On Wednesday, we got to hear two talented authors perform their works for the audience. And perform is the opportune word. Lawrence Connolly led off with “Beneath, Between,” a story about a man who discovers a book that shouldn’t exist and goes on a quest to determine its origin. And he performed the entire piece from memory with no notes. Tom Monteleone read “Horn a Plenty,” about a Jazz pianist and a cursed trumpet.

On Wednesday, what a treat. We first heard from David Edison, who read from his forthcoming novel The Noonday Plague. And then Jeff Ford read “The Thousand Eyes.” The house was packed, overflowing into the hall, with familiar and new faces alike. Overall, a fantastic night.
On Wednesday, we were visited by two friendly ghosts in the form of Dale Bailey & Simon Strantzas, who both read excerpts of their work. Matt was out of town so he conjured up a superlative substitute co-host in the form of Kristine Dikeman. Ellen’s photos of the evening can be viewed here.

An all around divinely inspired night with Gregory Frost reading”Touring Jesus World” followed by Andy Duncan reading an excerpt from his novel-in-progress, tentatively titled “The Man Who Rode the Mule Around the World.” The stories had overlapping themes about satire and religion — synchronicity, conspiracy, or divine intervention?
It was an evening spent above the Earth, first in the airships above a near-future virus-ravaged landscape in Rajan Khanna’s Falling Sky, then in a solo-human spacecraft in Steven Gould’s Exo. A full house crowded the toasty bar for an excellent end to this year’s Fantastic Fiction reading series. Thank you to all our readers for this year and to all our guests and fans who keep Fantastic Fiction lively and fun. Wishing you all a happy and healthy holiday season and all the best in the new year!
