NYRSF Readings For 10/7

***** (address and links below) October is always a favorite month, and brings us the return of two favorite writers we’ve missed for awhile at the Readings.

Paul Park has published twelve novels and a book of short stories, all in a variety of genres. He teaches writing and literature at Williams College. His new novel, All Those Vanished Engines, came out from Tor Books in July, powered by the evanescent structures of the title. Part memoir, part science-fiction novel, it is built of alternating strands of history, distorted memory, and impossibility.

James Morrow is the …author of nine novels, including a postmodern historical epic, The Last Witchfinder; a Mary Shelley homage, The Philosopher’s Apprentice; and a forthcoming Darwinian extravaganza, Galápagos Regained. He has twice received the World Fantasy Award and the Nebula Award, as well as the Grand Prix de l’Imaginaire, the Prix Utopia, and the Theodore Sturgeon Memorial Award.

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 cider and cheese as always, and a raffle for donors of $1 or more. After the event, please join us as we treat our readers for dinner and drinks nearby.
