Ellen,

I really enjoyed Lucius' reading last night. Since the last thing of his I read was "The Golden," I was wondering if you could recommend a couple of things to read that might help get me up to speed.

Get TRUJILLO, his new short story collection. It's got a ton of stuff.

He had a whole bunch of good novellas out in 2003 including LOUISIANA BREAKDOWN and VALENTINE, "Limbo" in THE DARK. I'm assuming you've read all his stuff on SCIFICTION. If not, shame on you and get to it. "Jailwise" and "Over Yonder" and "Liar's House" and "Mr Volto" and "A Walk in the Garden" and "AzTECHS."

Both Scott and Lucius read wonderfully, didn't they?

It was nice seeing you (just tried the almond biscotti--delicious but if it breaks a tooth I'll kill ya!)

I'm sorry we didn't have dinner together. But the chaos convinced us to try a different place next month.

Yeah, both were great readers. Kept me out of the doze and tune-out zone. Very enjoyable.

Great line-up, as usual. I have to stop scheduling classes on Wednesday nights. Thankfully, Wexler's reading falls during my Spring Break, so I'll be at that one. Next Fall I'll have to leave Wed open so I can make it to more of these.

Yeah, great line-up is right. It's time to move to Montreal, Ellen, and to bring the whole KGB Wednesday thing with you. It's just too frustrating reading this list and hoping I might be able to fit in one, if any, of the readings...and, of course, arriving in time to actually find a seat. Then again, there's no better atmosphere, sitting or standing.

Hi John and Michael,
Well, I hope to see you both once in a while :-)

Terry Bisson tried to figure out a way to start a reading series up in SF or Oakland but I believe couldn't do it. KGB Bar is sui generis--it's hard to find a similar venue anywhere.

There is a reading series in west chelsea that's similar in that they have readings in the bar/restaurant but I don't know how regular they are.

Tracy Taylor
Posted on Tuesday, February 22, 2005 - 10:57 am:   

I would really like to attend one of these readings, but am a little confused about how to get there. I live in New Jersey, close to Princeton, and can get myself to New York Penn Station. I have never been to NY or on Public Transportation in the USA, and am hoping someone can provide me with idiot proof directions to get to the KGB Bar from New York Penn Station (or from Princeton if they know that).

Thanks.
Tracy

PS. I have looked on the MTA maps and am completely lost. I have no clue about NY and what is what.

Posted on Tuesday, February 22, 2005 - 01:21 pm:   

Idiot proof would be "take a cab!" --however, if you want to take public transportation from Penn Station, it's a litte more complicated.

You could take the 1,2,3,E,C, or A from 34 st (downtown) to 14th street. The 1,2,3 are on 7th avenue south. the E,C,A go along 8th avenue. Then take the crosstown bus east to 2nd avenue and walk down from 14th street to 4th street (ten blocks). If it's not really cold that's not too bad.

Anyone have other suggestions?

Posted on Wednesday, February 23, 2005 - 06:33 am:   

Take the downtown A, C, or E to West 4th St. Change downstairs for the downtown F or (weekdays only) V two stops to 2nd Ave. Take the exit at the rear of the train which will lead you to 2nd Ave and Houston Street. Fourth Street is a few short blocks north.

Posted on Wednesday, February 23, 2005 - 06:41 am:   

Tracy: When I go up to the readings at KGB from Jersey, I drive up to the station at Princeton Junction from South Jersey. If you can find that station, they have trains to Penn Station running all day and back, leaving Penn at around 11:30 or 12:00 midnight. Kevin has good directions for you there on the subway. If you're not used to the subway, I'd take a cab back to Penn later. Don't forget, if you go to Princeton Junction Station, you gotta pat to park, which is about 3 bucks.

Tracy, In my experience, if you're lost in New York City, you can ask and get good directions from just about anyone but a cop. I once had a lady ride the bus with me to show me where to get off when I was looking for Ellen D's place. This was after a cop had steered me in the absolutely worst wrong direction.

I seldom see the KGB readings listed on the Hour of the Wolf schedule. (which leads me [rightly or wrongly] to believe that they aren't being replayed there)

I asked Jim and he plays them once in awhile when he doesn't have a guest or has a little extra time. So they wouldn't be scheduled.

Podcasts of the KGB Salon Fantastique reading were supposed to go up on Greenman review several months ago, but the person in charge (and in possession of the tape) left town suddenly and so that's that. Shit happens.

Well we should form a posse and round up this individual :-)

If anyone knows the whereabouts of this individual please ask them to cough up the tape.

If Jim should read this -- if the readings are in digital form then creating a podcast isn't difficult. I'd be willing to try and move along the process but I don't know what the "barriers" are preventing this from happening.

It'd be interesting if they could do podcasts of the reading series. Good internet publicity for the series and for the authors both. Apparently podcasts are what all the cool kids are doing right now. ;-)

I don't know how podcasts are created. I don't know where they would "live"--perhaps if Jim Freund was interested since the tapes belong to him--on his Hour of the Wolf website.

I've asked Jim to come by and respond here. Perhaps it can be done. I just don't know how much work and bother it entails but I DO know that I'm not going to do any of it.;-)

The podcasts could live on any server, and they hardly need Jim's recording equipment to make them. I have a mic and hand-held digital voice recorder that could create excellent quality podcasts. I'm sure they could go up on the Lady Churchill's server, where the KGB info is.

Of course, I think the issue with this is, would the authors want their stories made available as podcasts without any payment? It might be more workable if you tried it out as a temporary thing -- like the podcast would be available for a week or two, then be taken down (i.e. no longer downloadable).

The intent would be for the podcasts to be free. As everyone is unable to be physically present for the KGB readings this would be a way of inviting a larger audience.

Certainly the authors should be asked to give permission. (But the first step is to determine if Jim's recordings can be podcasted and then to go from there.)

Ellen, you're doing your part by bringing Jim into the mix.

I think the majority of authors wouldn't hesitate to give permission to podcast, and without any particular need for them to be taken down within a couple of weeks. Really, it's just more opportunity for them to be heard/read and maybe interest someone in reading more of their stuff.

::Certainly the authors should be asked to give permission. (But the first step is to determine if Jim's recordings can be podcasted and then to go from there.)::

Well, yes, though unless Jim has some exclusive to the recordings, it's not really necessary that *his* recordings be able to be podcasted. I don't know why they *wouldn't* be able to be podcasted; sure, he records them using analog media, but should be easy enough to digitize. And if not, like I said, for a $100 you could get the same mic/digital voice recorder setup I've got and you wouldn't need to convert anything--it would record it as an MP3.

Here's a recording of a panel I did at Lunacon:
http://www.tuginternet.com/jja/audio/lunacon-ask-the-editors.MP3

And that's with the recorder just sitting on the table, with no mics clipped to anyone.

I don't know how difficult it would be to create the podcasts using Jim's method, but with my method it would be very easy.

Chris: I think the majority of authors would give permission too--and I'm all for the idea of podcasting the KGB readings--I'm just pointing out that permission is an issue.

Oh most definitely, John. Permission would have to be asked for, just as a matter of formality and legality and politeness, to cover all bases, and you never do know if there'd be an author who would have some reason for not wanting it available as podcast, so best to be safe. But yeah, the majority would have no problem with this.

Regarding the existing recordings, we won't know until Jim says one way or the other. (I have a keen interest in some of the past recordings.)

As to future recordings, it's certainly more expedient to go the digital route when creating a podcast.

At the same time one wouldn't want to discourage Jim from doing what he's already doing.

But until we have feedback from Jim we really don't know his wishes...

Posted on Monday, March 26, 2007 - 01:48 pm:   

Hi all,

I have no problems making my recordings freely available to the curators and authors so long as no one uses them for commercial purpose. (I'd love a link or credit, of course :-) And it will be far easier for me to maje my recordings available in the future as I'm just upgrading from legacy technology (Sony D5m audio cassette) to a next-gen Zoom H4 MP3/WAV digital field recorder. Not unlike what JJA is talking about, but with more options and professional broadcast abilities.

However, there are legal considerations for all involved. When I broadcast (and make the 'cast available stream on-demand) over WBAI, the broadcast is copyrighted with all rights going to the the individual participants in the broadcast. Therefore, if someone takes a story, reading, or whatever from the air and tries to sell it, or distribute it, or even copy the text from it and claim it as their own, the author is protected. Put it online without any paperwork, and it may not be protected. Perhaps Creative Commons might be a solution, but I wouldn't recommend doing that without someone expert. Does Cory Doctorow login here?

Also bear in mind that the Internet is forever. You can take something down after a couple of weeks, but I can introduce you to folk who can find it a couple of years later and do whatever they want with it fairly anonymously. (Think 2600...)

One approach would be to reserve all rights of the respective copyright holders. This would be stated at the website distributing the podcast. And it could also be stated in the podcast itself.

At any rate as long as the person reading the work owns the copyright to the work then it is implicitly understood that this person has the copyright.

So what's needed (not necessarily in order):

1. A website to host the podcasts.

2. Getting permission from the individual copyright holders.

3. The podcasts.

Posted on Monday, March 26, 2007 - 06:19 pm:   

That may be a good approach. I'd love to hear from an expert -- a lot of this stuff is still new legal territory outside of professional venues such as broadcast radio/Internet streams or Audible.com. I would imagine that a number of writers would want to be careful, particularly with unpublished or unsold works, which are common at both KGB and NYRSFr.

For my part, I can certainly provide the recording, and basic editing when needed. I would also consider adding the NYRSF Readings to the mix, unless it's perceived this should be for one venue only.

I'd be happy to host the readings on hourwolf.com, if that was acceptable to Ellen et al. I'd have to do a bit of research as to whether I'd use a third-party site to hold the files and sustain the traffic, as is usually done with blogs and the like. I doubt sff.net (where hourwolf.com lives on a non-commercial basis) would appreciate too much traffic without offloading the stream.

The archives of years past are another issue. Converting the ol' analog to digital is easy, but has to be done real-time. I have well over 40 years of tapes, including some from Baird Searles and Anthony Boucher, which are begging to be digitized. I'm hoping to look into a grant to enable this...

Thanks PM and Jim for discussing this. What do you need from me? I can certainly ask for permission from various readers of the past year--Jim just tell me whose readings you have --I would NOT want to podcast stories that have not yet been published--eg David Edelman's from this past month --until they have been sold and published because then he'll lose his first rights (or might, depending on whatever magazine he eventually sells it to).

Posted on Monday, March 26, 2007 - 08:26 pm:   

The authors would have to decide regarding unsold/unpublished works. The works are implicitly copyrighted -- however an infringement lawsuit could not be filed until the copyright is registered.

However, if an author steals someone's unpublished work and in part or in whole it is published as their own they're going to get caught. Could be a career ending choice.

Podcasting the NYRSF readings sounds good too. Obviously KGB and NYRSF would have to arrive at some mutual agreement.

In my mind I picture an index along the lines of:

KGB

Jan 2006 (author x and y)
Feb 2006 (author x and y)
etc.

and

NYRSF

Jan 2006 (author)
Feb 2006 (author)
etc.

and then by author where author x did readings at both KBG and NYRSF.

author x

KGB NYRSF
Jan 2006 Feb 2006

Digitizing the analog tapes is obviously going to be time consuming.

I'm just trying to motivate the process.

Implicit copyrights only go so far in a world where pianists actually steal other pianists' performances and release albums as their own. And of course, there's no movie, TV show, or book that isn't distributed virally once it's been digitized. Folks just need to be aware that once it's podcast, it's hard to control if it becomes popular.

KGB and NYRSF are Ellen (and Gavin) and I, for all intents and purposes, so I doubt we'd have trouble coming to a consensus. I'd talk with David Hartwell to make sure he doesn't have any problems with the concept. Some folk have approached him in the past about rights, but naught ever came of it.

The biggest issues we've ever faced is to not book the same folk too many months from each other, which has happened unintentionally of late. (Not that I notice any fewer people showing up for either events as a result.)

Yeah, the analog tapes will be a lotta work. Any interns out there, or someone experienced in getting a grant or university involved?

BTW PM, you said "I have a keen interest in some of the past recordings." Is that professional interest, or just stuff you want to hear?

Ellen, nothing you need do yet, other than to let your wishes be known.

I'm too far away to physically stop by to assist. If needed, I'm willing to volunteer to assist with digitizing the tapes. I would be in less than an ideal situation to record the new intros for the podcasts though.

Posted on Tuesday, March 27, 2007 - 09:55 am:   

Thanks, PM. But the tapes are too big a project for me to outsource. They involve a lot more than the KGB series. There's several years worth of those, 18 years worth of NYRSFr, and 35 years of readings Hour of the Wolf readings of which there were as many as 70 in some years. Some of those are 10" reel-to-reel at 7.5 or 15 IPS (Inches-Per-Second). A few from the early NYRSFr are DAT. The oldest of these are fragile.

Worse, my filing system is close to non-existent. More than a few of the older tapes are unlabelled.

So that's why I'd like a grant and/or an intern. As I said, it's a *big* project.

The more recent stuff I'm transferring on my own as time permits. The new stuff will be digital, if not pod-ready.

Seems that the Interstitial group was dressed differently than the other reading groups. I would say "snazzily". Ok I guess I did say it :-)

However, I'm not prepared to declare that Interstitialists dress between or around genre.

But I do note that you brought out the crossing guard impulse in at least one person. Did he actually bring the book or was he tempted by it?

The book Will is looking at was brought by Chris Schluep, my in-house editor at Del Rey, I believe, and it was a submission of some sort.
