ShadowmenClosing out our 2014 New Fictioneer programming will be Frank Schildiner. A pulp fan since reading Philip José Farmer’s Tarzan Alive, Frank is a martial arts instructor from New Jersey. He will be reading from from his forthcoming Thunder Jim Wade novella and one of his pieces for Black Coat’s Tales of the Shadowmen on Saturday, August 9th, at 3 PM.

Frank has written Black Bat, Ravenwood, and Secret Agent X stories for Airship 27; Avenger yarns for Moonstone Books; tales of Thunder Jim Wade and Richard Knight for Pro Se Productions; and contributed regularly to Black Coat Press’s Tales of the Shadowmen series. He has also published several articles on horror in comic books, television, and film including essays on Hellboy, the Frankenstein films, Dark Shadows, and television’s Lovecraftian links.

For those attending our Saturday afternoon programming, we’ll be offering a chance to win a fabulous door prize donated to PulpFest by Radio Archives–an audio-book edition of Will Murray’s Doc Savage and King Kong adventure, Skull Island, read by Michael McConnohie.
