Ellen Datlow and Matthew Kressel, hosts of the Fantastic Fiction at KGB Reading Series, present two readers for November.
The first reader is Grady Hendrix, who has written about the Confederate flag for Playboy magazine, covered machine-gun-collector conventions, written award shows for Chinese television, and answered the phone for a parapsychological research organization. His novel, Horrorstör, about a haunted IKEA, has been translated into 14 languages, and he’s also the author of My Best Friend’s Exorcism, now out in paperback. He recently wrote MOHAWK, a horror movie about the War of 1812 which premiered at Montreal’s Fantasia Film Festival. His latest book is Paperbacks from Hell, a nonfiction history of the horror paperback boom of the Seventies and Eighties
David Leo Rice will also be reading that night. He is a writer and animator from Northampton, MA, currently living in NYC. His stories and essays have appeared in Black Clock, The Believer, The Collagist, Hobart, The Rumpus, Vol. 1 Brooklyn, and elsewhere, and his animations have played at festivals around the world. A Room in Dodge City, the start of a trilogy, is his first novel. It won the 2016 Electric Book Award and was published this year. He recently finished a standalone novel, Angel House.
The readings will be held Wednesday, November 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. Books will be available for purchase.
