2017 Appearances

Please note that some of the events I’ll be appearing at charge an admission fee (those marked with a “$”), while others are not open to the general public (marked “private event”).  If they are not marked, the event’s free and open to all. Still, you might want to check with the venue since some of them require you to pre-register just so they don’t overbook the event, which tends to annoy the local Safety Chief!


For most events, I will have copies of all my books available for purchase. If you already own my books, you’re more than welcome to bring them along for me to sign!

If you’re interested in having me lecture/speak/dance at one of your upcoming events, please feel free to contact me at jim@strangeandspooky.com.

Need a copy of my bio/press release to help you decide if you want to hire me? Download a copy right here! Or maybe you’re just curious to see where I’ve given presentations in the past. If so, feast your eyes on this list!
