This month we will feature two wonderful writers who are presenting works themed around a topic. Optional Victorian or Steampunk attire encouraged, but not mandatory. You should be able to deduce just what that is from the bios below. (We've often believed ourselves to be Holmes Pun Philosophers.)
Teel James Glenn has killed hundreds and been killed even more times-- on stage and screen, traveling the world as a stuntman, fight choreographer, swordmaster, bodyguard, actor and haunted house barker.
He has had stories in over a hundred magazines including Weird Tales, Mystery Weekly, Pulp Adventures, Spinetingler, SciFan, Mad, Black Belt, Fantasy Tales, and Sherlock Holmes Mystery.
Find him online at TheUrbanSwashbuckler.com.

She has two award-winning alternate history novels, Silent Meridian and A Pocketful of Lodestones from "The Time Traveler Professor" series.

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.
