Zombie Week Day 3— David Emge and Mike Gornick

This was one of the two images used by Pittsburgh Magazine in their story about Dawn of The Dead, the other being a shot of George Romero, I believe they chose this image because it had one of the stars of the movie and the camera in the same shot. The technical part of film making was not as well understood back then and this 16mm Arriflex looked pathetically small compared to the 35mm cameras we were used to seeing.

You can purchase prints and cards of this image and others like it at Red Bubble.

Dawn of The Dead 40th Anniversary

Next weekend beginning June 8 Zombies will once again invade Pittsburgh and Monroeville. This year they come to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of George Romero’s cult classic Dawn of The Dead at The Living Dead Weekend.

Since I can not attend the event I have decided to make this week Zombie Week on my blog. All week I will feature behind the scene images from my book Zombie Nights: My Two Nights with the Loving Dead

Starting June 6 can also order a kindle version of Zombie Nights: My Two Nights With Living Dead for just $.99 by. To get your digital Kindle book click here.

The book features over 50 behind the scenes image plates and a stunning cover design by UK illustrator Peter Johnson. You can also purchase the trade paperback at Amazon link above.

Hope all my Zombie pals have a great convention and enjoy their time in Pittsburgh!

The Goldfinch

I have always loved Goldfinches. Tiny little flashes of gold traveling at high speeds. Then a number of years ago I heard the Ted Leo song, Golden Finch and found a new reason to love this little bird.

Last year I read the marvelous novel by Donna Tart and now every time I see a goldfinch I think of the book. This little guy was found at The National Aviary in Pittsburgh.

Zane Grey House

Most people think of Zane Grey as a man of the west. However when he took up writing full time and gave up his dental career in 1905 he moved to a house at the confluence of the Lackawaxen and Delaware rivers in Pennsylvania. He wrote a lot of his novels there before moving his family to California in 1918.

Today his a house is a beautifully maintained museum near a great spot to view Bald Eagles on the Delaware river.

Short Sabbatical

I am taking a short sabbatical from posting while I perform the second edit of our new DreamMap Novel entitled Worlds Apart. You may recall in the epilogue of DreamMap Jake and Rose teleport out with Stan who needs help with a problem. The second book starts in Dublin on Earth Prime immediately after they teleport. It is much darker than the first novel and ends with a series of twists and major cliffhanger pointing to the third book in the series.

I hope to be back soon with more images and posts but until then I will be off in a parallel world.
