Michael Knost, Author of Return of the Mothman
Saturday October 18 ~ 1:00 – 3:00pm
Michael Knost has written several books and dozens of short stories, edited a number of anthologies, including the Legends of the Mountain State series, and he currently writes a column for Shroud Magazine. He recently won the Bram Stocker Award in the United Kingdom for his book Writers Workshop of Horror, a collection of articles and interviews on the craft of writing. His most recent book, “Return of the Mothman” will be the subject of his discussion at the Clarksburg Harrison Public Library.
“Although the book is a horror/thriller, the story also has a number of tender and touching scenes, with rich, realistic characters with personalities, actions and language that are identifiable with the Appalachian region and our culture”, Knost said. “And, at the same time, the main character is ready to deliver a full dose of red-eyed-fright and winged-terror during his sudden return to West Virginia,” he added.
Michael Knost’s reviews have included comments such as “You will not be disappointed”, “It is a collection of short stories that will tug at your heart string, send chills up your spine, and evoke emotions you didn’t know you had”, and “these stories will grab a hold of you and keep you entranced until you are finished.”
