(directions and links below)Samhain may be over, but the time for fantasy is still with us. Guest Curator Rob Killheffer, who first held the reins of the reading series in 1994, will present two fine contemporary writers who explore the darker side of the imagination.
F. Brett Cox‘s fiction, essays, and reviews have appeared in numerous publications. He co-edited, with Andy Duncan, Crossroads: Tales of the Southern Literary Fantastic (Tor, 2004). His most recent stories are “She Hears Music Up Above,” which appeared in the original anthology Phantom (Prime Books, 2009), and “Nylon Seam,” available at the Interfictions 2 Online Annex ( http://www.interstitialarts.org/projects/annex.php) . His most recent critical essay, “Fragments of a Hologram Rose for Emily: William Gibson, Southern Writer,” appeared in The Cultural Influences of William Gibson (Edwin Mellen Press, 2007). Other fiction, essays, and reviews have appeared in Century, Black Gate, North Carolina Literary Review, Lady Churchill’s Rosebud Wristlet, Black Static, Postscripts, The New England Quarterly, Paradoxa, The New York Review of Science Fiction, Science Fiction Weekly, Science Fiction Studies, and elsewhere. He has served as a juror for the Shirley Jackson Award, the Science Fiction Research Association Pilgrim Award, and as a member of the Bram Stoker Award Additions Jury.
A native of North Carolina, Brett is Associate Professor of English at Norwich University in Northfield, Vermont, and lives in Roxbury, Vermont, with his wife, playwright Jeanne Beckwith.
Terence Taylor is an award-winning children’s television writer whose work has appeared on PBS, Nickelodeon, and Disney, among many others. After a career of comforting young kids, he’s now equally dedicated to scaring their parents.
His short horror stories have been published in all three “Dark Dreams” horror/suspense anthologies. “Bite Marks: A Vampire Testament” is his first novel. “Blood Pressure,” the second in the opening trilogy of the Vampire Testaments, is due out from St. Martin’s Griffin in April, 2010. He lives quietly in Brooklyn and laughs a lot between acts of literary carnage.
Robert Killheffer has, over the past 20 years, been at various times an editor, writer, book reviewer and critic. He was editor and founder (with Meg Hamel and Jenna Felice) of Century magazine, for which he was nominated for the World Fantasy Award. He was also a founder (with Ellen Datlow) of the e-zine Event Horizon, and a long-time member of the staff of The New York Review of Science Fiction. His reviews and essays have appeared in F&SF, Omni, The Washington Post Book World, The New York Review of Science Fiction, Publishers Weekly and other publications.
In recent years he has been wandering in the deserts of technology and business, but he’s slowly finding his way home.
The New York Review of Science Fiction Reading Series is celebrating its 20th season of providing performances from some of the best writers in science fiction, fantasy, speculative fiction, etc. The series takes place the first Tuesday of every month at the South Street Seaport Museum at 12 Fulton Street on the 5th floor. We have been known to move from one venue to another within the museum, so check each time. Sadly, we will be seeking new digs as of March.
Admission is by a $5 donation. If circumstances make this a hardship, let us know and we will accommodate you. The producer and executive curator is radio producer and talk show host Jim Freund.
