john_beattie_eugene_rochas_seance

Join me this Saturday, April 22, with hosts Lynne M. Nickerson and Willy Hassel on their show Spirit Radio – the Paranormal Experience to discuss Fairies, Pookas and Changelings and all manner of things that creep about the fairy kingdom. You may recall I was on this show a few months back and we found we’d only scratched the surface of what fun and wild things we could share.

This Saturday night 9:00 – 10:00 PM E.T., (8 p.m. CST/6 p.m. PST and Sunday 2:00 – 3:00 AM G.M.T.)  on WSCA 106.1 FM Portsmouth, NH Listen live worldwide at www.wscafm.org

Oddsalon: Learn Something Weird! And a Secret About Me

goblin shark oneIf you have not yet heard of OddSalon, you should click the link  immediately after reading what I have to say. There is a secret announcement hinted at but not really announced at the bottom of this post.

Oddsalon is a new parlor-style forum that hosts twice monthly salons about weird things, or perhaps better stated, a weirder view of the ordinary including lost history, secrets, crimes, hoaxes, tricks, enlightenment, disasters, and so much more.The shared brain-child of three gal pals who are contributors to Atlas Obscura, Death Salon, and The Order of the Good Death, they cull creative ideas, topics, and people from around the SF Bay Area for a truly entertaining and enlightening evening.

Oddsalon: Fake! Tues., Mar. 25th, 2014

This one includes a wide variance of interpretaions of the word “fake” including the topic of mermaids–real, hoaxes, or a little of both? The speaker has (with my permission) used my book Among the Mermaids as major source material. And she’s terribly entertaining. And if you go, and stick it out, you just might learn something fake about me.

Think you know the secret? Attend the OddSalon and then reply to this post with the answer to this question: What was the last slide of the night? If you are right, you’ll win a signed copy of my mermaid book (or another book I wrote if you prefer).

The event is in San Francisco at the DNA Lounge.

A Magical Buffet of Me: Creature Feature Review

I just found out that the amazing Magical Buffet did a late-night, double-creature-feature review of both my books, Among the Mermaids and Banshees, Werewolves, Vampires and Other Creatures of the Night. It’s a super sweet review and you can read it here:

21st Century Radio Banshee Bash Tonight!

Now that we’ve all (hopefully) recovered from Halloween and Dia de los Muertos celebrations, we can relax with a nice cuppa (whiskey!) and get cozy with some of those creatures we are all “pretty” sure we saw these last couple of dark-of-the-nights. Tune in tonight, November 3rd, from 8-9 PM EST (that’s 5pm West Coasters!) for a celebration of all things strange with the one and only Dr. Bob Hieronimus on 21st Century Radio.
