Presented by Josef Matulich

Reading from Steampunk misadventure The Silk Empress.

Join author Josef Matulich for a reading from his Steampunk misadventure The Silk Empress, the story of “Pig” the world’s worst boy adventurer aboard the airship Wu Zetian along the High Silk Road from China to Europe.

Josef Matulich is a writer, artist, and retired mime. His written works include four horror/comedy novels, several short plays and flash fiction, and one poor screenplay perhaps trapped forever in Development Hell. He has built monsters for movies, slit throats on video, and provided magick amulets on the spot. His jobs have ranged from ditchdigging and setting explosives to operating a mass spectrometer in an EPA lab, not to mention several dozen children’s parties Josef lives with his lovely wife Kit in a deer-infested suburb of Columbus Ohio. Together, they also own a semi-haunted vintage and costume shop.
