 It is hard to believe that we’re already up to our May reading, and it’s time to decide whether we’ll have a Summer series after June, or take our traditional break.  But not without some fine season finales, courtesy of guest curator Ron Hogan.


Evie Manieri has a degree in Medieval History and Theatre from Wesleyan University.  BLOOD’S PRIDE is her first novel. She lives in New York City with her husband, her daughter, a drowsy dog and a badly spoiled parakeet.  She maintains a site at http://www.eviemanieri.com/?page_id=98/

Leanna Renee Hieber is an actress, playwright, and the author of award-winning Gaslamp Fantasy, such as the Strangely Beautiful saga, the Magic Most Foul saga and the forthcoming Eterna Files from Tor.

Ron Hogan helped create the literary Internet when he launched Beatrice in 1995. His latest website, http://TheHandsell.com, recruits authors and independent booksellers to make personalized recommendations for readers based on the books they already love. He lives in Queens.


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 space, so be sure to stay in touch through the mailing list, the Web, and Facebook .

We will have free refreshments, some books for sale, a raffle for all who donate for admission, and freebies at the Jenna Table.

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

The SoHo Gallery for Digital Art (www.sohodigart.com)  is dedicated to re-establishing SoHo as an international center for the development of new artistic forms, concepts and ideas.  A screens-instead-of-canvases approach allows a wide selection of art from around the world which would otherwise never make it to the City.  The SGDA is available for private gatherings and events of all kinds.  For bookings call (800) 420-5590 or visit http://sohogallerynyc.com .
