Last month we imported some of the best from Philly.  This month we present local produce in the form of two wonderful writers.

Kris DikemanKris Dikeman lives in New York City. She is a founding member of the Altered Fluid Writers group. Her work has appeared in Lady Churchill’s Rosebud Wristlet, Year’s Best Fantasy 9, Strange Horizons, Sybil’s Garage, The Best of All Flesh and Sympathy for the Devil. She has stories upcoming in Ellen Datlow's Alice in Wonderland anthology Mad Hatters and March Hares, and Analog. Read more of her work at WhatsWrongWithMurielPuce.com


Michael SwanwickS. A. Chakraborty is a fantasy writer from New York City. Her debut, The City of Brass, is the first book in THE DAEVABAD TRILOGY, an epic fantasy set in the 18th century Middle East that will be published in November 2017 by Harper Voyager.  When not buried in books about Mughal portraiture and Omani history, S. A. enjoys hiking, knitting, and cooking unnecessarily complicated meals for her family. You can find her online at sachakraborty.com or on Twitter (@SChakrabs) where she likes to ramble about history, politics, and Islamic art. She is a proud member of the Brooklyn Speculative Fiction Writers group.


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.
