A new kind of horror con.
This could happen
The blending of a horror con with a slasher movie.
Joe breaths life into Adam Ceasar's words.
Keith Lumbra who gets caught up in something he never wanted to be a part of
Keith Lumbra is a filmmaker, if you can call titles like Teenage Cumsluts in Torturland film. He's on his way back from a horror con where he was selling his wares when he gets pulled over by the cops, or at least he thinks they're cops.
Rory and Teeks are putting together a completely new form of con. Where, instead of having fans line up to get their pictures taken with their favorite horror actors, a limited number of fans, who pay top dollar, would get to interact with a select group of B through D list celebrities at a camp where a slasher is taking them out one by one.
On the surface, it sounds like a really cool idea, but believe me, the talent has no idea what they're in for.
It was tough writing that synopsis without dropping spoilers left and right. I've probably said to much as it is.
The writing in The Con Season is crisp and the pacing is excellent. There was a brief disconnect for me between the story's opening and where things come together with the setting up of this new interactive, high-end, horror con, but in the end Adam Cesare delivers a uniquely original tale.

Fan Con with a Deadly Twist
This book is pure fun. From the characters themselves, to the setting (fan cons), to the plot as a whole, this story is survival horror at it's best (with a solid dash of silliness to even it all out). I was at times surprised and always interested to hear what came next. Hempel does a tremendous job, as always, and Cesare is masterful.
