Geek Mountain State Presents Vermont Tales of Science-Horror!


Geek Mountain State is proud to present Vermont Tales of Science-Horror! This latest installment of the Vermont SF Writer’s Series will take place on April 25th at 2:00pm at the Fletcher Free Library. Authors included in this event are Brandon Barrows, Kristin Dearborn, Patrick Dodge and M. LaRose!

This event follows a very successful year in which hundreds of listeners listened to dozens of Vermont storytellers in places such as Quarterstaff Games, Phoenix Books, The Fletcher Free Library, the Burlington Writer’s Workshop and the Center for Cartoon Studies.

Here’s our roster of authors who will be reading:

Brandon Barrows lives in the shadow-haunted hills of Vermont with his wife and a pair of elder spawn cats, writing comic books, prose and poetry. His detective comic series JACK HAMMER is published by Action Lab Comics and his sci-fi series VOYAGA is published by AAM/Markosia. His prose and poetry have appeared in the book anthologies Whispers from the Abyss from 01 Publishing and Another 100 Horrors from Cruentus Libri Press as well as magazines such as Sorcerous/Mystic Signals, Fiction365, Scifikuest, FrostFire Worls, Linguistic Erosion, Daily Love and others.

If it screams, squelches, or bleeds, Kristin Dearborn has probably written about it. She revels in comments like “But you look so normal…how do you come up with that stuff?” A life-long New Englander, she aspires to the footsteps of the local masters, Messrs. King and Lovecraft. When not writing or rotting her brain with cheesy horror flicks (preferably creature features!) she can be found scaling rock cliffs or zipping around Vermont on a motorcycle, or gallivanting around the globe. Her first novel, Trinity, was released in 2012. A novella, “Sacrifice Island” was released in October 2013. For more information please visit

Patrick Dodge is a digital marketer and storyteller who has self published many short stories online. He resides in Fairfax with his beautiful wife and daughter, where, like all Vermonters, they live in constant fear of seasonably warm temperatures and sunshine. You can see more of his work at

M. LaRose holds a BA in Psychology from the University of Vermont. The Flower Eater is her first novel. Kirkus Reviews called The Flower Eater a “magnificent debut” and a “delightfully entertaining story”.
