Honoring that, we will take an excursion to Barsoom (Mars, in the native lingo) with our fearless guide, John Joseph Adams; who fell asleep in a cave and woke up if not on Barsoom, at least California. Making a brief return to NYC, he will bring along two of Barsoom’s great inhabitants to read: a princess of Mars, Catherynne M. Valente, and a mighty Jeddak, Jonathan Maberry.

Delia SHerman & Ellen Kushner reading in NYC on 12/6

The New York Review of Science Fiction Readings
presents
Delia Sherman
Ellen Kushner

     Tuesday, December 6 -- Doors open 6:30 PM
     $7 suggested donation
     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

Clay & Susan Griffith read 10/4, hosted by Margot Adler

The New York Review of Science Fiction Readings
presents
Clay & Susan Griffith
Margot Adler, guest host
     Tuesday, October 4 -- Doors open 6:30 PM
     $7 suggested donation
     The SoHo Gallery for Digital Art
     (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.

Chris Claremont
Louise Simonson
Amy Goldschlager, Guest Curator 

     Tuesday, September 13 -- Doors open 6:30 PM

     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.

     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+.

Tobias S. Buckell is a Caribbean-born speculative fiction writer who grew up in Grenada, the British Virgin Islands, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.  He started submitting and writing short stories while in high school. In 1999 he attended the Clarion Science Fiction and Fantasy workshop and sold his first story, "Fish Merchant," to Science Fiction Age shortly afterwards.  About the time of the sale, his story "In Orbite Medievali" won a quarterly contest for the Writers of the Future. Since then his stories have appeared in a variety of places, including the magazines Analog and Nature, and the anthologies New Voices in Science Fiction, Men Writing Science Fiction As Women, and So Long Been Dreaming.  His first short story collection, Tides from the New Worlds, was published as a signed limited edition hardcover by Wyrm Publishing in April 2009.

His novels include Crystal Rain, Ragamuffin (which was nominated for a Nebula), and Sly Mongoose. He also wrote the sixth novel in the Halo book series entitled Halo: The Cole Protocol, which was #5 on the New York Times Best Seller List for paperback trade fiction in December, 2008.

Tobias is also known as a blogger for Weblogs Inc. and for his own site, http://TobiasBuckell.com. He currently lives in Ohio with his wife. Emily.

Joe Monti has had a swell run in publishing so far, from several years in bookstores to the head of children's sales at Houghton Mifflin and then as the director of paperbacks at Little, Brown Books for Young Readers.  He is probably best known for his tenure as the children's fiction buyer at Barnes & Noble, a position he held for over ten years, just when everything was changing.  Now, as a literary agent for Barry Goldblatt Literary, Joe represents children's fiction, Fantasy & Science Fiction, graphic novelists, and some tangental pop culture non-fiction works as well.  Over ten years ago, he was the curator of NYRSFR who revived the series after a time of hibernation,  a time he still thinks of quite fondly -- many friends were made, including a now-married pair of famous writers who met through the series through his introduction.

Usually our season runs through June, but when editor John Joseph Adams approached us with the opportunity to celebrate his new science fiction anthology, FEDERATIONS, we couldn't resist adding an extra date to the season.
 
FEDERATIONS From Star Trek to Star Wars, and from Dune to Foundation, science fiction has a rich history of exploring the idea of vast interstellar societies, and the challenges facing those living in or trying to manage such societies. The stories in Federations continue that tradition, and therein you can find a mix of all-new, original fiction, alongside selected reprints from authors whose work exemplifies what interstellar SF is capable of, including Lois McMaster Bujold, Orson Scott Card, Anne McCaffrey, George R. R. Martin, L. E. Modesitt, Jr., Alastair Reynolds, Robert J. Sawyer, Robert Silverberg, Harry Turtledove, and many more. To learn more about the anthology (or read several complete stories from the book), visit the anthology's Web site, http://johnjosephadams.com/federations.
 
K. Tempest Bradford’s fiction has appeared in Sybil's Garage, Electric Velocipede, Podcastle, and Strange Horizons. She also contributes non-fiction essays and columns to Tor.com, Fantasy Magazine, and the Carl Brandon Society blog. Her Web site is http://ktempestbradford.com/

Allen Steele is the two-time Hugo Award-winning author of the novels Orbital Decay, Lunar Descent, Chronospace, Spindrift, and many others. Over the last several years, he’s been focusing on writing and expanding his Coyote milieu, of which his story in Federations is a part. The most recent novel in the Coyoteverse, Coyote Horizon, came out in March, and will be followed by Coyote Destiny. Steele is also a prolific writer of short fiction, with four published collections, and a new one—The Last Science Fiction Writer—on the way. His stories have appeared in the magazines Asimov’s Science Fiction, Analog, The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, Omni, Science Fiction Age, and in numerous anthologies. His Web site is http://allensteele.com.

Genevieve Valentine's fiction has appeared in or is forthcoming in Strange Horizons, Journal of Mythic Arts, Fantasy Magazine, Farrago’s Wainscot, Sybil’s Garage, and Escape Pod. She is a columnist for Tor.com and Fantasy Magazine. Her appetite for good costumes and bad movies is insatiable, obsessions she tracks on her blog, http://glvalentine.livejournal.com
 
John Joseph Adams is the editor of the anthologies FederationsThe Living Dead, Seeds of Change, and Wastelands: Stories of the Apocalypse. Forthcoming work includes the anthologies Brave New WorldsBy Blood We LiveThe Improbable Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, The Living Dead 2, The Mad Scientist’s Guide to World Domination, and The Way of the Wizard.

NYRSF 9/9/8 Reading Afterthoughts

I know that Mark Blackman filed a review on this month's NYRSF reading for SF Scope, but since I've been blogging a bit recently I thought I'd do my bit.  Ian Randall Strock had suggested at one point I write these up for him, but as producer and curator of the events I thought it would be more appropriate to have a third party do actual reviews.  But as a blogger I need have no such scruples.
 
The Panel

This was the start of the series' 19th season.  Gordon Van Gelder began the reading series when he was heavily involved with the magazine, The New York Review of Science Fiction, and conceived the series as an offshoot of that fine magazine.  From the start, Gordon asked if I would record and perhaps broadcast the series, which is what gave me my involvement.  As time went on and curators came and went, I sort of picked up responsibility for keeping it alive, and eventually took the reins myself.  While I have no official (or even unofficial, come to think of it) affiliation with the magazine, I have kept the name out of respect and because it sets a baseline for the quality and a shared mission goal for what the readings should be.
 
I won't go into the blow-by-blow of the event, but I will record some of my personal thoughts.  First, it was a little strange coming back after the summer break after our last reading when one of our readers, Tom Disch, committed suicide less than a month afterwards.  It was hard not to recall the conversations, mood and feel of that day; especially when walking from the Seaport (where the readings are held) to the after-event pub.

We had a decent turnout -- about 40 people including the panel, though a mere 15 went to the pub afterwards.  David Hartwell served as emcee, and provided an entertaining presentation as he narrated the history of the book (I dunno, but when I worked at Ziff-Davis we all called magazines 'books') and featured readings and commentary from Gordon Van Gelder, Patrick Nielsen Hayden, Theresa Nielsen Hayden (easily the funniest presentation of the night,) and Kevin Maroney.  Rob Killheffer begged off last minute due to laryngitis.

This was hardly the typical reading, (and November's tribute to Ed Emshwiller will be equally atypical,) but clearly the audioence seemed to appreciate the event for what it was; the celebration of an historic landmark which gave birth to the reading series.  May it live up to the standards that the magazine has set.
