Robert Waugh reads from The Bloody Tugboat and Other Witcheries

When: Sun., Oct. 4, 4-5:30 p.m. 2015

“A leading critic & scholar of weird/fantasy/science fiction, [Waugh] has demonstrated skill as a fictionist of luminous prose and powerful supernatural concepts … particularly adept at evoking the terror inherent in towns weighted down by centuries of tradition … evoking the strangeness of the upstate NY town of New Paltz, where [he’s] long resided … we find a sensitivity to fine shades of human emotion, a deftness in introducing the supernatural into mundane setting[s], and a supple, richly-textured prose … a literary craftsman of the highest order… Waugh never forgets that weirdness lies at the heart of the weird tale.“
