The weird and the horrific trigger a primal fear within us. They can fill us with dread—and also be a lot of fun! Join us for an afternoon of readings and conversation with two veteran authors of the dark fantastic. David Annandale’s Gethsemane Hall is “that rarest of books: a genuinely chilling horror novel” (Quill & Quire), while The Damnation of Pythos is the latest in the bestselling Warhammer 40,000 series. The National Post calls David Nickle “a worthy heir to the mantle of Stephen King.” His latest book, Knife Fight and Other Struggles, is a set of pitch-black tales that span space, time, and genre.
