We’re still off-cycle from our usual haunting of the first Tuesday of the month, but we’ll strive to regain our footing soon. Speaking of hauntings: Happy Samhain! This month’s reading promises a pair of weird tellings from two wonderful writers we just don’t hear from enough.


Terry McGarry is the author of the Tor fantasy novels Illumination, The Binder’s Road, and Triad, and has published short fiction in more than forty genre magazines and anthologies, including Amazing Stories, Aboriginal SF, Realms of Fantasy, The H. P. Lovecraft Magazine of Horror, Live Without a Net, and I, Alien; her genre poetry is collected in the award-winning chapbook Imprinting, from Anamnesis Press. She has been a freelance copyeditor since 1987, specializing in science fiction and fantasy, and she worked at The New Yorker magazine for fifteen years, the last seven of them as a Page O.K.’er (closing editor). A New York City native, she has also been a bartender on Wall Street, an English major at Princeton, and a street trader in Ireland; she holds a third-level belt in Krav Maga and plays Irish traditional music at gigs and pub sessions in the city and on Long Island, where she currently lives. She’s on the web at terrymcgarry.com.

Veronica Schanoes is an assistant professor in the department of English at Queens College-CUNY, where she specializes in children’s literature and speculative fiction.

(Journal of the Fantastic in the Arts.)


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.
