SL ARTS & LITERATURE: Bookstacks Hosts 4th Annual Horror Fest

In late 2008, Bookstacks partnered with The Guild of UK Writers to better offer events to both the readers and writers of Second Life, and from that beginning Horror Fest was born.  Four years later, a small miracle in virtual terms, the event endures and Bookstacks has proudly announced Horror Fest 4: Better Undead than Unread scheduled for this Saturday, March 26 from 8 am - 10 pm SLT (Pacific Time)

Bookstacks in Second Life is “a place for bookish people to meet other bookish people and get together and do bookish things.” Originally founded by Simeon Beresford in the spring of 2007, Kghia Gherardi was recruited shortly thereafter to help with events. Bookstacks has 600+ members, and is a collaborative effort. Bookstacks is noted for their generous support of both lovers and creators of literature.  They host a range of events from discussions, open mic readings, workshops, and some wickedly fun parties.

This years Horror Fest, while scaled back from previous years, contains some notable RL authors as well as presenters of literature from across the Grid.
