Blogging for Horror

One of the courses I’m enrolled in this semester is being taught by Master Blogger Michael Bérubé.

Oh hey there Wizards, Goblins, and Damsels Even though I am a lifelong lover of all things con-worthy, I am very new to the whole “fest” and “con” thing. Till now I’ve elected to geek out in the privacy of my own home. Hard to say why really given I live for this stuff. Part of it is that for some bizarre reason …
