Dijlelanddag

Dijlelanddag

EN: Do you want to come and hear me tell a spooky children's tale about a cat that protects a child against a malicious ghost? I have written a new short story (in Dutch) exclusively for Dijlelanddag and on May 29 at 2.30 p.m. and 3.30 p.m. I will tell this story in the chapel of the Jan van Ruusbroecpark in Hoeilaart, Belgium. My cat Avalon (known from the cartoon series) will also be present. Be sure to come along, because Dijlelanddag also offers concerts, circus performances, guided walks and lots of tasty dishes.

Update: Just did an interview with Radio 2 Vlaams-Brabant on my books, my cat cartoons and the ghost story I will tell at Dijlelanddag. It will be broadcoasted May 17 between 12 and 1 p.m.

NL: Speciaal voor Dijlelanddag schreef ik een nieuw kortverhaal voor kinderen. "Angst voor spoken" gaat over een kat die een jong meisje beschermt tegen een kwaadaardig spook. Op zaterdag 29 mei, om 14u30 et 15u30 respectievelijk, kan je in de kapel van het Jan van Ruusbroecpark in Hoeilaart komen luisteren naar dit spooky sprookje. Mijn kat Avalon (gekend van de gelijknamige stripreeks) zal ook van de partij zijn. Kom zeker langs, want naast de vertelling van mijn eigen sprookje kan je op Dijlelanddag ook terecht voor muzikale optredens, circusartiesten, geleide wandelingen en vooral heel veel lekkere streekgerechten.

Update: Op 17 mei, tussen 12u en 13u, kan je op Radio 2 Vlaams-Brabant luisteren naar een interview met mij over mijn griezelverhalen, mijn kattenstrip en het spookverhaal dat ik tijdens de Dijlelanddag zal vertellen.

  25. The Fatman's FateMay 16, 2011 at 8:29 PM

    Soul, known as “The Drifter”, is looking for his childhood friend, Horace, called “The Fatman”; he lost sight of him when he was sent to war in Iraq. He wants to find him back, because it was his only friend ever… or isn’t it rather because the Fatman owes him a few bucks? Anyway. One day, he shows up at the door of a Bureau for Private Investigations. Another man is on the Fatman’s track, a police inspector called Bob Bludgeon. He is investigating on the Fatman who could possibly be the cause of the disappearance of a hundred prostitutes in town in the last four years. It looks like one of the worst cases of serial killing worldwide. In the office of the Bureau for Private Investigations, is sitting Jocelyn, a young woman lost in a past romance, perceiving reality in a pretty distorted way, collecting pictures of nuclear explosions and looking at them with a childish fascination. Dark secrets link all these characters together. Secrets that will be revealed on the edge of a precipice.
