This great profile piece just came out in the East Bay Express, by Stefanie Kalem, describing my public evolution from "Will the Thrill" to "Will the Quill," and furthering my agenda to re-introduce myself to the people who know me only as "the Parkway Guy."
This is exactly the kind of press I need, following hot on the heels of this San Francisco Bay Guardian article/interview about my pulp fiction. Hopefully, much more media exposure is in the cards.
The Express piece also plugs my Forbidden Thrills movie nites at Forbidden Island Tiki Lounge in Alameda. Next up, Monday December 19, 7:30: I'm throwing a "Feliz Navidad Fiesta" featuring those festive Mexican B classics The Brainiac (AKA The Baron of Terror, 1962) and Curse of the Aztec Mummy (1957). Salud!
|Me with comic book legend Steve Englehart|
Speaking of Forbidden Thrills at Forbidden Island, one of my childhood heroes, famous Marvel/DC comic book scribe Steve Englehart swung by my recent screenings of Attack of the Crab Monsters and The Flesh Eaters, and I had him sign some copies of "Captain America and The Falcon" I've been holding onto since 1973! It was quite an unexpected honor. He's a very nice, humble guy and it really made my night. My year, in fact.
