NY Review of SF Readings Coast Guard Special

The New York Review of Science Fiction Readings
presents
a US Coast Guard Special
Myke Cole
Robert J. Howe
plus a cameo appearance by Saladin Ahmed
     Tuesday, February 7 -- Doors open 6:30 PM
     $7 suggested donation
     The SoHo Gallery for Digital Art
     (address and links below)
It was too good to leave alone.  We'd been looking for a theme to bring Bob Howe back to read, and when we met up with Myke Cole at Readercon last year and heard of his new series that sets the Coast Guard in a fantasy universe, and knowing that Bob formerly served, the pairing was a natural for this month's reading.

In addition, Saladin Ahmed will be in town to promote his new book, and with the gracious permission of our featured readers, he will entertain us with a short segment from his debut novel. 


--
Myke Cole is the author of the military fantasy SHADOW OPS series. The first novel, Control Point, has just been published by Ace (Penguin).

As a secu­rity con­tractor, gov­ern­ment civilian and mil­i­tary officer, Myke Cole's career has run the gamut from coun­ter-t­er­rorism to cyber war­fare to fed­eral law enforce­ment. He’s done three tours in Iraq and was recalled to serve during the Deep­water Horizon oil spill. All that con­flict can wear a guy out. Thank good­ness for fan­tasy novels, comic books, late night games of Dun­geons and Dragons and lots of angst-fueled writing.

Robert J. Howe has published short fiction in Salon.com; the magazines Analog, Black Gate, Electric Velocipede, Pulphouse, and Weird Tales; the anthologiesHappily Ever After and Newer York, and elsewhere. Howe is the editor, with John Ordover, of the anthology Coney Island Wonder Stories. He is a longtime SFWA member and is just completing his second year as secretary. Howe is a graduate of the journalism program at Brooklyn College, and the Clarion Writer's Workshop at Michigan State University.

Between 1976 and 1980, Howe served in the U.S. Coast Guard aboard the Coast Guard Cutter Cape George, on the Aids to Navigation Team Woods Hole, and the Coast Guard Cutter Gallatin. He was (honorably!) discharged as a petty officer third class. He is a native of Brooklyn, New York, and now works in higher education communications.

Saladin Ahmed has been a finalist for the John W. Campbell Award and the Nebula Award for Best Short Story. His fiction has been published in book anthologies and magazines such as Strange Horizons, Orson Scott Card's InterGalactic Medicine Show, Clockwork Phoenix 2, and Beneath Ceaseless Skies. His debut novel, Throne of the Crescent Moon from DAW Books, is officially coming out the day of our event.

     The SoHo Gallery for Digital Art
     (address and links below)

We continue our tradition of an annual family reading for December with one of our favorite families of writers -- Ellen Kushner and Delia Sherman.  It's not only a truly festive way to start out the season, but you are assured of hearing great fiction by two exceptional readers .

--
Ellen Kushner’s first novel, Swordspoint, introduced readers to the city to which she has since returned in The Privilege of the Sword (Locus Award & Nebula nominee), The Fall of the Kings (written with Delia Sherman), and a handful of short stories, most recently "The Duke of Riverside" in Ellen Datlow’s Naked Cities.  She has just finished recording the audiobook of Swordspoint for Audible.com/ACX's new "Neil Gaiman Presents" list.  Her second novel, Thomas the Rhymer, won both the Mythopoeic and World Fantasy Awards.  Kushner has taught writing at the Clarion and Odyssey workshops, and is a co-founder of the Interstitial Arts Foundation.  In 2011 she co-edited Welcome to Bordertown with Holly Black.  Kushner is also the longtime host of the public radio show Sound & Spirit.  Kushner lives in New York City with author & editor  Delia Sherman, and no cats whatsoever. Her website can be found at  http://EllenKushner.com 


Delia Sherman writes stories and novels for younger readers and adults. Her most recent short stories have appeared in the young adult anthology Steampunk! and in Ellen Datlow’s Naked City. She's written three novels for adults: Through a Brazen Mirror, The Porcelain Dove, and The Fall of the Kings (with Ellen Kushner). She's now turned her hand to novels for younger readers.  Changeling and The Magic Mirror of the Mermaid Queen are both set in the magical world of New York Between. Her newest novel, The Freedom Maze, is a time-travel historical about ante-bellum Louisiana.  When she’s not writing, Sherman is teaching, editing, knitting, and cooking. When not on the road (one of her favorite places to be), she lives in a rambling apartment in New York City with partner Ellen Kushner and far too many pieces of paper. Her website is at http://DeliaSherman.com

A Tribute to Murray Leinster
(Will F. Jenkins)

with
Billee Stallings
and
David G. Hartwell
Barry N. Malzberg
Michael Swanwick
 

     Tuesday, 11/1/11  --  Doors open 6:30 PM
     $7 suggested donation
     The SoHo Gallery for Digital Art
     (address and links below)

November has been our traditional month for tributes to great writers, and we have been blessed to find remarkable people to help us celebrate their  lives and work.  This time out is no exception, with Billee Stallings, daughter of one of sf's great, great writers, leading us in a re-discovery of this master's work.

Murray Leinster (June 16, 1896 - June 8, 1975) was a nom de plume of William Fitzgerald Jenkins, writer of science fiction and alternate history. He wrote and published over 1,500 short stories and articles, 14 movie scripts, and hundreds of radio scripts and television plays.


Despite the era in which he wrote, many of his concepts continue to foreshadow today's technologies, including the premise of the Internet, personal computers, and electronic translators.  And these stories truly entertain.

Come enjoy a reading and panel discussion on "the Dean of Science Fiction" -- a person who truly helped create the field we enjoy so much, with his family and some other greats of sf.

--
Billee Stallings is the daughter of Will F. Jenkins. With her sister, Jo-an Evans, she has written a memoir about her father titled Murray Leinster: The Life and Works, published by McFarland & Co.  (Copies of the book will be available at the reading.)

She lives in Moorestown, NJ, and has two children, five grandchildren and five great grandchildren.

David G. Hartwell is a senior editor of Tor/Forge Books. His doctorate is in Comparative Medieval Literature.  He is the proprietor of Dragon Press, the publishing and bookselling company which publishes The New York Review of Science Fiction.  He is the author of Age of Wonders and the editor of many anthologies, including The Dark Descent, The World Treasury of Science Fiction, The Hard SF Renaissance, The Space Opera Renaissance, and a number of Christmas anthologies, among others.  With Kathryn Kramer, he continues to co-edit the Year's Best SF anthologies.

Barry N. Malzberg's collected essays on science fiction, Breakfast in the Ruins, was published in the Spring of 2007; the book conflates his l982 classic Engines of the Night and all of the essays published since.  His collection, In the Stone House, was published in 2000; several of his l970's science fiction novels have been reissued within the past half-decade.  He has been publishing science fiction and fantasy for over forty years.  With a fetching smile and an indescribable moue, Malzberg further notes that these last years of his seventh decade are becoming, unsurprisingly, a tortuous slog.


Michael Swanwick is one of the most acclaimed science fiction and fantasy writers of his generation. He has received Hugo Awards for short fiction an unprecedented five times in six years. His novel Stations of the Tide was honored with the Nebula Award and was also nominated for the Hugo and Arthur C. Clarke Awards. "The Edge of the World" received the Theodore Sturgeon Memorial Award and was nominated for both the Hugo and World Fantasy Awards. "Radio Waves" received the World Fantasy Award. His stories are frequently reprinted in Best of the Year anthologies and have been translated and published throughout the world. He is the author of Griffin's Egg, In the Drift, Stations of the Tide, Vacuum Flowers, The Iron Dragon's Daughter, and its sequel, The Dragons of Babel. His latest novel, Dancing With Bears, continues the adventures of the far-future confidence tricksters, Darger and Surplus.

     (address and links below)
This month we feature a close look at those fascinating blood-suckers -- vampires. (You thought we were talking about investment bankers, didn't you?) For this supernatural excursion, we bring you three experts on the subject: Margot Adler of National Public Radio, and Clay Griffith and Susan Griffith who have fashioned the steampunk Vampire Empire. 

--
Clay and Susan Griffith are a married couple who have written and published together for more than a decade.  Their most recent series, Vampire Empire, has had steampunk and vampire fans ecstatic with its genre-blending adventure.  The first book, The Greyfriar, was released by Pyr Books to critical acclaim, and we expect no less from the recently released new novel, The Rift Walker.  


Their credits include three books for Bantam Doubleday Dell in the mid-1990s, and another for Pinnacle Entertainment in 2002, along with numerous short stories published in many anthologies.  They've also written scripts for television and published graphic novels.  Visit them online at http://clayandsusangriffith.blogspot.com 

Margot Adler is probably best known for her work as a journalist and correspondent for National Public Radio. A Clarion workshop graduate, she recently became fascinated with the world and subculture of vampire fiction.  She has read (as of this writing) 184 such books over the last couple of years, and has lectured and broadcast on the topic.  (The list of her first 75 is at http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=123115545 )

Adler began her radio career at WBAI in the late Sixties. She started  her daily live radio program, Hour of the Wolf, in 1972 and followed that with the program Unstuck in Time.  She joined NPR in 1979 as a general assignment reporter covering NYC, and is a regular voice on Morning Edition and All Things Considered.  Since 9/11, she has focused much of her work on stories exploring the human factors of New York City, from the loss of loved ones, homes and jobs to work in the relief effort.  She hosted the radio show Justice Talking until the show's funding expired in 2008.   

Margot is the author of Drawing Down the Moon, considered a watershed in American NeoPagan circles, and Heretic's Heart.  Her grandfather, Alfred Adler, is the father of individual psychology.

The New York Review of Science Fiction Readings
presents
Chris Claremont
Louise Simonson
Amy Goldschlager, Guest Curator 

     Tuesday, September 13 -- Doors open 6:30 PM
     $7 suggested donation
     The SoHo Gallery for Digital Art
     (address and links below)

Autumn is approaching and our September event the start of our new season.  As happens in the comics industry, things often get different timelines, and so has it been with us.  We've enjoyed two 20th Anniversaries, but now we are inaugurating our 21st Anniversary.  

And how!  Guest curator Amy Goldschlager has brought us two uncanny giants of the comics industry, both of whom are appearing at the NYRSF Reading series as prose pros.

--

Chris Claremont has encountered more success than most writers ever dream of.  His initial unbroken 17-year run on Marvel Comics' The Uncanny X-Men is the stuff of industry legend.  By conservative estimate, Chris has sold in excess of 500,000,000 comics worldwide.  He has written other seminal characters such as Batman and Superman, originated several creator-owned series, is published throughout the world in many different languages, and has authored nine novels.  His papers are in the Rare Book and Manuscript Library at Columbia University.  

 

Chris’ prose novels include the science fiction High Frontier Series (First Flight, Grounded!, Sundowner); the fantasy series Shadow Moon, Shadow Dawn, Shadow Star and the dark fantasy Dragon Moon.  He has just completed work on a dark fantasy prose novel, Wild Blood, and is beginning work on a thriller, Silk Road, with Robert Gregory Browne.  His first published short story in over 25 years, "The Ghost of the Superstition Mountains" will appear in the anthology Under the Moons of Mars: New Adventures on Barsoom edited by John Joseph Adams, coming from Random House in February 2012.


Louise Simonson is a powerhouse in the comics industry.  She is best known for her work on comic book titles such as Power PackX-FactorNew MutantsSuperman: The Man of Steel, and Steel.  She has been a prominent writer and editor in the comics industry since the 1970s,  From 1993 through 2009, she wrote seven picture books and twelve novels for middle-readers and adults, many of which featured characters from DC Comics.  "Weezie" will read from her work in progress, a contemporary urban dark fantasy, Night Terrors.

Amy Goldschlager was the fourth curator of the NYRSF Readings.  She is a print and online editor who has edited science fiction, children's, and craft books for several major publishers. She has also written reviews for Publishers Weekly, Kirkus, Locus, Audiofile magazine, and ComicMix.

Keith R.A. DeCandido

     The SoHo Gallery for Digital Art
     (address and links below)

To stay cool in the middle of the summer, we will feature an August pair of writers for Tuesday, the 9th.  Please take note that this is not the first Tuesday of the month.  We're just trying to keep you on your toes. 

--
Keith R.A. DeCandido has written more than 40 novels, as well as dozens of novellas, short stories, comic books, and non-fiction pieces.  Recent work includes the Dungeons & Dragons novel Dark Sun: Under the Crimson Sun, and short stories in the anthologies More Tales of Zorro, Tales of the House Band, and Liar, Liar.  He scripts the monthly Farscape comic book in collaboration with series creator Rockne S. O'Bannon.  His new release Unicorn Precinct is the long-awaited sequel to Dragon Precinct, with Goblin Precinct and Tales from Dragon Precinct coming in 2012.  Keith also kicked off his Super City Police Department series in 2011 with The Case of the Claw, and twice a week he provides the Star Trek: The Next Generation Rewatch at Tor.com.  His first contribution to The Scattered Earth, a shared-world science fiction project, will be out by year's end, as well.

Keith claims to be the newest member of the writers' cabal known as the Liar's Club, but don't you believe it.   The portal to his blog, podcast, Twitter, and Facebook account is at http://DeCandido.net 

Laura Anne Gilman is the author of nine Cosa Nostradamus novels, including the forthcoming Tricks of the Trade (Nov. 2011), and the Nebula award-nominated Vineart War fantasy trilogy, which began with Flesh and Fire and Weight of Stone, and concludes in October with The Shattered Vine.   Her story collection, Dragon Virus, was published in June 2011 as a limited edition hardcover from Fairwood Press, with recent stories out now in Fantasy Magazine (August 2011) and the anthology End of an Aeon.


A member of the on-line writers’ consortium BookVew Café, she writes the “Practical Meerkat” advice column for writers on their blog every Friday.  Learn more at http://lauraannegilman.net or follow her on Twitter (@LAGilman) or on Google+.

A Comics Spectacular!

Dave Roman
Molly Crabapple

Gina Gagliano, Guest Curator 


     Tuesday, July 5th  --  Doors open 6:30 PM
     $7 suggested donation
     The SoHo Gallery for Digital Art
     (address and links below)

Gina Gagliano writes: “With the move of the NYRSF Readings to the Soho Gallery for Digital Art, we’re introducing the (occasional) graphic novel reading, as now we have the opportunity to see the reading as well as hear it – essential for science fiction/fantasy works in the comics form.”  

To accommodate this, we will take advantage of the large screen in the downstairs section of the gallery as our writer/artists perform the vocals for the works being displayed.  And what a lineup Gina has assembled!

--
Molly Crabapple, artist, comics creator and entrepreneur, has been called "a downtown phenomenon" by The New York Times and "THE artist of our time" by comedian Margaret Cho. Using her hyper-detailed Victorian pen for graphic novels, giant nightclub murals, and for clients like DC Comics, Marvel Comics, SXSW, Red Bull and the Wall Street Journal, Molly is also the founder of Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School - an alt.drawing salon with branches in 120 cities from Akron to Zagreb - which Roger Ebert recently called "inspired." Molly has spoken at the Museum of Modern Art, The Brooklyn Museum, and in museums and universities from Helsinki to Sao Paulo.  Her Web site is at http://mollycrabapple.com

Dave Roman has done comics about the X-Men and Avatar: The Last Airbender, as well as contributing to the Flight anthologies and editing the video game comics anthology Lifemeter.  The NY Times bestseller is also the author of Agnes Quill: An Anthology of Mystery.  After working as the comics editor for Nickelodeon Magazine for ten years, his first solo project, Astronaut Academy, came out this June from First Second Books.  The Comics Waiting Room says of it, “There will not be a better all-ages graphic novel published this year than Astronaut Academy. Period.”  Dave maintains a blog at http://yaytime.com

Gina Gagliano is the Marketing Coordinator at First Second Books, Macmillan’s dedicated graphic novel imprint.
