Join Fanged Fiction, Schuler’s horror reading group, for a special Skype event with bestselling British author M.R. Carey. Some also know him as Mike Carey, writer for DC and Marvel, including acclaimed runs on Ultimate Fantastic Four and X-Men, and with Peter Gross, Lucifer and The Unwritten. His novel The Girl With All the Gifts (now a major film) was a run-away hit, and now he follows up with The Boy on the Bridge, a terrifying new novel set in the same post-apocalyptic world. We’ll have signed copies available for purchase!
