The most wonderful time of the year! CLICK THE PIC for the COFFIN HOP LIST!
What, pray tell, is a Coffin Hop? You may well ask…
COFFIN HOP is a week long celebration of all things Horror. All things Literary. All things Hippity-Hoppity.
In short, it is a grand exultation of the Indie Horror Writing Community.
In more expansive terms, it is the week of October 24th – 31st, wherein a collective of sometimes hundreds of Independent Horror Writers, Artists and other Connoisseurs get together to make magic, share their wares, brighten the Autumnal Darkness and make you, the readers and visitors, a whole lot happier. This year there are more than 75 entrants (down a little from last year, but what we lack in quantity, we sure as hell make up for in quality) each of whom is offering up prizes, contests, freak shows, pupkin carving contests, and all manner of craziness… all in the name of that most hallowed of eves. Click to go to the COFFINHOP.COM main page, where you will find an easily clickable list of everyone involved, kind of a HUB OF EXTREME MAGNIFICENCE, if you will… and visit back here as often as you can, as I am planning on having many tricks and treats over the next week.
