questions from moderator Bailey Hunter about the state of young adult fiction in horror and dark fantasy on the "Why Strangers Have the Best Candy" panel, and recounted their own experiences of what led them to make the foray into the wildly popular and massively successful category. Ms. Armstrong made some particularly insightful contributions to the conversation, including the importance of not pandering or talking down to the teen audience or assuming that they wouldn't understand certain references, as well as the heightened and infectious level of excitement that teen readers exhibit in a way that's very different from adults. Maurice Broaddus referenced his work with special needs students and his experiences with his own sons as being vital to the formation of his young adult works, while F. Paul Wilson pointed to the challenges of getting into the head of a thirteen year-old and consulting his daughters about the pop culture of the early 80s for authenticity to his young Repairman Jack novels.

Those in the mood for thrills and chills went to the Alien Autopsy presentation by Pat MacEwan, while others flocked to make-up and FX artist Mike McCarty's “Zombie Effects: The Make-up of The Dead!” and reveled in the experience of getting some professional zombie make-up to showcase for the rest of the day.

Con attendees flocked to the dealer's room for the mass signing to get their books signed by some favorite authors, new authors, and to stock up on the best horror fiction up for grabs during the weekend. Samhain Horror authors had a particularly good experience with many authors selling through the stock they brought. Adam Cesare, Damien Walters Grintalis, and Brian Moreland were among the Samhain authors present at the con.

Monica O'Rourke and Adam Pepper each did readings followed by Maurice Broaddus. The next panel, “Plots and Characters That Should Die! Clichés in Fiction that Make Readers and Editors Cringe,” was one of the best of the weekend as the discussion, moderated by the always fabulous and entertaining Hal Bodner, kicked into high gear right away with panelists (including Don D'Auria, Robert Fleck, Gene O'Neill, John Skipp, Erik Williams, and Monica O'Rourke) chiming in about tropes vs clichés, when something becomes a cliché, and interestingly, the fact that even though writers are advised not to repeat them or imitate the writers who came before them stylistically and instead to find and show their own voices, readers still return to the tried and true clichés and keep buying the books we all deride for the most part, because they're comfortable, safe, and people know what they're getting. There was a high level of audience engagement and some very intelligent questions with equally intelligent answers. 

Benjamin K. Ethridge, John Palisano, Gene O'Neill, Brad Hodson, and others took part in a touching tribute to Michael Louis Calvillo, a bright and talented young author who we lost too soon.

Next up, the Creative Fiction Contest and the Gross-Out Contest both presented some interesting and highly entertaining pieces of fiction, with Mason Bundschuh taking home the prize for the former and this year's reigning World Horror Convention 2012 Gross-Out Champion Jason Reinhardt winning the latter.

The Deadite Press/Cutting Block Press party came next with people having an absolute blast  to cap off a jam-packed and intense but fun-filled second day at KillerCon 4.

KilleCon 4 Day 1 Recap

KillerCon 4 Day 1 Recap

After getting settled in yesterday and the KillerCon 4 Welcome Party sponsored by Samhain Books, attendees got this morning off to a great start with the Official Welcome to Our Guests of Honor, which kicked things into gear. 

F. Paul Wilson, one of our author guests of honor, had a reading followed by a Q&A, which mainly focused on his short story contribution to the Richard Matheson anthology, He is Legend. He answered some questions about writing YA vs adult, and he mentioned that he would like to write a spy thriller but that it wouldn't be a James Bond type of thing. Another of our guests of honor, William F. Nolan, also had an active and interesting reading and Q&A. 

Next up, attendees crowded into the suite for the panel called "It's the End of the World as We Know It: Dystopian Fiction and the Appeal of the Apocalypse" with panelists Maurice Broaddus, Brian Keene, and William F. Nolan. The tweets were definitely abuzz as panelists mentioned some of the reasons why they think dystopian fiction continues to grow in popularity and has endured for so long, mainly because when readers pick up such volumes, they remind themselves that things could be much worse. Although dystopian fiction generally has a bleak tone and worldview, people still want a happy ending and something to hope for. Several examples of the most effective dystopian horror fiction were mentioned, including Swan Song from Robert McCammon, as well as the beginnings of the sub-genre and the impact of science fiction elements.  

In the Hospitality Suite, guest of honor Mignon Fogarty hosted her "Grammar Girl's Quick and Dirty Tips for Fiction Writers" workshop to a dedicated bunch of enthusiasts while Cynthia Vespia, Mercedes M. Yardley, and Shane McKenzie all did readings, all of which were excellent. Yardley read from her latest work, Beautiful Sorrows, put out from Shock Totem while McKenzie, no stranger to Extreme Horror, read a tale from his twisted repertoire. 

One of the other interesting panels, "You're Doing it All Wrong! How we are All Fucking up the Genre and what we Can Do to Fix it," featured moderator John Skipp with panelists Brian Keene, Don D'Auria, F. Paul Wilson, Jack Ketchum, Edward Lee, and Kelley Armstrong discussing some interesting thoughts and getting into a lively discussion. Some of the reasons cited included the old guard isn't giving as much support to the writers coming up behind them, there has been a general soft-core approach to monsters in particular that has trivialized and romanticized them (although this has made them more popular with people who don't usually read horror), and that many self-published books fail to make the grade in terms of quality on many different levels and overwhelm an already saturated market in which writers must be more resourceful and hands-on than ever before. 

Guest of honor and New York Times bestselling author Kelley Armstrong hosted a reading and Q&A in which she read from both Bitten, her first Otherworld novel, and a recent short story she wrote for the Globe & Mail newspaper. She answered questions about her writing process, what's it's like to be a woman writing in a very female-dominated sub-genre with urban fantasy, the challenges of writing for younger readers with her YA books, and more. 

John Skipp showcased some of his directorial and producing skills by showing two short films and a trailer for another film he is working on, which led nicely into the panel, "The Book Was So Much Better!" about film adaptations of books in which moderator L.L. Soares led one of the most hysterical and most memorable panels. Speakers discussed the big screen adaptations of their works. Jack Ketchum, Brian Keene, Edward Lee, William F. Nolan, John Skipp, James Roy Daley and FX artist Mike McCarty regaled the audience with tales of their experiences on-set, both good and bad. Although Lee joined in a bit late, he and Jack Ketchum related his experiences filming a scene for one film, as well as his connection to Lady Gaga. John Skipp mentioned The Nightmare on Elm Street 5 and his work on that project while Brian Keene spoke about how the ending of Ghoul changed in the adaptation much to his chagrin. William F. Nolan lamented the unfortunate wardrobe choices made for the adaptation of Logan's Run but hopes the new one now in production will make some improvements. 

The Erotic Horror Fiction Contest also took place in the evening during which participants read their stories aloud and voted on the most titillating and frightening tale. Afterwards, an enthusiastic group gathered in the Hospitality Suite for the Shock Totem Press party, which was definitely the hip and happening place to be. 

We hope folks are enjoying the convention thus far, and look forward to a big and exciting day tomorrow!

He is also a contributing editor at Dark Continents Publishing and has worked closely with some of the most talented authors in the horror genre. 
KC: Wrath, you’ve been a veteran since the first KillerCon. How did that come about?
WJW: Well, KillerCon was at least partially my idea. I sort of stuck my foot in my mouth about how someone needed to start a writer’s convention in Las Vegas. That “someone” ended up being me with much needed help from Monica O’Rourke. 

KC: Bailey and R.J, at what point did you come on as organizers?

BH: RJ and I came on board near the end of Killercon 2 after seeing the effort and heart and soul Wrath was pouring into it given a major upheaval by the original venue. He had dedicated so much and it was clear support was needed. Being a west coast dweller, I saw the value of having such a con on the western side of the continent. Also, I saw it as an excellent opportunity to get some knowledge and experience under my proverbial belt should I want to submit a bid to have a bigger con come to Vancouver, BC in the future.

RJC: I had to miss the first KillerCon as I’d just landed a new job and I simply couldn’t take the time off work. So by the time I finally made it to Vegas for the second convention I was beyond stoked. And when I saw there was an opportunity to get involved with the convention, I decided since I live so close (in Tucson, AZ) and since an annual writers convention in Vegas is one of the best ideas I’ve ever heard of…well, it was a no-brainer for me. So I reached out to Wrath, asked Bailey if she’d be interested, and by KillerCon 3 I was setting up the pitch sessions and helping with Guest of Honor outreach. Best decision I ever made while drinking in Vegas. 

KC: Give us a bit of a recap on KillerCon 3. What was the process behind approaching the guests of honor, getting the word out at other cons and through social media, etc.?

BH: Lots of letters sent out back and forth first between the three of us as we threw several names in the hat, and then each of us reaching out to different prospective GoHs and seeing who responded.  We were all quite pleased at the response–even though we did lose a couple at the last minute.  Even with that, we were able to find stellar replacements.  As far as getting the word out, it was a lot of Facebook posting, talking it up at other cons like World Horror in Austin, TX and using the large group of friends and ‘family’ in the community to help us spread the word.

KC: Give readers some more details on the panels planned for this year’s con. What are your personal highlights?

BH: I’m really looking forward to the “Why Strangers Have The Best Candy: Writing Young Adult Novels” because more and more or our genre is reaching out to the youth market. I’m also looking forward to both Pat MacEwan’s and Mike D. McCarty’s panels. I’ll probably be sliding between the two.  The last one I’m very excited for is on Sunday“Why They Kill: The Psychology of Serial Killers” Q&A with Doctor Al Carlisle. He’s a clinical psychologist with first hand exposure and work with serial killers. I’ve always been fascinated with criminal psychology so I think it’s going to be a very intriguing panel.

KC: What’s the story with how you scored Grammar Girl, Mignon Fogarty, to come to the con? A grammar workshop isn’t exactly the first thing that springs to mind when one thinks of a horror convention, but is this a conscious effort to offer more to the large proportion of writers attending the event? 

BH: That was a great score! The gents get accolades for that one. We are a writer’s con.  Whether it’s novels, novellas, shorts or scripts, writing is the name of the game. We want to provide a well rounded convention experience where we are catering to knowledge and sharing of experience for writers of the dark genre. It is meant to be fun and informative. If you’re going to pay to come, it should be a worthwhile expense.

WJW: I’m a big fan of Grammar Girl’s series “Quick and Dirty Tips for Fiction Writers.” I often listen to it on the long, arduous journey to my day job. After the success of Mort Castle’s writing workshop at KillerCon3, I thought it made sense to bring in a leading grammarian to do a workshop. And since she’s one of the few I actually understand, it was an easy choice. 

KC: RJ, tell us a bit more about how the Self-Editing for Fiction Writers workshop idea came out, how you made it work, and give us a preview of some of the things you’ll cover.

RJC: Wrath had asked me, after reading Self-Editing for Fiction Writers by Renni Browne (the book that my employer and company founder at The Editorial Department co-wrote with editor Dave King) if I’d be interested in adapting it into a workshop for KillerCon this year. Since I’ve been using the book as a personal editing bible for the last two years and have attended the SEfFW workshop locally, I thought it would be a fantastic addition to the convention. I accepted as soon as I got approval from the home office. In a nutshell, the SEfFW workshop will teach authors what editors are looking for and how to objectively fine-tune their writing to make it more appealing to acquisitions editors. It’s a great book and I’m exciting to be teaching it! 

KC: You’re also bringing back Pat MacEwan who did the Forensic Blood Splatter event last year, and this time around, she’s doing an Alien Autopsy. Can you give us a sense of what that will be like? 

BH: Pat is awesome. Her event last year was standing room only and we’re very happy to have her come back. She will be delving into what forensics would be like on some less-than-human anatomy, some of the potential differences and similarities, and there will be a slide show. Pat has a lot of surprises in store, and will likely have a few tricks up her sleeve.

KC: There are also a number of publishers who will be having pitch sessions at the convention on September 21 & 22. Any tips on how writers should prepare? 

BH: As we did last year, there will be a ‘Pre-Pitch Panel’ that will include all those who are taking pitches. It will be sort of a round table panel, in which each of those taking pitches will offer some tips and tricks on how to pitch and what they are looking for. RJ made this suggestion last year and it’s a great way to give those putting their work out there a helping hand and calmed a few nerves, too.

RJC: If you’re going to pitch to a market in particular, then you’ll want to research them and find out what sort of manuscripts they’ll be looking for. Familiarize yourself with their publications, come to the pre-pitch editorial panel on Saturday directly before the pitch sessions to hear the editors themselves talk about what they are looking for, bring a pen and paper for notes, and you should be fine. 

KC: Besides casinos and the usual Vegas fare, do you have any sightseeing recommendations for KillerCon attendees while they’re in Sin City? 

BH: I’m afraid I have no idea. I generally don’t leave the hotel during a con except on the last day–too much to do. Vegas is a playground, though, and I’m certain there is something for everyone whether it’s lounging by the pool, shopping, shows, a quick day trip to the Hoover Dam, or if you arrive early and want to kill a day, even a drive down to Area 51 (look to the hills for those cameras).

WJW: Last year, we rented a limo Sunday night and took a bunch of people to Spearmint Rhino. So, I can definitely recommend that place. Good, wholesome, family place. I wouldn’t recommend bringing the kids, though. Not unless they’re over 21. And I’m a foodie, so I have to talk about Vegas’s culinary delights. Around the corner from the Stratosphere hotel is a sandwich shop called Capriottis. Best cheesesteaks outside of Philly. The Palms hotel has one of my favorite sushi restaurants, Little Buddha. The Mandalay Bay has an excellent French restaurant, Fleur de Lis.  

But you don’t have to leave the hotel if you want fine dining. Top of The World restaurant is excellent. You can cut the steak with a butter knife and the mashed potatoes are exceptional. I proposed to my wife at Top of The World. There’s also an Italian place on the main floor of the hotel that has excellent carpaccio. 

And if you’re not a foodie and you’re not in the mood to leave half your income in someone’s g-string, there are shows like Zumanity at New York, New York, Imagine at the MGM, “O” at the Belaggio, and of course our very own topless vampire extravaganza, “Bite” at the Stratosphere. We’re even giving out discount tickets to “CSI: The Experience” in the goodie bags.   

RJC: My biggest suggestion would be just to plan some extra time either before or after the convention for some sightseeing. We’ve got a zip-line event planned on Thursday night and I’ll certainly be hitting the Vegas Strip on Sunday with a group, but like any convention…when it’s going on you’ll probably want to stick close to the convention hotel and not miss any of the programming and events. You simply can’t do Vegas in one night or one trip, so don’t try to. Make a list of a couple of things you’d like to do and plan them in to your itinerary so as to not to take you too far from the convention while it’s in full swing. Plus, there’s a lot to do at The Stratosphere hotel as well…and we’ve got free booze. 

KC: What’s the part about KillerCon4 that each of you are most looking forward to?

BH: Seeing old friends, making new friends and knowing that our guests are having a great time from the moment they get up to when they pour themselves into bed. This is what is most important to me. This is what makes it completely worthwhile. Thanks for your time and I can’t wait to see everyone again!

WJW: The sex. There’s always lots of sex at KillerCon. Vegas is just one sexy place. It may have something to do with all the alcohol— and the strippers. Did I mention Spearmint Rhino?

RJC: More than anything, I’m just looking forward to seeing all of our friends again this year, partying throughout the weekend, then following up and working on projects for the remainder of the year. 

KillerConLV would like to thank Wrath, Bailey, and RJ for taking the time out of their jam-packed schedules to stop by for this interview! 

RJ Cavender will be involved in various events during KillerCon4, including the pitch sessions, as well as conducting the Self-Editing for Fiction Writers Workshop, both of which take place on Saturday, September 22. For more information, please visit the Schedule/Events page.

KillerCon 4 Interview: Brian Keene

KillerCon 4 Special Guest InterviewBrian Keene

Brian Keene has won two Bram Stoker Awards, one in 2001 for the non-fiction work Jobs In Hell and one in 2003 for his first novel The Rising. He is also the recipient of the 2004 Shocker Award for non-fiction for Sympathy for the Devil as well as many small and regional awards. He has been featured in the New York TimesThe Village Voice, Publishers Weekly,, The Howard Stern Show, Rue Morgue magazine, Fangoria magazine, and participated in a documentary for the History Channel. David Letterman once based a skit on a party at Keene’s home.

In addition to being a prolific writer, Keene is also a popular public speaker, and has been invited to speak at a number of libraries, high schools, bookstores, and conventions. He was also invited to speak at the Central Intelligence Agency headquarters in 2006 and 2007.

In 2004, The Rising was optioned for film and videogame adaptations. In 2005, City of the Dead was optioned for the same. In 2006, Terminal was optioned for film. Also in 2006, three stories from Keene’s Fear of Gravity were adapted in the graphic novel Brian Keene’s FEAR. The stories were “Castaways,” “Red Wood,” and the award-winning “The King, in: Yellow.” In 2007, Ghoul was optioned for film. In 2008, the short story “The Ties That Bind” was optioned for film, and it had its world premiere on April 4th, 2009 at the Garden State Film Festival.

In 2004 and 2005, Keene spearheaded a successful Books For Troops program, in which various horror authors supplied free, signed books to American troops serving in Iraq, Afghanistan, and elsewhere around the world. Keene was honored for this in 2005 by the 509th Logistics Fuels Flight Squadron based at Whiteman A.F.B. in Missouri.

In 2008, Marvel Comics announced that Keene would be writing for them. His first project for the company was the four-issue MAX series: Devil-Slayer.

KC: How did you first find out about the KillerCon Convention and what were your initial thoughts about a horror convention held in Las Vegas?  

BK: I was a guest of honor at the inagural KillerCon. At the time, my only real concern was thatbeing Vegasthere would be so many other things to do outside the confines of the hotel that the attendees would be scattered all weekend long. But that didn't happen. The convention staff put together such an awesome programming schedule that people were packed into the panels and readings all weekend long. We barely had any time to gamble! (laughs)

KC: What made you say yes again to being a special guest at KillerCon 4?

BK: Well, they asked me to come back for 2 and 3, but scheduling conflicts prevented it. Luckily, this year I was free and the moon and stars aligned.

KC: What are your favorite and least favorite moments at conventions?  

BK: I always enjoy meeting the folks who read my books, and shaking their hands and letting them know how much I appreciate their support, and hearing their thoughts on my various books. And it's always great to catch up with old friends, as well. Writing is like any other line of work. You have co-workers who you are friendly with or close to. But unlike other jobs, you really only get to see them at events like this. My least favorite moment is probably the bar tab that occurs after those first two things. 

KC: What are you most looking forward to at KillerCon4?

BK: See above.

KC: What can readers expect from you next?

BK: There are at least two novels and a comic book slated for release every month between now and December. Too many to list here. But folks can find all the info at


KillerConLV would like to thank Brian for taking the time out of his jam-packed schedule to stop by for this interview! :-)

KillerCon 4 Interview: Eric Red

KillerCon 4 Special Guest InterviewEric Red

Eric Red is a Los Angeles based motion picture screenwriter, director and author. His original scripts include The Hitcher for Tri Star, Near Dark for DeLaurentiis Entertainment Group, Blue Steel for MGM and the Western The Last Outlaw for HBO. He directed and wrote the crime film Cohen and Tate for Hemdale, Body Parts for Paramount, Undertow for Showtime, Bad Moon for Warner Bros. and the ghost story 100 Feet for Grand Illusions Entertainment. He created and wrote the Sci-Fi/Horror comic series and graphic novel Containment for IDW Publishing.

Eric’s recent published horror and suspense short stories include “The Buzzard” in Weird Tales magazine, “Little Nasties” in Shroud magazine, “In the Mix” in Dark Delicacies III: Haunted anthology and “Past Due” in Mulholland Books’ Popcorn Fiction. His short stories “Colorblind” and “Curfew” will be appear, respectively, in an upcoming issue of Cemetery Dance magazine and the Peep Show, Volume 2 anthology.

His first novel, a dark coming-of-age tale about teenagers called Don’t Stand So Close, was published in July.

KC: How did you first find out about the KillerCon Convention and what were your initial thoughts about a horror convention held in Las Vegas?  

ER: I was told about it through my publisher Paul Fry at SST Publications who just released my first novel, Don't Stand So Close.

KC: What made you say yes to being a special guest at KillerCon 4?

ER: KillerCon’s reputation, the interesting line-up of guests, and a horror literary convention taking place in Las Vegas were impossible to resist. 

KC: Can you share some amusing anecdotes from conventions past? What do you like and dislike most about conventions? 

ER: The best thing that ever happened to me at a con was meeting my wife Meredith at the Austin Film Festival in 2001, where I was a panelist and she was a filmmaker in the short film competition. We’ve been together ever since.

Conventions are generally a stimulating way to meet fans and socialize with colleagues in a more relaxed environment outside the business. My favorite conventions have been where the attendees come there to really get something out of it and make use of the panelists and guests. The traveling is occasionally a hassle but worthwhile as I’ve attended cons and festivals all over the world and in remote areas of the US. The only aggravation comes when the cons are disorganized, but that’s rarely the case.

KC: What are you looking forward to most at KillerCon 4?

ER: Seeing old friends and making new ones. And spending some time in Vegas, which is Disneyland for adults.

KC: What can fans expect from you next?

ER: My first novel,  Don't Stand So Close , a strong YA thriller, just came out and has been getting some great reviews and press. It’s the best thing I’ve ever written and I hope that people who enjoy my films will give the book a chance because they won’t be disappointed.

I begin shooting my next film, an epic horror western called The Guns of Santa Sangre, in New Mexico early next year. It’s based on my second novel and stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan, from Watchmen as the leader of trio of tough American gunfighters in 1880’s Mexico who go up against some very, very bad guys. It’s a rousing and scary shoot-em-up on a grand and supernatural scale.
