Return of the Living Dead Appearance Tonight!

Sunday, October 27th, 2019

Hi, Return of the Living Dead fans!
There is going to be a special screening tonight of the movie, followed by a Q & A with Yours Truly, Beverly (Tina) Randolph, Allan (Tarman) Trautman and make-up maestro Kenny Myers.

This is going to be an only-in-Hollywood experience, part of the Rooftop Cinema Club series. Yes, we’re going to watch our little zombie film under the stars at 6121 Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood on the third floor rooftop (3rd floor access off of El Centro). Doors open at 6:30 PM; the film screens at 8:00 PM. There will be cocktails and food being served as well.

Here’s the website for ticketing and other information:

See you there! Happy Halloween! More Brains!

Where The Heck Has Bill Been?

Friday, October 25th, 2019

Long time no blog!

The reason is, I’ve been traveling, promoting my book Fantastic Worlds all across the USA and the world…well, part of the world (Australia). I guested at about twenty shows and conventions this year in promotion of my book. Since most conventions are in the summer/early autumn, I was doing a lot of them back-to-back recently.

I recently appeared in Tampa, Florida; Atlanta, Georgia; Salt Lake City, Utah; Austin, Texas; Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Cairns, Australia; and Baltimore, Maryland (this last weekend).

I spent three weeks in Australia. Besides the cities mentioned, I also journeyed to the Daintree Rain Forest (near Cairns), the Blue Mountains (to visit the home/museum of artist Norman Lindsay), Lamington National Park and Phillip Island, where I saw the fairy penguins emerge from the sea and head for their land burrows. I attended the annual Society of Vertebrate Paleontology meeting, which was in Brisbane this year and I delivered Ron Cobb‘s Lifetime Achievement Award for Concept Design to his family in Sydney.

So, lots of travel and adventures (I did a twelve mile hike through the rain forest in Lamington National Park and earlier watched as a twelve-feet carpet python slowly crossed the road in front of my car).

I shall resume my Untold Tales of Hollywood stories shortly; my body is still adjusting to all of the time changes this past month.
