Pictures from Anthocon 2013

by Jason Harris

The third Anthocon has come to an end. All we have left are good memories and pictures until next year’s convention. Anthocon is organized by the Four Horsemen ( Timothy Deal, Mark Wholley, ZjOhnny Morse, and Danny Evarts). It’s an excellent convention where there are panels, author readings and vendors selling everything from books, t-shirts, wooden bookmarks and even lemon curd.2013-11-08 04.41.01

‘The Proteus Cure’ has been Released

In April, The Proteus Cure by Tracy L. Carbone and F. Paul Wilson was released in paperback and on e-book from Shadowridge Press.proteus cure

“Wilson and Carbone have penned a winner. The suspense is razor sharp and the characters masterfully drawn.”

Book’s description: “In medical ethics, the line between right and wrong is often blurred. Who is to decide what is for the good of humanity? Changing the world. One person at a time … That is the mission statement of Tethys Hospital, run by Dr. Bill Gilchrist and his deformed sister, Abra. VG723, their revolutionary stem-cell-based therapy, appears to be capable of doing just that for the cancer patients who come to Tethys. VG723 is often their last hope. But if they match the protocol, they’re virtually guaranteed a cure. Dr. Sheila Takamura, a young, dedicated oncologist, is proud to be involved in the clinical trials. Once the FDA approves it for widespread use, VG723 will revolutionize cancer therapy. That is why she’s alarmed when former patients return with bizarre syndromes. Yes, they’re cancer free, but they’re experiencing dramatic changes in their hair and skin and general appearance. When she investigates a possible link to the protocol, those patients start dying. As the body count grows, Sheila finds her own life in danger. She comes to suspect there might be a literal meaning behind the Tethys motto – but can she learn the truth in time to save herself and millions of others?”

Carbone, who was a former co-chair of the New England Horror Writers before stepping down at the beginning of this year, has had a number of short stories published in different anthologies. She has also had a few books published including The Soul Collector and Restitution. For more information on the author, check out her website.

Wilson, who is a New York Times bestselling author, has written more than forty books including science fiction, horror thrillers, and contemporary thrillers. Some of his titles are The Tomb, Legacies, The Keep, and An Enemy of the State. For more information on the author, check out his website.
