Confirming Wizard World Chicago Appearance
From David Mack:
Yes! I figure this is about a month in advance, so close enough for people to be thinking about attending the show and sounding off about being there.

-Original art work
-11x17 prints
-The new Kabuki: The Alchemy hardcover!
-The Shy Creatures kid's books!

-All of the Reflections art books!
-And more!

(I may even have The Daredevil / Echo trade paperback Vision Quest, which is out of print and hard to find)

Permission Granted for Kabuki-Inspired Fan Shirts
When asked if fans can make their own Kabuki-inspired shirts, David Mack replied:
Yeah, that's fine if you make shirts of Kabuki. I don't remember what image in the back of that book you mean, but, in general, I tend to be encouraged when I see personally made Kabuki-related T-shirts.

Reaction to Kabuki: The Alchemy
After reading that a fan experienced a mild panic attack while reading Kabuki: The Alchemy, David Mack wrote:
Well, it was intended to not promote panic attacks so much as inspiration and motivation...

But maybe if Chuck Palahniuk can write stories that make people pass out or vomit... I guess maybe I can live with books that promote panic attacks...


Maybe that is just the beginning tickles of inspiration?

Desperation is the mother of invention, right? More than neccesity, even.

Remembering John Keel
From David Mack:
Rest in Peace John Keel.

He died July 3.

Cryptozoologist Loren Coleman was on Coast last night to say some words about him and their correspondence together.

Release Date Anniversaries
