Ellen Datlow and Matthew Kressel, hosts of the Fantastic Fiction at KGB Reading Series, present two readers for August.
The first reader is Michael Swanwick. He has received the Nebula, Theodore Sturgeon, World Fantasy, and Hugo Awards, and has the pleasant distinction of having been nominated for and lost more of these same awards than any other writer. He’s written ten novels, over a hundred and fifty short stories, and countless works of flash fiction. His latest novel, The Iron Dragon’s Mother, will be published by Tor Books in 2019.
Jeffrey Ford will also be reading that night. He’s the author of the novels The Physiognomy, The Girl in the Glass, The Portrait of Mrs. Charbuque, The Shadow Year, and four story collections: The Empire of Ice Cream, The Drowned Life, Crackpot Palace, and A Natural History of Hell. His most recent novel is Ahab’s Return: Or The Last Voyage published by HarperCollins. He has been the recipient of the Nebula Award, the World Fantasy Award, and the Edgar Award. He lives in Ohio and teaches writing part time at Ohio Wesleyan University.
The readings will be held Wednesday, August 15, 7 p.m., at the KGB Bar, 85 East 4th St. (just off 2nd Ave., upstairs), New York City. For more information, please go to http://www.kgbfantasticfiction.org. Subscribe to the mailing list: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/kgbfantasticfiction/.
