Ellen Datlow and Matthew Kressel, hosts of the Fantastic Fiction at KGB Reading Series, present two readers for April.
The first reader is Dale Bailey, the author of eight books, including In the Night Wood, The End of the End of Everything, and The Subterranean Season. His story, “Death and Suffrage,” was adapted for Showtime’s MASTERS OF HORROR television series. His short fiction has won the Shirley Jackson Award and the International Horror Guild Award and has been nominated for the Nebula Award and Bram Stoker Award®.
