Will Viharo 

When: Fri., Oct. 11, 7 p.m. 2013
Price: free
MC Hammer aside, Will “The Thrill” Viharo might be one of the closest things we have to an East Bay cultural hero, one of those people who’s seemingly everywhere, all the time, probably with a smile on his face. He used to run a regular B-movie night at Alameda’s Forbidden Island, helps out with programming at The New Parkway, was one of the public faces of the theater’s old iteration, blogs occasionally, and, oh, has a prolific fiction-writing career on the side. Viharo — who was actually named for none other than William Shakespeare, believe it or not — has published more than twenty novels at this point, each larded with the kind of sparkling wit, eye for satire, and love of all things campy that you might expect from someone who’s devoted a professional life to unearthing such cinematic masterpieces as Dracula vs. Frankenstein. Join Viharo as he celebrates the re-release of his wry 1995 cult classic, Love Stories Are Too Violent for Me — currently in the early stages of production as a film starring Christian Slater — at Books Inc. Alameda (1344 Park St., Alameda).
