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.
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.
