On March 29, 2008, for your late-night cocktailing pleasure… DARK ARTS BOOKS hosted the first (and quite possibly the last) Annual Stay Up Late Pajama Party at the World Horror Convention in Salt Lake City!!!
The party was a phenomenal success and lasted most of the night, but we closed the doors around 4:30 a.m. so the room could be clean by 6 a.m.!
Special thanks to our bartenders Martel Sardina, Dark Arts co-publisher Bill Breedlove and Whitney Lakin, who kept everybody in their cups.
The party lasted most of the night, but we closed the doors around 4:30 a.m. so the room could be clean by 6 a.m.! Below are some of the pictures we took from the evening, which celebrated the debut of the Dark Arts anthologies Sins of the Sirens and Like a Chinese Tattoo. We can’t tag every photo in the collection (OK, we could, but I’m not going to!), but the first row spotlights our bartenders Martel Sardina, Dark Arts co-publisher Bill Breedlove and Whitney Lakin, with Dark Arts author Adam Pepper. Dark Arts co-publisher John Everson roamed the party with silk robe and camera, (and consequently turns up in way too many photos!)
Also in attendance were Dark Arts authors Loren Rhoads, Maria Alexander and Cullen Bunn. Scores of people turned up for the bash, which started right after the Bram Stoker Awards, including some of these pictured below: Mort Castle, Larry Roberts, Edward Bryant, Alexandra Sokoloff, Sarah Langan, Gerard Houarner, Linda Addison, Bailey Hunter, Eunice Magill, Cody Goodfellow, Jimmy Z, Jeremy Lassen, Alan Beatts, Jude Feldman, Christopher Treagus, Kelly Laymon, Wrath James White, Weston Ochse, Bill Gagliani, Dave Benton, John Palisano, Gord Rollo, Monica Kuebler, Lynne Hansen and many, many more.
