Authors for the May KGB Reading Series

Ellen Datlow and Matthew Kressel, hosts of the Fantastic Fiction at KGB Reading Series, present two readers for May.

The first reader is Kit Reed. Kit has two new books this season: Son of Destruction, her spontaneous-human-combustion novel, and a "best of" collection from the Wesleyan University Press: The Story Until Now--A Great Big Book of Stories, thirty-five short stories, spanning the length of her career, from her first published short story to six new and previously uncollected stories from the 2000s. Her collection, What Wolves Know, was a 2011 Shirley Jackson Award nominee.

Also reading that night will be Daniel A. Rabuzzi, author of The Longing for Yount series: The Choir Boats and The Indigo Pheasant. His short fiction and poetry have appeared in Sybil's Garage, Shimmer, ChiZine, Lady Churchill's Rosebud Wristlet, Abyss & Apex, Goblin Fruit, Mannequin Envy, Bull Spec, Kaleidotrope, and Scheherezade's Bequest.

The readings will be held May 15, 7 p.m., at the KGB Bar, 85 East 4th St. (just off 2nd Ave, upstairs), New York City. For more information, please go to http://www.kgbfantasticfiction.org. Books will be available for purchase from Word Bookstore.
