I'm now curating this series, along with Jim Freund. If you want to read for us when the series resumes in the fall, or know of anyone who might make a good choice, or just want to comment on past readings, or just about anything at all, really, this is the place to do so!

And if you live in or around New York, come to our next reading, Tuesday, May 13, at the Melville Gallery at the South Street Seaport to hear Liz Hand and John Clute read.

Reading for us in June will be Tony Daniel and James Alan Gardner.

Hey Lucius

I believe we do the second Tuesday of the month -- but we'll happily schedule something special to meet your requirements that month if you can let me know early enough when you're going to be here. My email, for anyone who needs it, is stilskin@sff.net.

It'll be great to see you, man!

Lucius, it'll be great to see you.

Thanks to everyone who showed up at the Melville last night to hear John Clute and Liz Hand. Fantastic readings by both. John read a funny, absolutely beautifully written short story called "Death of a Sacred Monster," which has been published in England, I believe, but not here. Liz read an excerpt from her forthcoming novel, Mortal Love, which had the audience in hysterics with her channelings of Lady Wilde and Algernon Swinburne.

Afterwards, we repaired to Heartland Brewery, and proceeded to run up a respectable bill! A good time was had by all.

Next month: James Alan Gardner and Tony Daniel.

I, alas, won't be there. But that's no excuse for the rest of you!

Yes, an excellent reading and dinner. Lovely space.

I'm looking into it as a possibility for the SFWA A/E party but it's probably too small. However, I've been told there are other spaces available for use so I'm asking about them.

Dixon Place presents the New York Review of Science Fiction Reading
series

This Monday, 6/9, we have another top-drawer lineup for you, featuring
writers Tony Daniel and James Alan Gardner reading from their works. Due to
space availability, we have reverted for this one time from Tuesday to
Monday, but still beginning at 7 PM at the South Street Seaport
Museum's Melville Gallery. (Details below.)

WHO:
TONY DANIEL's speculative fiction is have been critically acclaimed,
and are frequent picks for the Best of the Year Anthologies. His novels
include The Robot's Twilight Companion, Earthling, and Metaplanetary.
His short stories include Life on the Moon, (a Hugo-nominee and winner
of best short story of its year in Asimov's reader poll,) and A Dry,
Quiet War. He has done his part in reviving great sf radio drama, both
with his productions of original stories and classics for scifi.com and
his intermittently ongoing series, Automatic Vaudeville, heard on Hour
of the Wolf on WBAI-FM in New York. AV has also been adapted both for
stage and screen.

"I grew up in Alabama, went to Washington University grad school in St.
Louis, where I was kicked out of the philosophy program for being
insufficiently analytic. Landed in English, got an M.A., went to L.A. to USC
film school, dropped out to be a writer, then lived near Seattle, on
Vashon Island, for a few years, mostly in a bus -- a '49 Crown Supercoach
to be exact. Spent a year in Praha, Eastern Europe, then moved back to
the U.S., to California, New York, Alabama then New York again -- where
I've been for the last few years, observing things."

JAMES ALAN GARDNER is a leading northern light (that is to say
Canadian) whose work has also been celebrated. His eight novels include
Expendable, Vigilant, and Radiant, to be published next year by Eos. His
shorter works have been published in F&SF, Asimov's, Amazing, and several
original anthologies. The titles include the Aurora-nominated "Rain,
Ice, Steam", "The Children of Czeche", and "Reaper".

When he has spare time, he kicks things (brown sash in kung fu --
Shaolin, five animal style) and plays piano.

The South Street Seaport Museum's Melville Gallery
213 Water Street (near Beekman)

Dixon Place presents the New York Review of Science Fiction Reading
series

September already? Just like the scads of fresh-faced young students
swarming the streets of the city, except not so fresh-faced, nor so
young, the New York Review of Science Fiction Readings at Dixon Place
returns from its summer vacation! As in the spring, our readings will be
taking place at the South Street Seaport Museum's Melville Gallery, 213
Water Street (near Beekman Street), convenient to oodles of public
transport. [Directions below...]

Join co-curators Paul Witcover and Jim Freund on Tuesday, September 9,
at 7:00 p.m., as we kick off the fall 2003 season in style with two of
the finest writers—and most astute critics—speculative fiction has to
offer: Gregory Feeley and Paul Di Filippo. $5 cheap! Wine, soft
drinks, and munchies provided.

Although GREGORY FEELEY has published a novel, The Oxygen Barons, and
has published essays and reviews in the New York Times Magazine,
Saturday Review, The Atlantic, the Washington Post, and elsewhere, he is
best known for his novellas, such as "Aweary of the Sun," "The Weighing of
Ayre," and "Spirit of the Place." He has been nominated for the Nebula
Award, the Theodore Sturgeon Award, and the Philip K. Dick Award, and
his fiction has been reprinted in The Year's Best Science Fiction, The
Year's Best Fantasy and Horror, and Nebula Award Stories.

Feeley's new novella, "Giliad" (about ancient Sumer and 9/11), and a
magazine abridgement of his new novel, Arabian Wine (about 17th century
Venice, coffee, and steam power), will both appear this spring.

PAUL DI FILIPPO has had over one hundred stories published, many of
them collected in book form. His latest publication is a novel, Fuzzy
Dice, from PS Publishing. His prior work from PSP, A Year in the Linear
City, was nominated for a Hugo, a World Fantasy Award, and a Theodore
Sturgeon Award.

He lives in Providence, Rhode Island, with his mate of 28 years,
Deborah Newton, two cats—Mab and Penny Century—and a cocker spaniel named
Ginger.

Tuesday, 9/9/3
Doors open at 6:30

WHERE:

Was planning to go, but baby (together with, it seems, every other child in the United States) had the flu. Hope it was a good reading.

Missed you, Gabe. It was an excellent reading, and the usual enjoyable dinner afterward. Hope the baby's better by now.

No excuses accepted in Jan.!
