Two Great Events on Friday, March 5th
There are two events on the same night that I'd like to get to - I'm going to do my best to hit both:
First, New York Times bestselling author Jonathan Maberry is launching The Dragon Factory, his follow up to the kick-ass thriller, Patient Zero. The Dragon Factory brings back Joe Ledger and the whole Department of Military Sciences team as they take on a pair of evil twins who are unloosing a genetic nightmare of transgenic monsters and genetically-enhanced mercenaries.
It's a three-for-one event, too: Jonathan will also be signing two other brand-new releases, The Wolfman, his novelization of the screenplay of the new film starring Benicio Del Toro and Anthony Hopkins, and a cool new anthology, The New Dead, from St. Martin's, a Zombie-themed anthology that has gotten high praise from critics.
The launch is at 7:00pm at Doylestown Bookshop, 16 S Main St. Doylestown, PA (215)230 7610
For those of you who are going to be downtown in Philly this Friday, you can hit the world premiere of Larry Withers' new documentary, David Goodis...To a Pulp, his fascinating and very personal investigation into the life of Philly's most notorious writer of noir fiction. Larry has put together a compelling look at the circumstances that brought an up-and-coming screenwriter back from LA to live out his days writing dark, unforgettable stories, hanging out in dives and blurring the line between his life and his doomed and luckless characters.
David Goodis...To A Pulp, a biography of noir writer David Goodis, has its world premiere, March 5 in Philadelphia at 8:30 p.m. at the Society Hill Playhouse, 507 South 8th Street, Philadelphia, PA 19107, 215-923-0210. $10 at the door.
