Scream great Tom Savini—one of the terror talents most associated with the long history of FANGORIA—has joined the growing list of horror celebrities who have come onboard the FANGORIA: COVER TO COVER Book Signing at New York City’s Forbidden Planet (832 Broadway near Union Square;  473-1576). The event will take place on Thursday, April 2nd from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
“Tom Savini has been a presence in the pages of FANGORIA, and in the hearts of horror fans, since the first issue of the magazine,” says former Fango editor Tony Timpone, who edited FANGORIA: COVER TO COVER. “It will be an honor to welcome Savini at our first-ever book store signing on the East Coast. We are thrilled that Tom will be sitting with us and meeting with Fango’s faithful followers.”
Appearing with Savini will be genre all-stars such as: legendary FAMOUS MONSTERS cover artist Basil Gogos; Larry Fessenden (director of THE LAST WINTER, HABIT, WENDIGO); Debbie Rochon (actress, Rondo-nominated Fango columnist and former host of Sirius’ much-missed FANGORIA RADIO); and screenwriter and playwright Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (CARRIE and THE TOWN THAT DREADED SUNDOWN, SPIDER-MAN: TURN OFF THE DARK and upcoming AMERICAN PSYCHO on Broadway). In addition, staffers Timpone, Thomas DeFeo, Michael Gingold, W.R. Mohalley and Ken Hanley will be on hand to autograph. Copies of FANGORIA: COVER TO COVER book will be available for purchase and signing by all of our guests, and all signatures will be free of charge, like it should be!
More special guests will be added, so keep checking back. Please come on out and help FANGORIA celebrate its amazing 35-year-old run on April 2nd in NYC at Forbidden Planet, located in the bloody heart of Union Square.
