You know, I picked up a KGB anthology the other day, and was sad to see (well, skimming the table of contents, anyway) that there were no representatives from your night, Ellen.

A shame.

Yes the "Dixon Place" readings, although last I heard this particular one will be held at the South Street Seaport museum, oddly enough.

The March NYRSF reading is tomorrow, with Knipfel and Morrow. I might try to go, I liked Knipfel's last book and I'm curious about his upcoming novel. Although I hear they CHARGE! And they probably don't even have DRINKS! Really, the nerve of some people....

Gabe, you've never been to a NYRSF/Dixon Pl. reading? Yup, they charge and they don't have drinks <g> I used to go regularly until I started curated the one reading at KGB--one reading a month is enough for me.

No, and I still haven't gone as I missed last night's due to work. And if I have to choose one regular reading a month you know which one it'll be, Ellen!

I don't care very much for Morrow's fiction, to be honest, but I was curious to meet Knipfel, he seems like quite a character. QUITTING THE NAIROBI TRIO is a very funny book, despite being about a depressing topic -- his stay in a psychiatric ward. Unfortunately the early word from PW on his new novel doesn't seem so hot. Even if he did manage to get a blurb from Pynchon for the cover.

Too bad. But thank you for your support <g>

I'm not that hot on satire myself but just bought a new story by Morrow that I think is very funny.

I think I read Knipfel in the NY Press, when I still bothered to pick up that right wing rag. Is he the guy who was going blind and writing about it in his column?

Was a nice reading, Ellen. And I did manage to make the acquaintance of Mr. Simanoff, which was a bonus. Trust you had a good time in Florida.

As excited as I was for next month's reading it appears it might coincide with the first night of Passover, so I will likely be absent. Oh well....

Nice reading last night, Ellen, Goss and Kelly are fabulous readers. (And the restaurant gets two thumbs up -- not only do I love Japanese, but the service was quick and the food was good. Certainly beats Kiev and that other place.)

As I write I'm missing Kelly's Trampoline reading. Regrettable, but Isabel made me do it. The ground is so saturated with moisture my drains have been flooding over the last month after hard rains. Although I haven't seen a drop of water yet tonight, so I probably could have gone. The travails of homeownership. Sigh.

Last night's reading by Gregory Maguire and Jeff VanderMeer was a great success. Standing room only. Unfortunately, Gregory had to leave right after his reading to attend the National Book Awards (he looked spiffy in his black tie).

And we went to a new restaurant afterwards, Mitali East, which was excellent. We'll be going there next month too.

I always just make a beeline for the Charing Cross used shops but have the feeling I should broaden my horizons a bit.)

Right. The New Oxford Street shop was still there last I looked, but it was only selling a few factory seconds merchandise stuff. The new one is pretty much due south, but of course you have to go east and then double back. The easiest way to get to the new store is to do your shopping in Charing Cross Road and then head north-east up Shaftesbury Avenue from Cambridge Circus.

Damn! I probably got here too late for you to get this Gabe--but I've been disappointed by those on Charing Cross Rd for awhile. The Fantasy Centre is excellent. I was there for the first time last year and brought home a lot of good stuff.

I hadn't known Forbidden PLanet moved Cheryl, so thanks for the info.

I much wanted to hear Mr Bowes but made the mistake of buying opera tickets without realizing the conflict. Oh well. See you next month with Dr. Cisco.

Handel's XERXES at City Opera. It's actually "Serse" but apparently they're using an English translation of the libretto, which is kind of worrisome. NYT had a pretty good review, though, and Paul W also told me he saw it and liked it. I've become a bit of a Handel nut lately.

Is is out of place to mention that Adrian Benford, an author with his first novel out and published by Edge Science Fiction, will be at KGB Monday, August 30th? It's not a Fantastic Fiction night, but I'm sure Adrian would appreciate a visit from anyone in the area.
