October is our favorite month at Singularity & Co., and what better way to celebrate the season than with a creep-tastic edition of our favorite reading series?
As always, our readers will choose (in this case horrific, creepy, and/or generally spooky) excerpts from *their* favorite genre authors! Featuring \"scary story\" selections from:
* Matthew Mercier (The Moth, Glimmer Train)
* Diana Pho (Beyond Victoriana, Tor.com)
* Cici James (Singularity&Co)
* Michael K Anderson
* Mallory O\'Meara (Dark Dunes Productions)
Hosted and created by Ryan Britt.
COSTUMES not required, but STRONGLY ENCOURAGED! There WILL BE a costume contest, so we highly recommend them...
A few more important notes: THERE WILL BE BOOZE (but feel free to BYOB), and we\'ll be recording everything LIVE for the forthcoming LUST FOR GENRE VIDEOBLOG!
Renowned, best-selling SciFi & Fantasy author SIMON R. GREEN is making a rare trip to NYC, and Singularity&Co has been lucky enough to claim an evening with him, all to ourselves!
Tuesday, October 14th, 6:30pm - Singularity&Co (Dumbo, Brooklyn)
So come on down, bring your books, find some new ones - Simon will be signing from 6:30 to 8:30pm!
A little about Simon:
Simon was born in Bradford-on-Avon, Wiltshire, England (where he still resides), in 1955. He has obtained an M.A. in Modern English and American Literature from Leicester University and he also studied history and has a combined Humanities degree. His writing career started in 1973, when he was a student in London. His first actual sale was a story titled Manslayer, back in 1976, but it didn’t appear till much later; Awake, Awake…. was his first sale to a professional editor, in 1979.
After years of publishers’ rejection letters, he sold an incredible seven novels in 1988, just two days after he started working at Bilbo’s bookshop in Bath (this after three and a half years of being unemployed!). This was followed in 1989 by two more, and a commission to write the bestselling novelization of the Kevin Costner film Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, which has sold more than 370.000 copies!
