NYRSF Readings for 3/13

Yes, there was an NYRSF Readings just the other night, but why turn down the chance to hear from Brendan Byrne and Rudy Rucker? The NYRSF crowd will convene once again on Tuesday, March 13.

Brendan Byrne‘s fiction has appeared in Flurb; his nonfiction has been published in Strange Horizons, The Brooklyn Rail and Rhizome. His novella The Showing of the Instruments was published in 2011 by Phone Booth Press. He is the editor of The Orphan.

Rudy Rucker is a writer, a mathematician, and a former computer science professor.  He received Philip K. Dick awards for his cyberpunk novels Software and Wetware, now available in the Ware Tetralogy. His fantasy California novel of the afterlife, Jim and the Flims, appeared in 2011, as did his autobiography, Nested Scrolls, which received the Emperor Norton Award.  Rudy recently finished writing a 1950s alien invasion novel called The Turing Chronicles, featuring a love affair between Alan Turing and William Burroughs.  Rucker edits a speculative fiction webzine called Flurb.  He took up painting in 2000, and he’s had three shows of his pop-surreal works in San Francisco. 

The full press release follows the jump.

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.

After the event, please join us as we treat our readers for dinner and drinks at Milady’s nearby.
