Horror Realm convention in Pittsburgh
Horror Realm™, the convention arm of Zombie Fest, strikes out on its own in 2009 as a three-day convention geared toward fans of zombies and the horror genre. We have changed our name and format to distinguish the event as a full fledged horror convention.
The convention will be held September 18-20, 2009 at the Crowne Plaza South, just 7 miles south of Pittsburgh. A special $99 discounted room rate will be available – see our web site for details.
The format change allows us to offer a greater variety of exhibitors and guests, a more extensive film festival without content restrictions and dedicated, quieter space for author panels.
First round of guest announcements includes these Dawn of the Dead alumni scheduled to appear:
- Ken Foree
- Sharon Ceccatti
- Clayton Hill
- Leonard Lies
- Frank Serrao
- Joe Shelby
- Nick Tallo
More guests are in the works and will be announced as information becomes available.
And please join us in welcoming Rue Morgue magazine as a sponsor and Library of the Living Dead as the sponsor of the writers program! Please show our sponsors love for their support.
Want to exhibit at Horror Realm? We're offering discounted table rates through 3/31. Visit the Vendors page of our web site for details.
Advance single-day, two-day and weekend passes are also available for purchase at the web site.
Please check our web site frequently for updates and guest announcements.
The annual Monroeville Mall zombie walk and World Zombie Day will still be held in October. The date will be announced soon.

Horror Realm™ is pleased to announce the following updates for its convention in Pittsburgh on September 18-20, 2009:
· Permuted Press, in addition to sponsoring the appearance of six of its authors, presents the Horror Realm 2009 Apocalyptic Flash Fiction Contest:
We love the apocalypse, and this time we want it short and sweet. Give us your vision of the end of the world--or just before, or just after, you get the drift--in 500 words or less. Entries will be judged by a crack team of Permuted Press authors with prizes awarded to the top 3 stories. Check the Horror Realm web site for details
· Bram Stoker award winning author Jonathan Maberry (Ghost Road Blues, Zombie CSU) and horror novelist/screenplay writer S.G. Browne (Breathers – A Zombie’s Lament) will appear for panel discussions and book signings courtesy of Joseph Beth Booksellers.
· Contests for fans – details coming soon at the Horror Realm website.
o Best Horror Tattoo
o Best Horror Costume
o Horror Trivia hosted by Tim Gross of Bastards of Horror
o Jello brain eating contest
o Art contest – taking a cue from the Vader Project, amateur artists can express their creativity using the iconic horror hockey mask as a medium.
