CA – Anne Rice Signing

000_arice-atlantis

Author Anne Rice appears in conversation with Christopher Rice, to discuss and sign Prince Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis: The Vampire Chronicles on Thursday, December 8, 2016 at 7:00 PM. Tickets available at the link…

At the novel’s center: the vampire Lestat de Lioncourt, hero, leader, inspirer, irresistible force, irrepressible spirit, battling (and ultimately reconciling with) a strange otherworldly form that has somehow taken possession of Lestat’s undead body and soul. This ancient and mysterious power and unearthly spirit of vampire lore has all the force, history, and insidious reach of the unknowable Universe.   It is through this spirit, previously considered benign for thousands of vampire years and throughout the Vampire Chronicles, that we come to be told the hypnotic tale of a great sea power of ancient times; a mysterious heaven on earth situated on a boundless continent–and of how and why, and in what manner and with what far-reaching purpose, this force came to build and rule the great legendary empire of centuries ago that thrived in the Atlantic Ocean.   And as we learn of the mighty, far-reaching powers and perfections of this lost kingdom of Atalantaya, the lost realms of Atlantis, we come to understand its secrets, and how and why the vampire Lestat, indeed all the vampires, must reckon so many millennia later with the terrifying force of this ageless, all-powerful Atalantaya spirit.

SF Sketchfest is thrilled to celebrate the 40th anniversary of “The Kentucky Fried Movie,” the mother of all sketch comedy anthology films. Written by a Wisconsin-based comedy trio known as Kentucky Fried Theater (Jim Abrahams, David Zucker and Jerry Zucker) and directed by comedy filmmaking icon John Landis, the groundbreaking film has achieved cult classic status. Zucker, Abrahams & Zucker went on to create the classic comedies “Airplane!” and “The Naked Gun!” and Landis went on to direct “National Lampoon’s Animal House,” “The Blues Brothers,” “Clue,” “Three Amigos!” and many more. This rare reunion of four incredible comedy legends is a must-see.

SF – Anne Rice Signing

000_arice-atlantis

Author Anne Rice appears at the Aquarium of the Bay to introduce and sign her new book – Prince Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis – on Friday, December 2, 2016 at 6:30PM.

Tickets available from Book Passage: $20 (includes entry to aquarium and a $5 voucher towards book purchase)

At the novel’s center: the vampire Lestat de Lioncourt, hero, leader, inspirer, irresistible force, irrepressible spirit, battling (and ultimately reconciling with) a strange otherworldly form that has somehow taken possession of Lestat’s undead body and soul. This ancient and mysterious power and unearthly spirit of vampire lore has all the force, history, and insidious reach of the unknowable Universe.

It is through this spirit, previously considered benign for thousands of vampire years and throughout the Vampire Chronicles, that we come to be told the hypnotic tale of a great sea power of ancient times; a mysterious heaven on earth situated on a boundless continent—and of how and why, and in what manner and with what far-reaching purpose, this force came to build and rule the great legendary empire of centuries ago that thrived in the Atlantic Ocean.

And as we learn of the mighty, far-reaching powers and perfections of this lost kingdom of Atalantaya, the lost realms of Atlantis, we come to understand its secrets, and how and why the vampire Lestat, indeed all the vampires, must reckon so many millennia later with the terrifying force of this ageless, all-powerful Atalantaya spirit.

Prince Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis deepens Rice’s vampire mythology as it brings together the ancient worlds and beings of the Vampire Chronicles and opens up to us a whole new universe of characters, history, storytelling, and legend. Anne Rice is the author of thirty-five books.

NYC – Young Scrooge Signing

000_bow-rlstine

Join us on Saturday, December 3rd at 1:00 PM for an afternoon full of delightfully frightful tales with the master of goosebumps himself, the inimitable R.L. STINE! Your young readers will enjoy every thrilling moment, as R.L. STINE presents his newest book, Young Scrooge: A Very Scary Christmas Story.

Rick Scroogeman hates Christmas. He can’t stand the carols and the pageants. He can’t stand the lights and the mistletoe. But what he hates the most is having to watch the old movie A Christmas Carol every year at school. Since his name is Scroogeman, all of his classmates start calling him Scrooge. And he hates being called Scrooge.

But everything starts to change when three ghosts visit him. At first, he thinks it’s a dream. But then he realizes that it might be a nightmare. A nightmare that could become real.
