Halloween horror stories read by Kenny Gannon and Flynt Burton
Thursday, October 29
7:30 p.m. in Leggett Theater
Join Miserly Wade Newhouse, Wretched Flynt Burton and Sheer Terror Gannon for a special reading of Neil Gaiman’s The Horror! Mr. Gaiman has granted Peace College Theatre special permission to read an hour of his thrilling, chilling, bizarre and most unnatural stories.
Neil Gaiman has been successful in almost every genre of contemporary creative writing. His novels include such recent fantasy classics as Neverwhere, Stardust, Anansi Boys, and the New York Times bestseller American Gods. His novel for children Coraline was awarded the prestigious Hugo and Nebula Awards for "Best Novella" as well as the Bram Stoker Award for "Best Work for Younger Readers" and was made into a popular animated film last year. Gaiman has also won awards for his graphic novel series The Sandman and co-wrote the screenplay for the 2007 film adaptation of Beowulf. His most recent novel, The Graveyard Book, is a fantasy-horror epic inspired by the Rudyard Kipling classic The Jungle Book, and it won the coveted Newberry Medal for children’s literature in 2009. We thank Neil Gaiman’s agents at Writers House for permission to perform some of his short fiction tonight. These stories and poems come from collections of Gaiman’s shorter work entitled Fragile Things and Smoke and Mirrors.
