This month's readers joined forces to sell a story to the current issue of Analog Magazine ("The Walk to Distant Suns"), and it's been a while since they've read for us, so no further excuse was needed to feature them at our reading this month.

His novel King of Shards was hailed as “Majestic and resonant,” by NPR Books.

His work has been translated into seven languages. As a coder, he created the Moksha submissions system, in use by many of the largest SF publishers today. He is the co-host of Fantastic Fiction at KGB reading series in New York with Ellen Datlow. Find him online at @mattkressel or matthewkressel.net.

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.

When attending our events, please use only common scents. Preferably NO perfumes or colognes!  We like the smell of people, and we have at least one staff member who is truly allergic and was bedridden for the better part of three weeks after an event. Thank you for understanding.
