- Necroscope the movie. http://www.necroscopethemovie.com The third option has been made. Work continues to go on. Peter Atkins, who Brian knows, has written the only script Brian has liked so far and at least that is looking good at the moment. They took the option on the proviso that they would be able to have access to Wamphyri and The Source as well. So until anything substantial happens … this item is relegated to last on the list, but certainly not least.
APPEARANCES (NOTE: Brian attends all his scheduled appearances provided the planes are flying and there aren’t any emergencies which would cause cancellation.)

There might be a signing session at what boasts on being “the Biggest Bookstore in the World,” but that’s still in the planning stages. Info if/when this is going to happen. But you can always keep track of what’s going on by going to the website.
NOTE: There are no other scheduled convention appearances for the foreseeable future. If anything comes out of the blue we’ll let you know.
