Blood and coffee drench the capital city

This October 17th several noted independent names in horror literature will gather in in the funky, dark confines of one of the coolest new coffee bars, Kick Butt Coffee, in Austin, Texas for an exciting afternoon of spine-tingling readings. From vampires and werewolves to demented serial killers, a cup of bloody wickedness will be provided to all who arrive.

From 2pm until 7pm, Gabrielle Faust, Steven E. Wedel, Lee Thomas, Byron Starr, Brian Moreland, Ethan Nahte, Kenneth M. Hoover and Joe McKinney will take the stage to read an assortment of work from short stories to excerpts from their published novels. All of the authors will also be on hand throughout the afternoon to sell and sign copies of their work.

In addition, SCARE for a CURE, the Austin, Texas charity haunted house event, is said to be on hand with a few willing volunteers passing out information about Blood Ritual and how you can purchase tickets or volunteer at the event.

What better way to begin your spooky Halloween experience this year? If you are simply in search of a stellar cup of joe, Kick Butt Coffee has some of the best beans in the capital city and also offers a nicely stocked full bar if a martini is more your style. Kick Butt Coffee is located at 5775 Airport Blvd. For more information call 512.454.KICK.
