Many thanks to Edward Morris Jr, Jay Lake, and 23rd Avenue Books for their participation in the Portland, Oregon, Shriek movie showing. Edward and Jay worked their butts off.

Here are a few photos from the event.

The squid. Ed says: "As far as the Shriek party is concerned, the squid ended up being hucked at my former employer's place of business at about 3AM during the first rainy night in September by several drunken Reds and Greens, along with numerous eggs and spirit-lamps. I made Molotov cocktails for the event, but was shouted down. But half a dozen eggs did the job.
