“Well, if I could discover just one of these things, what eternity is, for example, I wouldn’t care if they did think I was crazy.” -Henry Frankenstein (Frankenstein-1931)
It’s the quest of every ultra-fan: finding fellow obsessives to share in the collective joy.
Fan conventions provide a meeting place and an outlet for like-minded folk. What’s it like to really find your tribe?
This episode is a companion piece to Episode 4, “Blood Oaths and Bar Tabs: Horror Conventions and Cinema Wasteland”
I traveled to Strongsville, Ohio to Cinema Wasteland and in this episode we interview Jon Kitley, a lifetime lover of horror in both books and film.
He is also a proud member of “the Algonquin Round Table of Horror.”
He truly has an encyclopedic knowledge of horror from the 1930’s to the present, and you’ll get to hear his depth and breadth in this discussion.
He maintains his own website, Kitley’s Krypt (www.kitleyskrypt.com).
He’s also a regular columnist for HorrorHound Magazine and writes for Evilspeak Magazine.
