Meet acclaimed horror author Josh Malerman at Windsor's Super Summer Comic Con July 5th!

Windsor Comic Cons is excited to announce a very special first-time guest to our shows - horror author Josh Malerman - whose first novel "BIRD BOX" is not only currently in development for a feature film by Universal Studios Entertainment - but has also drawn raves from the likes of noted authors Peter Straub and Hugh Howey. It has also been nominated for both the James Herbert Award and a Bram Stoker Award (given out by the Horror Writers Association). Malerman, who has also released the novella "GHASTLE AND YULE" will be appearing at our July 5th Super Summer Comic Con at the Caboto Club!
There, Malerman will provide attendees with a true horror treat - two readings from "BIRD BOX" while audience members are blindfolded - all the better to get into the spirit of a book described as such: "Something is out there . . . Something terrifying that must not be seen. One glimpse and a person is driven to deadly violence. No one knows what it is or where it came from. Five years after it began, a handful of scattered survivors remain, including Malorie and her two young children. Living in an abandoned house near the river, Malorie has long dreamed of fleeing to a place where her family might be safe. But the journey ahead will be terrifying: twenty miles downriver in a rowboat—blindfolded—with nothing to rely on but Malorie's wits and the children's trained ears. One wrong choice and they will die. And something is following them. But is it man, animal, or monster?"
The multi-talented Malerman - who is also the lead singer of the Detroit band The High Strung whose song "The Luck You Got" is the theme song for Showtime Networks' hit show Shamless - believes Inspiration is a monster that tricks artists in to waiting around all the time. And Writer's Block is one of Inspiration's minions.
Don't miss your chance to meet one of today's fastest-rising horror voices - Josh Malerman - at the Super Summer Comic Con, Sunday, July 5th at the Caboto Club. Welcome to the fun, Josh!
