Dr. Arnzen (in lieu of Spurlock)

In accordance to being unable to attend the Spurlock lecture (as we've started noticing, I had to work), I attended Dr. Michael Arznen's reading from his new book, Play Dead. Included in his readings were new poems he is working on, done in a workshop format taking comment and criticism from the crowd. He also read short stories from his other book, 100 Jolts, and from his Newsletter, The Gorelets, and even a Zombie story because "we're in the Monroeville Mall, where Zombies run rampant."

There was even a mockery of the "...for Dummies" series of books, in which Dr. Arnzen wrote "Stabbing for Dummies," a how-to guide in the fine art of stabbing someone to death.

I hadn't had much experience before with Dr. Arnzen, but my respect for him has grown immensley. He will lead the short-story writers group on Oct. 27 at the Monroeville Barnes and Noble in a Halloween themed meeting, as well as read and sign his books.

I'm glad I took that story. It was fun. It was...different.

A little more interesting than the French Canadians from Ubisoft talking about Prince of Persia 3.

Thanks for trekking out to Monroeville to attend my fiction reading. Glad you enjoyed it...and fought the zombie hoard in the mall to make it back alive!
