Over 40 people packed Extreme Pizza in San Francisco to listen to the Oct 30 NorCal Scary Story Slam and it was standing room only. We did have a few glitches with the sound system but thankfully not too bad. Alan Toth started off strong with “The Peace Corps Poster” and Tess Marstaller brought it all home at the end with “La Blanche”.
