(address and links below)It would seem that new novels are blooming along with the flowers of Spring (tra-la!). This month, we will feature readings from two writers with books we have long awaited.
Alaya Dawn Johnson is the author of Moonshine and Wicked City, urban fantasy novels set in the Lower East Side of 1920s New York City. She has also written Racing the Dark and The Burning City, the first two books of a fantasy trilogy called The Spirit Binders. Her YA debut, The Summer Prince, will be published in spring 2013. Her short stories have appeared in the anthologies Welcome to Bordertown and Zombies vs. Unicorns, and she can be contacted via her website, alayadawnjohnson.com.
E. C. Myers was assembled in the U.S. from Korean and German parts. His debut Novel, Fair Coin, has just been released from Pyr. He is a graduate of the Clarion West Writers Workshop and a member of the writing group Altered Fluid. When he isn’t writing fiction, he blogs about Star Trek at http://theviewscreen.com, plays video games, watches classic films and television, sleeps as little as possible, and spends too much time on the Internet. Visit his website and blog at http://ecmyers.net or find him on Twitter: @ecmyers.
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 nearby.
