10/11-11/3: Scorpius Dance Theatre's 'Vampire Tale' in Phoenix - Ninth Year!
- So beautiful, fun, dark, and sensual. Go if you get the chance. It is at the Phoenix Little Theatre, so there's not a bad seat in the house. Being in the front row was pretty awesome.
- The week of Oct. 21-28 they will be traveling to Whitby, England for the Bram Stoker International Film Festival, where they will be performing on the 26th.

*Artistic License by Emerian Rich is on sale now!
- "Like DORIAN GRAY if penned by Jane Austen and presented by Rod Serling" -- I've been blurbed!
- When the podnovel is produced, Michelle and I will be voicing Captain and Mrs. Randall. But don't wait for that, go grab that paperback now! Trust me, the novel is great for fans of both horror and romance!

Final episode of the season for Horror Addicts dropped Oct. 21th!
- Listen to hear who wins GothHaus 3: The Gothmazing Race, hear music from our friends À Rebours, part two of my interview with author Jeff Mudgett, Marc's interview with author Mike Bennett, David's interview with director Willo Hausman, Emz's interview with best-selling novelist Andrew Neiderman, and SO Much More It's Scary!
- I think this has been the best season of Horror Addicts EVAR and I'm looking forward to next season!

Wander Radio- Jack Hosley recently interviewed me for his podcast again. It should air around Halloween.- You will hear my voice in his new audio drama production Free Air/Pirate Radio.

One-shot Motion Comic for The Strain is available to watch online.
- This one-shot teaser was very well done. I hope they do more, but hey, there's always the dead-tree comic and the novels.
- I have to blame Tabz for sharing this with me. Turns out that Geek and Sundry produced this bit of awesome.

Gail Carriger on Sword & Laser
- Speaking of Geek & Sundry, their show Sword & Laser invited Gail over for tea and a great chat. Hijinks ensue!- Alessandro Tarabotti backstory hinted at. If that's not already on her to-do list, I hope that she'll consider writing it.

The Living Vampire ~ A Social Survey
- "In order to gain a deeper understanding of the knowledge base and the perceptions of and about modern vampirism the following survey concentrates more on the social/sociological aspects of the sub-culture. It represents an opportunity both to add to the already accumulated store of demographic knowledge that we have and also to present the sub-culture in a light that is not tainted by fiction, fantasy and ghastly newspaper headlines. The survey will be conducted over three months, October, November and December of 2012."

// THE VAMPIRE DIARIES
- The fourth season premiered Oct. 11th.- The second episode, "Memorial" had me ballin'!
- SPOILERS!

// LOST GIRL (WITHDRAWALS)
* More discussion from PythonDen...
- My point was that since she is Fae, they call her a "succubus" because she feeds on sexual energy. The vamp from the first season is a vamp because he fed on blood.
It wasn't because she isn't human, but because that is what the show's Fae terminology for her is. No one calls her a vampire. Therefore she isn't one.As I said: Since she is Fae and they have their classifications of light, dark, and underfae, along with individual species, they have determined that blood drinking equals vampire and sexual energy equals succubus.

- They hosted her Horror Addicts and Night Knights/Dusk's Warriors podcasts, but now she needs to find a new host.
- From an email (which Emz has yet to receive, but found from another displaced podcaster) "Mevio has delivered emails to all of our registered and active producers informing them of the current change in direction Mevio has taken from audio podcasting to online short form video entertainment. We sincerely apologize if you did not receive the email."
- She is no longer writing The Vampire Diaries books nor The Secret Circle books. It looks like the last one that she wrote was Midnight.
- Her Night World books published by Simon Pulse (Simon & Schuster) are her other series.

// INTERVIEW
* I had an excellent interview with Emerian Rich, author of Night's Knights, vampire novel and podiobook, and hostess of the Horror Addicts podcast.
- In April, Dragon Moon Press will have a new paperback anthology of short stories by podcasting authors entitled, THE POD COMPLEX. In addition to Emerian Rich, the authors include Jack Mangan, J. Daniel Sawyer, Scott Sigler, Tee Morris, Mike Bennett, Jared Axelrod, Phil Rossi, Justin R. Macumber, Marie Bilodeau, E. A. Zefram, Tim Reynolds, J.D. Williams, Jennifer Rahn, and Alexander T. Crisp.
-We talked about many awesome things, including the German horror-comedy "Night Of The Living Dorks". Because of her enthusiasm about it, I started watching it and I agree that it is hilarious. I liken it to "American Pie" with zombies. Two gnawed-off thumbs way up!
