Big Horror Doings in Chicago this weekend (Cyphan, Cult Fiction and More!)

Once again, it's a great time to be in the Windy City, where we take our horror fun seriously!

First up, it's CULT FICTION: PAPER AND SKIN, hosted by Jude Mire

Friday, June 25th (TONIGHT!!!) Starting at 8 pm at
Lucky Number Grill, 1931 N. Milwaukee, in Chicago.

The featured stories (read by several friends and alums of WildClaw productions) are:

My Father's Skin by Michael Penkas
Anthony's Party by Brendan Detzner
An Itch to Scratch by Eric Cherry
Morbid Suit by Jude W. Mire

Indoor campfire tales - no mosquitoes, but plenty of booze. And S'mores for the adventurous types (those who can be trusted with fire.) The Lucky Number Grill is fast becoming the Chicago horror community neighborhood hangout, so get in on it now and make yourself a regular. Featuring drink specials and the grooves of DJ Evil Needle. More details found HERE.

Also, this weekend kicks off the Cyphan Science Fiction, Fantasy, & Horror show at the Westin Chicago North Shore in Wheeling, IL. The show runs from Friday the 25th through Sunday the 27th. With horror guests like Betsy Palmer, Adrienne King and Ari Lehman from the original FRIDAY THE 13th, as well as Stephen Geoffreys from FRIGHT NIGHT and 976-EVIL, and even Chicago's own Svengoolie will be there Saturday afternoon. Additionally, the amazingly talented gore artist Putrid will be at the Kitley's Krypt table on Saturday, where there will be some limited edition prints for sale (as well as the Paul Naschy t-shirts that he designed).

Have fun, everyone!
