August 1, 2016

On August 16, 2016, at 9:00 PM ET, I am going to be a guest on Beyond the Forest Radio Show, hosted by Sanjay R Singhal RA.   Beyond The Forest Radio show tackles the strange world of the cryptids, the shadowy animals and creatures that science does not yet understand and their many manifestations, wooly and otherwise.

Showtimes are Tuesday nights, from 8:00 PM-10:00 PM CST/9:00 PM-11:00 PM EST. You can catch the shows, both live and archived at the official Beyond the Forest Show Blog Talk Radio Page:

Sanjay R. Singhal is a licensed architect, interior designer and photographer who has travelled extensively throughout Europe studying and researching architecture and design, including in England, France, Holland, Spain and Italy with trips to Germany and Switzerland. He is a published author with five books.

His first encounter with what he calls the Elder Children (known to most people as Bigfoot) was around the time when he was seven or eight years old.  Having made friends as he grew up in South Dakota with the Lakota Sioux, he learned much from them, including culture, language and their spiritual history and lore.  His encounters with the EC pushed Sanjay to further study this magnificent citizen of the forest on his radio show. 

At the end of August, I will be a guest at the Carnival of ParaHorror in Buffalo, New York. The Carnival of ParaHorror is a three-day event, Friday August 26- Sunday August 28, 2016.  I will be giving a two-day presentation: Saturday, August 27 from 2:00 - 3:00 PM and Sunday, August 28 from 1:00 - 2:00 PM.

The location is The Buffalo Central Terminal, New York.  Tickets are available at:!tickets/cxfo   Tickets can also be purchased at the door.  There is free admission for children 10 and under.

I am going to be in very good company for this event; the well-known occult author, writer and publisher Corvis Nocturnum will be a guest; other guests include Debbie Rochon, actress, filmmaker, director and Fangoria radio host; Patsy Mullen, actress, model and star of Frankenhooker; and Eugene Clark, star of The Land of the Dead.

My presentation on Saturday is: “H. P. Lovecraft’s Cosmic Weird Tales & the Cinema.”  I will examine Lovecraft’s aesthetic and key films that are based on Lovecraft’s works: Stuart Gordon’s Dagon (2001); Daniel Haller’s The Dunwich Horror (1970); the Samuel Z. Arkoff production of Die Monster Die (1965), starring Boris Karloff, and Roger Corman’s The Haunted Palace (1963).

I will also offer a new, startling interpretation of Lovecraft’s major Great Old Ones, Azathoth, Nyarlathotep, Yog-Sothoth & Cthulhu, the extra-terrestrial entities that lie at the center of Lovecraft’s philosophy and his works.

On Sunday, my presentation will be: “H. P. Lovecraft’s Goddess Shub-Niggurath: Redefining the Horned God Archetype of the Wiccans”.  In this presentation, I am concentrating on this last of Lovecraft’s major Great Old Ones.

Shub-Niggurath represents a special type of entity, which is why I have decided to discuss this entity separately from the others. Shub-Niggurath not only redefines Wiccan archetype, but also, brings this Great Old One into closer alignment with the frightening, impersonal vastness of the cosmos as Lovecraft understood it.

I will also have a stall at the Carnival for those who wish to purchase a signed copy of my new book, H. P. Lovecraft & the Black Magickal Tradition and for those who, likewise, might want to just drop by and say hello.  I hope to see some of my Facebook and Twitter friends and colleagues who live in the New York area as well.

My interview with Micah Hanks on The Gralien Report on July 11, 2016 is now available for listening or for download.  

My interview with Gwilda Wiyaka on The Science of Magic radio show, July 14, 2016, is likewise available for listening on their Youtube channel and on their website.
