Brian C. Baer is offering fans three death-related stories collected in a chapbook for free at Lilac City Comicon 2019. All you need to do is stop by the Penguinate table (A1) to pick one up on Saturday June 1 or Sunday June 2 during the convention.
If you’ve ever wondered what happened to people abducted by aliens and never returned to Earth, “I Haunt the Spaceship” explores one possibility. Baer deftly draws his characters through the eyes of the abductee.
Baer’s second story, “Tropical Depression,” takes on a rich girl sent to a psychiatric facility to learn how to be normal, or at lest be hidden away from her parent’s society friends and their embarrassment. The story leaves you feeling like maybe not everything was as it seemed.
In “Development Hell on Earth,” the final story of the chapbook, strange things are happening on a movie set. The film has been delayed and is overbudget. A studio meeting should solve the problem.
The stories in the chapbook bring to mind “Beetlejuice,” Harry Houdini and that “ALIENS!” meme guy from the History Channel. For a little light-hearted reading that has more depth than it may first appear. Come to the Penguinate table (A1) at Lilac City Comicon 2019 and get your free copy. While supplies last.
