This month we present two witty writers of the supernatural, each bending the genre to our delight. This is Nick Kaufmann's debut with our series (mea culpa), and Alisa Kwitney was last with us for our tribute to Robert Sheckley. If they are new to you, here's a splendid opportunity to discover these wonderful, humorous, and occasionally macabre voices.
Nicholas Kaufmann is the Bram Stoker Award-nominated, Thriller Award-nominated, and Shirley Jackson Award-nominated author of numerous novels in the horror, fantasy, and adventure genres. His short fiction has appeared in Cemetery Dance, Dark Discoveries, X: The Erotic Treasury, All-American Horror of the 21st Century, and others. In addition to his own original work, he has written for such properties as Zombies vs. Robots and The Rocketeer. He lives in Brooklyn with his wife Alexa and two ridiculous cats.
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.
