Book View Café is a web site and blog that launched November, 2008 with the mission to bring new and favorite works by the best authors in science fiction, fantasy, romance, and mystery directly to readers. With a membership that includes Ursula K. LeGuin, Vonda N. McIntyre, and many more, the group is pushing the envelope of multimedia by extending its presence to a slightly older medium: live and in person!
To learn more about this exciting and wonderful venture and celebrate its launch we invite you to come hear three of BVC’s fine writers.
Laura Anne Gilman is the author of the Retrievers novels, and the forthcoming VINEART WAR:FLESH & FIRE, while her short fiction has appeared in major anthologies and magazines, including Realms of Fantasy and Apex & Abyss.
Sue Lange’s two speculative fiction books, TRITCHEON HASH and WE, ROBOTS are available at Amazon.com. Her work, The Textile Planet, and a number of her previously published short stories, are available at BookViewCafe.com.
Susan Wright writes science fiction novels and nonfiction books on art and popular culture. New York City is her home, where she lives with her husband Kelly Beaton. Susan is currently the Spokesperson for the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom, a national organization committed to protecting freedom of sexual expression among consenting adults.
The New York Review of Science Fiction Reading Series is in its 19th season of providing performances from some of the best writers in science fiction, fantasy, speculative fiction, etc. The series (usually) takes place the first Tuesday of every month at the South Street Seaport’s Melville Gallery, 213 Water Street. Admission is free, but $5 donations are encouraged to offset costs and buy dinner for the readers. The producer and executive curator is radio producer and talk show host Jim Freund.
