BOOFest Day #1 - Saturday

At the Grand Circle 

Noon - Christina Rosetti's Goblin Market 
~ with Dubhna Rhiadra, Caledonia Skytower, and Shandon Loring 
Goblin Market (composed in April 1859 and published in 1862) is a poem with overtly sexual overtones which explores temptation, through the experiences of two sisters with elusive and supernatural Goblin men.

12:30pm - The Cat-Dogs  
 by Susan Price ~ with Shandon Loring 
 They're not exactly dogs. They're not really cats. They have teeth like a dog's and claws like a cat's. They're the perfect combination of two of our best-loved pets. There's only one problem: Cat-Dogs love to hunt. Humans.

 1:30pm - The Red-Haired Ghost 
~ with Aoife Lorefield and Derry McMahon 
 The Red-Haired Ghost is from A Book of Ghosts by S. Baring-Gould. Isn't it interesting how red-heads can be troublemakers even from beyond the grave.  Subtitled "A Wife's Story" and presented in voice by two gifted storytellers.


2:00pm - The Oval Portrait & Shadow 
by E.A.Poe along with selected poems ~ with Corwyn Allen 
The Oval Portrait is one of Poe's shortest short stories, concerning disturbing circumstances around a portrait hanging in a chateau. Shadow is a parable written by Poe which beings ominously by quoting the Psalm of David: Yea, though I walk through the valley of the Shadow of Death.

2:30pm - Spooooky 100 Word Stories 
with Crap Mariner 
Irascible, irrepressable, and always unexpected . . . Crap Mariner brings his unique views on the world around him into elegant brevity, with stunning results.  If he can make peanut butter seem twisted, imagine what he can do if he really TRIES to be spooky!

3:00pm - The Mournful Cry of Owls  
by Christopher Golden ~ with Lilia Quinnell
Christopher Golden's The Mournful Cry of Owls tells the strange tale of a mother who, on her daughter's birthday, must explain the strange truth of the girl's ancestry.
