Due to the ongoing pandemic we took our annual appreciation of horror fiction and its authors to the internet and on September 5th and 6th we hosted our event. Video and audio of authors reading their original horror fiction were posted for just those two days. We have left three videos up as an example of what we did and invite you to settle in for some free chills.
