Liu, Wasserman at NYRSF Readings for 3/6

Jim Freund asks:

If March comes in like a lion, does it have to be cowardly? Perhaps so, if our theme is Oz Reimagined: New Tales from the Emerald City and Beyond; a new anthology co-edited by Doug Cohen and JJA. And look what Toto dragged in — two of the best writers working in speculative fiction today: Robin Wasserman and Ken Liu!

Ken Liu is nominated for three Nebulas, it was announced today. An author and translator of speculative fiction (and lawyer and programmer), his work has appeared in The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, Asimov’s, Analog, Clarkesworld, Lightspeed, and Strange Horizons. Already on his awards shelf are a Nebula, a Hugo, a World Fantasy Award, and a Science Fiction & Fantasy Translation Award.

Robin Wasserman is the author of several books for children and young adults, including The Book of Blood and Shadow, the Cold Awakening Trilogy, the Chasing Yesterday Trilogy, and Hacking Harvard.

John Joseph Adams is the bestselling editor of many anthologies, such as The Mad Scientist’s Guide to World Domination. Forthcoming work includes Wastelands 2, Dead Man’s Hand, and Robot Uprisings. John is also the editor of Lightspeed Magazine and Nightmare Magazine, and co-host of’s The Geek’s Guide to the Galaxy podcast.

Douglas Cohen is the former editor of Realms of Fantasy Magazine. In the magazine’s final year, they published their 100th issue, won a Nebula Award, and were nominated for a second one. Oz Reimagined marks his first anthology.
