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.

     (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!

     Tuesday, July 5th  --  Doors open 6:30 PM

     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.
