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.

It was a superb night with Ben & Mary, and quite full. Ben read a selection of charming short shorts and Mary read from¬†Glamour in Glass.¬†She also dazzled us with a shadow puppet show.¬† Ellen’s photos of the evening can be found here.

We had our Thanksgiving pre-feast with two superb authors. Helen Marshall read from her new collection, Hair Side, Flesh Side about the length kids will go to get “artifacts” from famous saints. (Use your imagination.) And Jack Ketchum read several chilling excerpts from various works, including I’m Not Sam. Perfectly creepy readings to get us in the mood for the cold winter months.

On Wednesday, S.G. Browne read excerpts from his Lucky Bastard, and John Kessel read from a work in progress.¬† Lots of new faces in the crowd for this night of excellent readings.¬† Ellen’s photos of the night can be found here.
Despite an evil zombie cheer-leading squad just outside during the readings, the night could not have been better, with guests Paul Tremblay and Alma Katsu.¬† Ellen’s photos can be seen here.
Though a heavy storm passed through earlier in the day (what do you have against KGB, nature?) the turnout was large for Jeff and Tenea.¬† Jeff read a story about kids wielding guns and Tenea read various excerpts from her work.¬† Another great night at KGB.¬† Ellen’s photos can be found here.

What a great night we had last Wednesday with Jack O’Connell & E.C. Myers.¬† Jack began by talking about writers block and then read an opening scene about EMTs from a novel he’s working on.¬† Then after the break E.C. Myers read a portion of his novel Fair Coin. Ellen’s photos of the evening can be found here.

We had another marvelously entertaining night on Wednesday, with guests Karen Heuler & Victor LaValle.¬† Victor started off the night with a funny, poignant and wonderfully odd story (as yet unfinished, he tells us) about a man waiting in line at the 180th Street Washington Heights Post Office.¬† And Karen finished off the night with a deliciously wicked story of a woman who goes to a Gypsy in order to become a man. Ellen’s photos of the night (including, at last, one of her!) can be seen here.
The house was full this past Wednesday for readers Scott Lynch and Elizabeth Bear (who subbed last minute for Caitl√≠n R. Kiernan).¬† Ellen’s photos of the night can be found here.
