Halloween is coming, and I have a couple of events that month. First on Saturday October 11 as part of the Dearly Departed Annual Weekend, I’m going to be at El Cid on Sunset Boulevard, talking about their history – and scary stories – and also about some shockers from my book. Tickets are available from Dearly Departed Tours.

Much closer to Halloween itself – and exclusively for you flyers out there – on Thursday October 30th I’m going to be at Just Plane News in Terminal B at Burbank Airport, doing a signing of what I think is the ideal All Saint’s Eve gift! Hope to see you at either of them!

Keep up-to-date with news, “Daily Deaths,” other articles and everything else on our Facebook page and on Twitter @GourmetGhosts but also check out the “Extra! Extra!” section here; it has lots of extra stories I found, but just couldn’t include in the book….

Gourmet Ghosts – Los Angeles is available at many L.A. book/gift stores, at Dearly Deaprted Tours, onboard The Queen Mary and at the Scorpion Submarine in Long Beach, in San Diego and San Francisco, and at Compass Books at SFO (San Francisco Airport, Terminal 2 – see “Where To Buy” for a full list). It’s also available online and for e-readers at Amazon, iTunes, Nook, Tower, Sears and AOL Shopping, and it’s on the shelf at the Central Library in downtown Los Angeles (www.lapl.org/branches/central-library) and if you want to know what it’s like before you buy or loan, there’s a sample 20 pages at www.barnesandnoble.com/sample/read/9780984973019
