This September marks the beginning of our 27th season, and we're starting off with some real treats.  One writer is coming in from Malaysia, but the other has to traverse the width of Brooklyn -- a scary prospect, indeed!



Randee Dawn is a Brooklyn-based author and journalist who published her collection of dark speculative fiction, Home for the Holidays, in 2014, and in 2009 she co-authored The Law & Order: SVU Unofficial Companion. Dun-dun!

Her short fiction has appeared in publications including 3AM Magazine, Well-Told Tales and Eternity. Her story "The Visitors" was published in Fantasia Divinity Magazine this summer. She has stories appearing in two anthologies later this year -- one of which features characters from her novel, Leave No Trace, which is currently represented by Bridget Smith at Dunham Literary.

When not making stuff up, Randee publishes entertainment profiles, reviews and think pieces in outlets including Variety, The Los Angeles Times, Today.com, and Emmy Magazine. She also blogs regularly at randeedawn.com.
 


Cassandra Khaw writes horror, press releases, video games, articles about video games, and tabletop RPGs. These are not necessarily unrelated items. Her work can be found in professional short story magazines such as ClarkesworldFireside FictionUncanny, and Shimmer. Cassandra’s first original novella, Hammers on Bone, came out in October 2016 from Tor.com. To her mild surprise, people seem to enjoy it. She occasionally spends time in a Muay Thai gym punching people and pads.

Her recent novel, The Food of the Gods, earned a rave review in the NY Times from N. K. Jemisin.




The New York Review of Science Fiction Reading Series provides performances from some of the best writers in science fiction, fantasy, speculative fiction, etc.  The series usually takes place the first Tuesday of every month, but maintains flexibility in time and space, so be sure to stay in touch through the mailing list, the Web, and Facebook.

The Cafe has excellent food, a coffee bar, beer and wine.  The Jenna freebie table will offer books and goodies, as will the raffle for any who donate.
