Phoebe Darqueling to Give Talks at Hallowondrous in Toledo OH Oct 14-15

The Journal's "roving reporter" will be making her next appearance at OddMall's first Halloween craft fair.

After giving my “30 Years of Steampunk” talk at the International Steampunk Symposium, the fine folks behind OddMall approached me about making another appearance. This will be the first Halloween edition of an event described as “not your grandma’s craft fair. I am thrilled to be a part of it!

In addition to the exhibit and its accompanying lecture, I’ll be giving another talk on the things Victorians found frightening. This is a twist on the “Make it Supernatural” talk I’ve given before. I will focus more on the urban legends of Victorian London such as the “Great Garroting Scare.” Jack the Ripper brought the idea of a serial killer into the popular imagination for the first time. And at a time when your reputation meant everything, a doppelganger could spell ruin.

So, come on out to the Seagate Convention Center in Toledo Oct 14-15 to see my talks!
