Rick and Jeff were fantastic! Rick read the most perfect story he could for KGB called "Venues," coming out soon in F&SF--afterward, Dan the bartender told me he and everyone else in the back cracked up--funny story.

Jeff's was a gorgeously told period piece called "Polka Dots and Moonbeams" that will be coming out in the anthology Stories.

The audience with huge and enthusiastic and the readers wonderful. Here are the photos from the Michael Shea and N.K. Jemisin Fantastic Fiction reading

This is cribbed from Matt Kressel's blog:


As those who attend Fantastic Fiction know, Mobile Libris, an independent bookseller, sells the readers’ books at every event. (They are the quiet folks on the stools by the back of the bar). Because of financial reasons, they can no longer afford to send an employee to KGB Fantastic Fiction. So we are looking for a volunteer to sell books for them. In their words:

“If you’d like to continue having books sold at your series, the procedure will be the same but for one thing: starting in September, we’re asking each organizer to find a volunteer to sell books at the event. Your volunteer will come to Mobile Libris’ office on 6th and 28th in Manhattan and be trained like a regular bookseller (obviously it would be optimal to have one person who could commit to be at each meeting of your series); s/he will pick up books and drop them off at our office just as our booksellers do; and as an incentive, s/he will be able to purchase any book available to us, anytime, at a 40% discount.”

Does this sound like something you’d want to do? You’d be providing a valuable service to the spec fic community and you might even get to meet some cool people too.

Interested persons please email: info (at) kgbfantasticfiction (dot) org

Please feel free to forward.

Here are last night's photos from KGB--James Morrow and Laird Barron read to a full house.

KGB Fantastic Fiction reading for February

And to remind everyone--the Shirley Jackson award fund raising raffle will wind up Monday at midnight. One of the items is a signed copy of Laird's first collection, THE IMAGO SEQUENCE plus the mss of a new novelette--from which Laird read last night--it sounds terrific! Laird plans to publish it first in a second collection (unless we editors can pry it loose for ourselves first)--so you'd be getting first look!
