Deep Carnivale 2010

Entrance to Deep Carnivale, which took place in the Performing Arts Building at Hillsborough Community College in Ybor City (Tampa, FL).

I attended Deep Carnivale on September 11, 2010. Thanks to David Audet and all the volunteers for putting on a great event!

The gallery.

More artwork, plus costumes.

The Performing Arts Building's A/C was in top form -- so much so that I ran out to my car for a change of clothing. I ditched my shorts for long pants and threw the denim shirt you see here over my shortsleeved print shirt.

Shown here is part of my display, which included:

1. Deviations: Covenant (paperback, Aisling Press).
2. Covenant and Appetite on CD (click here for more info and free downloads).
3. Riffing on Strings: Creative Writing Inspired by String Theory (Scriblerus Press, IPPY Silver Medalist; contains my story "Arachne").
4. Unspeakable Horror: From the Shadows of the Closet (Dark Scribe Press, Bram Stoker Award winner; contains my story "Memento Mori").
5. Issue 14, Electric Velocipede (Hugo Award winner; contains my story "Hermit Crabs," which is on the recommended reading list in The Year's Best Science Fiction, 26th Annual Edition). I am now down to my display copy. "Copies will be available soon at Night Shade Books," according to the EV website.
6. Oct./Nov. 2009 Asimov's (Contains my novelette "Flotsam" and poem "Derivative Work").
7. Vampyr Verse (Popcorn Press; contains my poem "Neighbors").
