The Burning Effigy event, “An Evening with the Authors,” went very well, despite the rainy weather and the Grey Cup game. Thanks to Monica for setting it up, and thanks to fellow performers Jeff Cottrill and Tobin Elliott for helping to make it such a great night.
Colum McKnight of DreadfulTales.com videotaped the readings and I’ve included links to mine below. In the first one, I read a short excerpt from “Black-Eyed Kids,” while in the second one I read from a new, unpublished Felix Renn story, “Out of the Blue.”
Jason Darrick has also done an incredible write-up of the night’s festivities. Be sure to check it out.
In other news, The Man Eating Book Worm weighs in with a review of “The Ash Angels”:
“…The writing is mature and as professional as anything being stacked on the “Bestsellers!” table at Chapters.
With The Ash Angels Ian Rogers did me a solid. He affirmed my observations from his first chapbook, that a new talent had entered the literary world. The story is told with the same confidence and maturity, assuring the reader that they are in competent hands.”
Thanks to Dreadful Tales for recording the event, and to the Man Eating Bookworm for the excellent review!
