Ellen Datlow and Matthew Kressel, hosts of the Fantastic Fiction at KGB Reading Series, present two readers for May.
The first reader is Simon Strantzas, author of five collections of short fiction, including Nothing is Everything (Undertow Publications, 2018). He is also the editor of the award-winning Aickman’s Heirs and Year’s Best Weird Fiction, Vol. 3. His fiction has appeared in numerous annual best-of anthologies and in venues such as Nightmare, Postscripts, and Cemetery Dance; he has been nominated for both the British Fantasy and Shirley Jackson awards. He lives with his wife in Toronto, Canada.
Kai Ashante Wilson will also be reading that night. He won the Crawford award for best first novel of 2016, and his works have been shortlisted for the Hugo, Nebula, Shirley Jackson, Theodore Sturgeon, Locus, and World Fantasy awards. Most of his stories are available on Tor.com. His novellas, The Sorcerer of the Wildeeps and A Taste of Honey, may be ordered from local bookstores or online. He lives in New York City.
