Hard to believe it’s been a year since the first ALL HALLOWS READ… But it has, so… deal.
Regardless of how you may feel about the passing of time, ignore your impending doom, join the fun and give a creepy, spooky or … I dunno, freaky book to those you’d normally pass off a box of Nerds. Or hand out both… Love them Nerds.
For more information or details regarding this wonderful idea for an instant tradition (and it’s creator), check the link http://www.allhallowsread.com/
Until next time, Please be safe out there!

Get this… There’s a guy out there named Christopher Salmon and he’s working on what you might call a dream project based on a short story called “the Price” by another guy named Neil Gaiman. Cool, no? Neat thing about it is that something great has happened for Christopher and he needs our help to make it even greater and to make it ”something great” that happens for all of us.
This is basically what went down… Christopher (like many) read this cool story, he’s inspired (like some) to make it into an animated piece and from his pitch, he actually gets the thumbs up from none other than Neil himself to move ahead on the project (Like when does this ever happen?). HOLY GUTS!!! this is huge and it would be the equivalent of say… (place the name of your creative idol here) giving you the thumbs up to present their personal material to the entire world from your perspective… you’re vision… your hands. That’s enormous and DAMMIT, I wanna see it happen for him. Here’s the catch… There’s a price tag attached to bringing this piece to life the way Christopher see’s it and it’s not cheap, he’s looking for help via Kickstarter.com and he’s looking to us for it. Christopher’s put together a beautiful example of what the end result will look/feel like and I believe that once you’ve seen it, you’ll feel me on this. I’ve attached some links for you to (PLEASE) check out, one is for a short video outlining the idea in it’s current state of development (beautiful) and then there’s a link for Neil Gaiman’s blog where he basically says the same thing I just said (only a whole lot better).
Please check out the video below and thanks for lookin’
Oh yeah and as dorky as it sounds, I like to wish the Dream King and HAPPY 50TH BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!

I have something to explain…
I’m easy… I’m an easy person… If someone I like or admire tells me something, I believe it. I take things at face value and though this has gotten me into trouble a time or two, more often that not, I do get to experience something new and exciting and then BLAM!!! life happens… right there in the kisser. I’m also a holiday guy… I’m forever looking for a reason to celebrate, decorate, give and receive gifts or just party… THIS is the reason for todays blog post. A person I admire (Neil Gaiman) has put it out to the world that he believes that there simply aren’t enough “instant holidays” that expressly involve the giving of books as gifts. So he’s thinking that this should be something that we (the world) do… Hmmmm. Well, lets see… I’m easy (as stated above), crazy for holidays (or any other given distraction from the mundane), I love me some Neil Gaiman and there’s no way in heck that this could cause harm to anyone… LET’S FRIGGIN DO IT!!!! Neil (who I can only assume is now a god because I guess I figure only gods can put days on calendars) wants us to give scary or creepy books to people during the week of Halloween. He’s provided some names and resources to help us along if need be, so go check his blog or visit allhallowsread.com and HAPPY ALL HALLOW’S REEEEEAAAAAD!
I wonder if Hallmark has any sorta special edition All Hallow's Read tree ornaments in the works for this one yet?
Okay so anyway, that explains the above posted Zombie (a request from my good friend Brett Reighn).
WOW. all this and there’s only 1 day, 9 hours and a bunch on minutes and seconds left until DEEP SPACE TRAGEDY goes live. Craaaaaazzzzzy Days!
