As Winter wanes, why not enjoy two wonderful writers weading, um, reading for you?  Coincidentally, they've both run away to the circus in their fiction.

Robert Freeman WexlerRobert Freeman Wexler’s latest novel is The Painting And The City, PS Publishing 2009. It is being reissued in paperback and ebook by PS Publishing's Drug Store Indian imprint in April 2015. He has also published a novella, "In Springdale Town," (PS Publishing 2003; reprinted in Best Short Novels 2004, SFBC, and in Modern Greats of Science Fiction, iBooks); a novel, Circus Of The Grand Design (Prime Books 2004); and a chapbook of short fiction, Psychological Methods To Sell Should Be Destroyed (Spilt Milk Press/Electric Velocipede 2008). His stories have appeared sporadically in various magazines and anthologies, including Polyphony, The Third Alternative, Electric Velocipede, and Lady Churchill’s Rosebud Wristlet.  He will read from his recently-completed short novel, The Silverberg Business, a surreal detective story set on the Texas gulf coast in 1888.  Visit him online at

Chandler Klang Smith
Chandler Klang Smith grew up in Springfield, Illinois, before dropping out of high school early and running away to join the circus – or rather, the most circus-like educational environment she could find, namely, Bennington College. She left there in 2005 with a BA in literature and philosophy and journeyed on to the MFA Creative Writing Program at Columbia University, from which she graduated in 2007. At Columbia, she began the project that would develop into her first novel, Goldenland Past Dark, a weird tale of carnival performers, which was published in spring 2013 by the Toronto-based press ChiZine Publications.

In New York City, Chandler has worked as the ghostwriter of two young adult novels for Alloy Entertainment Group, as a reader for the Paris Review, as an assistant/associate agent for a boutique literary agency, and currently, as the Events Coordinator for the KGB Bar. She’s nearing the completion of her second novel, tentatively titled Smog, which she’ll be reading from this evening.  Her Web site resides at
