2:30PM - SPOOKINESS, 100W AT A TIME  with Crap Mariner
If we've said it once, we've said it whole bunches of times, and we REALLY mean it!  Long ago, he swore an oath to write a 100 word story every day until the day he died. He's not dead yet.Always unpredictable and irreverent, no subject is too sacred, no cow too holy for Crap not to pull it out, examine it, and bang it on the table a few times before putting it back where he found it - albeit slightly crumpled.  He's a man with a mission!  

3:00PM - ORIGINAL SPOOKY STORIES with Fred Frostbite
Freda (aka Stephanie Mesler) will be performing, THIS ONES FOR THE GIPPER  a new spooky story and A DIVA SCORNED which premiered at the very first BooFest.  Maybe a Halloween poem or two if there is time.Check out her fresh new website at

4:00PM - HER OWN WORDS with Caledonia Skytower
Caledonia (aka Author Judith Cullen) presents her own words, but actually, that is the title of her most recent short story as well.  Have you ever been haunted by your own words after the fact?  What if you were haunted by them, literally?  HER OWN WORDS was written as a haunting tale for several online ghost story contests this month, one of which is reader voted!  Click Here for more about that and to visit her site.

4:30PM - THE TELL TALE HEART with Caledonia Skytower & MadameThespian Underhill
We wrap up our day of spookable story-ness with a classic from the Master of Macabre himself!  For what would October be without something from Edgar Allan Poe?  These ladies add an unsettling twist to the tale, whose original narrative voice is a man - are they mad?  You be the judge.
