Brian_KeeneNew Year’s PartyCon is pleased to announce a new featured guest for 2017: the Bram Stoker Award winning and World Horror Grandmaster Brian Keene!

Mr. Keene’s 2003 novel, The Rising, is often credited (along with Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead comic and Danny Boyle’s 28 Days Later film) with inspiring pop culture’s current interest in zombies.

Keene’s novels have been translated into German, Spanish, Polish, Italian, French, Taiwanese, and many more.

In addition to his own original work, Keene has written for media properties such as Doctor Who, The X-Files, Hellboy, Masters of the Universe, and Superman.

Mr. Keene will join webcartoonist Brad Guigar and a list of other great authors, illustrators, and artisans yet to be announced at New Year’s PartyCon. Stay tuned for more guest and event announcements over the coming weeks.
