The warm winds of summer would not let autumn arrive, even though we were only two weeks from Halloween, and the skies set each night in pumpkin orange. On this unseasonably warm night, Caitlín read from a short story and her novel, The Drowning Girl, and Michael read excerpts from his new novel, Member. There were many new faces in the crowd, drawn by the readers to this small dim bar, some from as far as two hours journey away. All in all a pleasant and entertaining evening.

On Wednesday of last week, Cat Valente read from her Six Gun Snow White, while Christopher Barzak read his story called “The Boy Who Was Born Wrapped in Barbed Wire.” The room overflowed into the hall, and the sound of our gathering drifted out into the cooling New York City air to weave itself into the ever-present spectral hum of the city.
Ellen’s photos can be seen here.
Both reading from their unpublished, forthcoming works, Libba Bray & Nova Ren Suma enthralled the audience. Definitely one of the more memorable nights at KGB. Ellen’s photos can be seen here.
Another fantabulous night at Fantastic Fiction with Dale Bailey & Nathan Ballingrud.

This past Wednesday our readers delightfully frightened us. Lawrence C. Connolly read (well, technically he recited from memory) three short shorts. And Sarah Langan read from a novel-in-progress. You can view Ellen’s photos of the night here.
We had a blast Wednesday with Kit Reed & Daniel Rabuzzi. Kit read from”The Legend of Troop 13″ about feral girl scouts in the woods, while Daniel read excerpts from The Indigo Pheasant and Choir Boats. Ellen’s photos of the night can be viewed here.
On Wednesday we had the pleasure of hearing two talented authors read for us. Alaya Dawn Johnson read from her new YA novel, The Summer Prince. And Richard Bowed read “The Queen and the Cambion” from his new collection, The Queen, the Cambion, and Seven Others. Ellen’s photos can be seen here.
Last night we were ensorcelled by two illuminating and sparkly readers, Leanna Renee Hieber & Alethea Kontis. Leanna read her story “Charged” from Queen Victoria’s Book of Spells, and Aletha read various short shorts and one longer piece.
Ellen was away this month, so K. Tempest Bradford kindly stepped up to take photos of the evening. I’ve posted them to my G+ account here.
It was a crowded house this past Wednesday at KGB, with guests Gordon Dahlquist & Cecil Castellucci. Check out Ellen’s photos of the evening here.
Nick Mamatas read “Slice of Life,” a vignette story about a lab tech who slices up bodies for dissection. And Brian Keene read “Fetish,” about a man’s obsession with the discarded hair of his lover. The house was full, as Ellen’s photos attest.
