The next Fantastic Fiction at KGB reading series, hosted Ellen Datlow and Matthew Kressel, will host Terence Taylor, an award-winning children’s television writer whose work has appeared on PBS, Nickelodeon, and Disney. After a career of comforting kids, he’s now equally devoted to scaring their parents. His short horror stories have been published in all three Dark Dreams horror/suspense anthologies. Bite Marks was his first novel and Blood Pressure, just out from St. Martin’s, is the second in the opening trilogy of the Vampire Testaments.
Also reading will be Leanna Renee Hieber, an actress and playwright who has adapted several works of 19th Century literature for the stage. Her one-act plays have been produced around the country. Her novella Dark Nest won the 2009 Prism Award for excellence in the genres of Futuristic, Fantasy and/or Paranormal Romance. Her debut novel, The Strangely Beautiful Tale of Miss Percy Parker (which made the Barnes & Noble Bestseller List) is the first of a quartet of gothic Victorian fantasy novels published by Dorchester. The second book in the series, The Darkly Luminous Fight for Persephone Parker was recently released.
It’s all happening on Wednesday May 19th, 7pm at KGB Bar, 85 East 4th Street (just off 2nd Ave, upstairs.)
The event is free.
