This month has certainly been haunted — it must be Samhain! Behind the scenes we
have had to deal with conflicts with several other excellent events and over-crowded
schedules. So we will reschedule Terry McGarry and Veronica Schanoes for another
date (soon!), and are going back to Tuesday with a program that should not conflict
too much with the other events occurring on that date. 

Meanwhile, set your phasers to ?Tickle Mode? and your transporters to the SGDA
(spatial and wibbly-wobbly coordinates below) to attend a reading on Tuesday by two
of the most entertaining writers of universes, both inhabited and original.

Aaron S. Rosenberg has written novels for Star Trek, StarCraft, Warcraft, Exalted,
Stargate Atlantis, and Warhammer. He also writes educational books, young adult
novels, children’s books, and tabletop role-playing games. He won an Origins Award in
2003 for Gamemastering Secrets, a Gold ENnie in 2007 for Lure of the Lich Lord, and
a 2003 PsiPhi Award for Collective Hindsight, Book One. His second Warcraft novel,
Beyond the Dark Portal, was nominated for a Scribe Award in 2009 and his young
adult novelization Bandslam: The Novel won the award for best Young Adult novel in
2010.  Rosenberg wrote two tie-in novels for the television series Eureka, entitled
Substitution Method and Road Less Traveled, under the house name Cris Ramsay. He
is also the author of the Dread Remora space-opera series and the co-author of the
O.C.L.T. occult thriller series, both from Crossroad Press.

Rosenberg is also part of Crazy 8 Press, a cooperative publishing venture he started
in 2011 with fellow authors Peter David, Michael Jan Friedman, Robert Greenberger,
Glenn Hauman, and Howard Weinstein. His humorous science fiction novel No Small
Bills was released as an e-book from Crazy 8 in September 2011 and immediately hit
the Nook Bestseller list, rising as high as No. 33.  The sequel to No Small Bills, Too
Small for Tall
, was released in September of 2012. Aaron dwells online at http://gryphonrose.malibulist.com.

Keith R.A. DeCandido was rocketed to Earth as an infant to escape the destruction
of his home planet, then was raised by a roving pack of Gypsy librarians and trained
in their vile and depraved ways. A career in publishing was inevitable. He’s written
almost 50 novels, at which point he gets a free set of steak knives. In 2009, for his
extensive work in the tie-in field as both a writer and an editor, working in such
universes as Star Trek, Marvel Comics, Serenity, Resident Evil, Farscape,
Supernatural, World of Warcraft, Dungeons & Dragons, and many more, the
International Association of Media Tie-in Writers awarded him a Lifetime Achievement
Award, which means he never needs to achieve anything ever again.

Keith is the author of the “Precinct” series of fantastical police procedurals, which
includes the novels Dragon Precinct, Unicorn Precinct, and Goblin Precinct, with two
more books due in 2013: the short story collection Tales from Dragon Precinct and the
fourth novel, Gryphon Precinct. Look for the “Precinct” series in at least two other
media next year as well.

When he’s not writing, Keith works as an editor for clients both personal and
corporate, plays percussion for the parody band Boogie Knights, whose new CD is
due out next year, is a black belt is Kenshikai karate, and works on several podcasts,
including The Chronic Rift, HG World, The Dome, Gypsy Cove, and his own Dead
Kitchen Radio. Find out less at his website at http://DeCandido.net .
