Flashback Weekend returns August 5-7 in Rosemont, IL. Of course, I will be "On the Beat" there, but a few weeks ago I got a head start by interviewing James Azrael. That interview is at On the Beat With James Azrael.
James has a lot of projects and he discusses all of them in our interview. As usual, James will have a booth at Flashback Weekend. I tried to get him to get some of his Spooky Swirls cookies there, but the logistics make it too hard. Hopefully, some day, those tasty cookies will be found in the Chicago area.
James isn't just about cookies though. He is deeply involved in the horror industry. The Horror and Sci_Fi Prop Preservation Association (HSPPA) does amazing work.
I highly encourage everyone to attend Flashback Weekend and make sure to check out James at his booth. You never know what cool stuff he will have. Also, James is just a great guy. You'll have a lot of fun and learn interesting things about horror just by talking to him.
