The following came over the e-transom today. I'm posting it because 1.) in my friend Tom Inge's book on Poe, Tom thanks Mr. Grimly for loaning artwork and 2.) Grimly's book with Neil Gaiman is coming out on Thursday and was one of John Judy's recommendations from his Quick Reviews this week.

Illustrator and storyteller Gris Grimly will be having a book signing party for “Where Madness Reigns”, at Halloween Town in Burbank, CA on June 7 from 7pm – 9pm.

“Where Madness Reigns”, the first book to showcase the art of Gris Grimly, we be released as a limited edition hardcover. There will also be limited edition silk screened posters, exclusive event t-shirts and one-of-a-kind items in addition to a gallery display of prints and original art for sale, some of which has never been on display or available to the public before. Props from Gris Grimly’s film “CANNIBAL FLESH RIOT!” will be on display as well as some three dimensional sculptures.

What: Book Signing Party for “Where Madness Reigns”

Where: Halloween Town, 2921 W. Magnolia Blvd, Burbank, CA
