It’s time again for the Atlanta Days Of The Dead convention, happening this weekend at the Sheraton hotel downtown. I had a good time at their inaugural show last year, and I’m looking forward to an even better experience now that they’re actually IN Atlanta. I’m looking forward to seeing my pal William Stout, and lots of horror stars that have never appeared here before including Danny Trejo, Clu and John Gulager, and many more. I just wish they’d add more classic horror guests and events to their roster. Maybe next year…
Here’s actual proof that I used to have a lovely head full of hair, thanks to the diligent screen-capturing skills of Mark Maddox. This is from a scene in the James Garner – Shirley Jones – C. Thomas Howel movie TANK from 1984, in which I was a featured extra. Here’s a scene (that I am NOT in):
All together, I worked on TANK for five days, and had a great time. According to Mark, it’s currently available for streaming on NETFLIX, so take a look. The photo above is from the scene just after the biker’s jump a motorcycle into the mud to try and tow the tank to safety. As always, I’m a villain. 😀
I’m heading out to the Nashville Comic and Horror Festival at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds. I’ll be there Saturday and Sunday signing copies of Arctic Adventure!, The Future Was FAB; The Art of Mike Trim, Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea: The Compete Series: Volume II, and a bunch of magazines with my articles in them. Come see me!
I’m heading out to San Diego this week for Comic-Con – its hard to miss if you’re there, just head for the south water and follow the flocks of fans. No panels or signings this time around, though I’ll probably stop by the Hermes Press Booth (#450 if I recall correctly) if you want a Mike Trim book or anything signed.
Richard Starkings of Comicraft and writer of Elephantmen took the photo above – he’s already out setting up his booth (#2106, tell him I sent you). I’ll be there Wednesday-Monday, then I’m heading up to Los Angeles to do some business and see some friends. Do get in touch if you’d like to meet up!

Looks like Arctic Adventure!. my Thunderbirds™ novel, has been rescheduled for a late Summer release, but no firm date has been settled on. This is good news – it allows FTL Publications longer to promote the book and get the word out! Please do write and let them know how much you’re looking forward to reading Arctic Adventure! and ask them for a firm publication date! Here’s the address: email@example.com
