Join us as Christopher Buehlman, one of the leading lights in contemporary horror and dark fantasy fiction, unleashes his latest novel, The Lesser Dead, on unsuspecting patrons at The Liberty Bar. As an experienced performance artist, Buehlman will have us spellbound on the edge of our seats with a reading that will strike shivers down our skinny little spines. BookPeople will be on hand with copies of The Lesser Dead. Buehlman will sign books after the reading.
About The Lesser Dead:
New York City in 1978 is a dirty, dangerous place to live. And die. Joey Peacock knows this as well as anybody–he has spent the last forty years as an adolescent vampire, perfecting the routine he now enjoys; womanizing in punk clubs and discotheques, feeding by night, sleeping by day with others of his kind in the macabre labyrinth under the city’s sidewalks.
About Christopher Buehlman:
Christopher Buehlman is a writer and performer based in St. Petersburg, Florida. He is the winner of the 2007 Bridport Prize in Poetry and a finalist for the 2008 Forward Prize for best poem (UK). He spent his twenties and thirties touring renaissance festivals with his very popular show Christophe the Insultor, Verbal Mercenary. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in French Language from Florida State University, where he minored in History. He enjoys theater, independent films, chess, archery, running, cooking with lots of garlic, and thick, inky, bone-dry red wines with sediment at the bottom.
