Horror Christmas Kick Off!

Another quality post brought to you by Steve!

Hey, everybody!

Cue Andy Williams's slightly creepier older brother, because it's almost the most wonderful time of the year (for horror fans.)  That's right, Halloween, a.k.a Horror Christmas is just under five weeks away, and if the Hallmark Channel can start playing Christmas movies on October 22 (don't ask me how I know that...seriously, just don't ask) then clearly I can start celebrating all things pumpkin spice on September 28.

This year I got to ring in the creepy season with an event I've spent almost seven months planning.  Not seven months because it was particularly logistically complicated, but seven months because of the goddamned epidemic.  I had planned to host a book signing at my balloon store in March of this year.  That fell through, for obvious reasons.

But, after much vacillating back and forth and discussions with my partner and crew, we finally put together a virtual listener mailbag episode of The Horror Show With Brian Keene...three weeks after the podcast was unexpectedly retired.

Yeah, has anybody else found 2020 to be a weird fucking year?

Anyway, the reason I wanted to share this with you pretty ricky-tick is a time-sensitive one.  For the first time ever my store is selling an item which can be mailed anywhere in the US.  Normally we only do local delivery.  But in honor of our guests, you can pick up a Horror Show-themed balloon pack here.  I know people in the horror community are always looking for new and exciting things to fill the house with during Horror Christmas, and these creepy (and in some cases, glow-in-the-dark) balloons are just the thing.  But!  Only while supplies last.

And as for the Q&A itself, it was a blast.  There were special guests, there was some light ribbing, all the stuff you've come to expect from The Horror Show, except you can see everybody's faces.  You can watch the whole event here or in the embed below.  And if you want to see all the balloon sculptures featured in the event in all their creeptacular glory, you can find them on the event page here.
