A brief visit into SL late on Friday afternoon to put an event poster out in my booth on Book Island and I happened to run to Emz Mazie, writer and podcaster. We chatted for a few minutes, and she passed along an invitation and a note card to the "Horror Fest 2008" event going on today, Saturday the 23rd of August. Emz is the "Toast Mistress" for the event and will be welcoming two writer guests of honor, Mark Eller (Bearon Schoonhoven) and Elizabeth Draper (Lizard Yokosuka). Additionally, as part of the activities an SL Vendor Guest of Honor, Mars Bracken & Lyle Maeterlinck from "Liquid Designs" the owners of the "BLOOD" store along with an SL Fashion Designer Guest Of Honor, from "All Dolled Up", Fauve Aeon and Aberdon Enigma will be recognized in the opening ceremonies beginning at 8:30 am SLT at the Lower Pits of Hell Amphitheatre.
The day will be packed with events and activities for SL residents and fans of the genre, including interviews, readings, a fashion show, "Zombie Target Practice" and a Vampires Bloody Ball. The closing ceremony will begin at 8:30 pm SLT tonight.
