BOOK NOTES: Authors S. Clayton Rhodes and Michael Knost to appear at Drug Emporium this weekend

By David M. Kinchen
Barboursville, WV (Special to HNN)  — Event planners at Drug Emporium will host a special book event featuring two nationally recognized writers, S. Clayton Rhodes and Michael Knost, this Saturday, Oct. 19 from 1:00 - 4:00 p.m.


S. Clayton "Shelby" Rhodes will appear at the store to greet the public and autograph copies of his new volume, The Wiz of the West— a charming and humorous alternate take on the classic Wizard of Oz story for the young and young-at-heart.

“You know the story and the movie,” Rhodes said, "but has anyone ever stopped to wonder what might have happened if that Kansas twister had brought Dorothy not to Oz, but to the Old West?” Rhodes also has stories published in several anthologies which will be available for him to sign, as well.


Joining him will be Bram Stoker award-winning author Michael Knost, who will be signing copies of The Mothman Files, Legends of the Mountain State (volumes 1—4), Writers Workshop of Horror, Dark Tales of Terror, Appalachian Winter Hauntings, and other titles.
