Manuscripts Burn


"Manuscripts don't burn"
- Mikhail Bulgakov

Hi, I'm horror and science fiction author Steve Kozeniewski (pronounced: "causin' ooze key.") Welcome to my blog! You can also find me on Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, and Amazon. You can e-mail me here, join my mailing list here, or request an e-autograph here. Free on this site you can listen to me recite one of my own short works, "The Thing Under the Bed."

2015 Appearances

***My 2016 appearances will be posted March 2.***

CPACC's right around the corner and that can mean only one thing: convention season is kicking off!  I thought this year, for my benefit and yours, I'd start listing all of my public appearances.  Make sure to check back to this page often (I'll be adding it as a tab to the main page) for updates.

If you'd like me to make an appearance at a convention or other event you're organizing or attending, feel free to contact me and we'll discuss it.  Most events in Baltimore or Philadelphia are a slam dunk for me to attend, but I'll consider travelling if invited.

  1. Looks like you're going to be a busy bee this year! Which is awesome. I'd love to go to a big convention someday.

    1. They're definitely an experience. Get ready for a steady stream of weirdos. You'll meet weirdos like you've never dreamed before. But also sweet, sweet people who will chat you up and buy all your books and be your biggest fans. It's kind of a double-edged sword.
