Coming to the Cocteau

We have some great stuff coming to the Jean Cocteau Cinema in the weeks to come.

Starting this weekend, when we'll be showing the classic BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN.

Come Tuesday, we'll have another author event, this time featuring... yes, ME.

A KNIGHT OF THE SEVEN KINGDOMS came out October 6 and has been riding high on the lists. And Tuesday October 27 is the official release date for both Bantam's official ICE AND FIRE adult coloring book, and Tor's reissue of Wild Cards volume five, DOWN & DIRTY.

All three titles will be available for sale at the JCC. MELINDA SNODGRASS will be on hand as well, to interview me. A question-and-answer will follow, and then I will adjourn to the lobby to sign books (but no personalizations, sorry). However, tickets are already half-gone for this one, and we anticipate another sellout... so if you want to join us, contact the theatre (by phone or via our website) and reserve a book and a place now.

Come Halloween weekened, we'll be showing something old and something new... ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW (with a live performance by Rocky Horror New Mexico) and THE CREEPING GARDEN, a film about... wait for it... SLIME MOLD. (Where else but the JCC?)

Tickets to all of these events can be bought on the JCC website: http://www.jeancocteaucinema.com/

November is looking pretty cool as well, with author events coming up for DEBORAH HARKNESS and the WHEEL OF TIME COMPANION, and burlesque with the SUICIDE GIRLS.

See you at the Cocteau!

I see it's going to be like Halloween town there at camp George with classic horror, your Q&A and Rocky. In all seriousness, I hope there's a video of the Q&A as I just love to hear what you have to say about life, the universe and everything (that the main stream version of the web hasn't said)

Oh how I wish this was on a weekend. Too soon to take off of work :(

My husband and I caught "The Creeping Garden" at Montreal's FantAsia Festival in, I think, 2014 (might have been 2013) - whoever knew slime mold could be so incredibly fascinating! I hope your audience enjoys it as much as we did!

My mother saw the original Frankenstein as a child, possibly teenager, and I remember her telling me how terrified she was, so terrified she practically crawled into my grandmother's lap and hid her face. Mom was the kind of person Frankenstein's monster would have run from in fear, but as a child he scared her out of her wits and made her cry. She said she had nightmares for months after that.

Monsters brought to life by the likes of Boris Karloff in an age where the Great Depression held sway were frightening to the people and they were innocent of the kinds of monsters we create daily in every medium, yet it is funny and a little sad that we have lost the kind of innocence that found Frankenstein terrifying, which puts me in mind of The Exorcist when it hit the theaters with tales of women fainting in the aisles and giving premature birth. I remember how my girlfriend and I checked the car thoroughly, including underneath it, before we would get inside after seeing the movie. Now we take the horrifying monsters, ghouls, and foulest creatures computers and the human mind conjure without blinking or even a half gasp.

Will you have the American and the UK editions on hand for A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms?
