Margot Adler, guest host
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.
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 )
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 Reading Series provides performances from some of the best writers in science fiction, fantasy, speculative fiction, etc. The series usually takes place the first Tuesday of every month, but maintains flexibility in time and place, so be sure to stay in touch through the mailing list and the Web.
Books will be available at the event.
