The next Fantastic Fiction at KGB reading series, hosted by Ellen Datlow and Matthew Kressel, will present Michael Swanwick, one of the most acclaimed and prolific science fiction and fantasy writers of his generation. Swanwick has received a Hugo Award for fiction in an unprecedented five out of six years and has been honored with the Nebula, Theodore Sturgeon, and World Fantasy Awards. His latest novel is Dancing With Bears, a post-Utopian adventure featuring confidence artists Darger and Surplus, published recently by Night Shade Books.
Also reading will be Andy Duncan. His new collection, The Pottawatomie Giant and Other Stories, will be out this fall from PS Publishing. His story “Slow as a Bullet” leads Jonathan Strahan’s Eclipse Four anthology, and “On 20468 Petercook” is forthcoming at Tor.com. Duncan is a winner of two World Fantasy Awards and the Theodore Sturgeon Memorial Award for best science-fiction story of the year.
It’s all happening on Wednesday September 21st, 7pm, at KGB Bar, 85 East 4th Street (just off 2nd Ave, upstairs.)
