With Good Intentions – The Play!

Posted by Nicky Drayden on Feb 20, 2010 in Announcements |

My short story “With Good Intentions” (first published in Necrotic Tissue) will be one of four stories to be anthologized and adapted into a play by internationally award winning playwright Roy C. Booth.

From Roy’s Blog:

Stygian Publications will be publishing a collection/anthology of four previously published horror/comedy short stories from their flagship publication, NECROTIC TISSUE, all to be adapted into play script form by yours truly.

Adapted works will include riveting tales by poet/novelist Steve Barber of Ann Arbor, MI; short story writer Eric R. Lowther of “Northeastern Ohio;” writer Nicky Drayden of Austin, TX; and a piece by Justin Pilon, a Canadian ESL teacher in Tainan City, Taiwan, and, as always, various media productions for certain scripts are already under discussion. Scripts will run in size from 10-Minute to possibly Full Length.

No set release date, but we’re shooting for the book launching to take place at either Convergence, Diversicon, or Arcana, where we also plan to do a short production of one of the plays in question. The plays will then be immediately available for royalty performance as well.

Pretty exciting! Congrats to my anthology mates as well.

Hi there Nicky! We’re going to be anthology/play buddies it looks like. Nice to meet you. Which issue of NT was your story in?

Hi Justin. I was in issue 7. What about you? I enjoyed stopping by your blog. Hopefully this won’t be the last time our paths cross! Good luck with your writing.

LOL. Here I was combing all the back issues trying to find the other 3 writers and you were in the same issue as me, ha! I really liked “Good Intentions”. Short and sweet with a great last line. I worked a coding job for a while and can see where you’re coming from.

I’m on Facebook, too, if you’re on there. I mostly do the LJ thing though.
