Bavaria NW

Willkommen to America

Over the weekend I was in Leavenworth, Washington, a former railroad-and-timber town that reimagined itself as a Bavarian theme village in the late 1960s. The local indie bookstore, A Book For All Seasons, is always one of my favorite tour stops.

I also gave a reading at the Wenatchee Public Library. It turns out Nancy Pearl had been there a week earlier, saying nice things about Lovecraft Country and The Mirage, so we had a great crowd. Thanks to everyone who showed up!

My next event will be this Friday, March 18, at Pulpfiction Books on Main Street in Vancouver, BC, starting at 7 PM.

    The Cancer of Superstition was commissioned by Houdini for author C. M. Eddy, Jr. to write a book that would investigate ideas and trends of superstition throughout history from an outline and notes from H. P. Lovecraft. C. M. Eddy, Jr. wrote the manuscript that is going to auction. Eddy was a ghostwriter and investigator for Houdini. Eddy’s grandson has more info, Fenham Publishing has produced Eddy’s rediscovered stories from that era, the 1920’s.
