Cancellation Announcement: Horrorfind Weekend

It is with deepest regrets that, due to a situation beyond his control, Michael West will be unable to attend this year’s Horrorfind Weekend in Gettysburg, PA on August 31-September 2.   Mr. West had been looking forward to this event all year, and is most upset that he will not be able to meet with his friends and faithful readers.   In his entire career, Mr. West has  never missed an appearance before,  and he looks forward to making this unfortunate cancellation up to everyone as soon as possible.

He thanks you all for your understanding and hopes that everyone who attends Horrorfind will have a wonderful weekend!
