This is our last author event for 2009!
There will be cupcakes 🙂 Yes, they go with whiskey!

SF in SF presents an evening of readings, schmoozing and book signing to close out our 2009 event year. Authors will read a selection, followed by Q & A moderated by author Terry Bisson. Book signing follows in the lounge; books for sale courtesy of Borderlands Books.

Jeff VanderMeer, recent Guest of Honor at the World Fantasy Convention 2009, is touring for his final novel in his Ambergris Cycle, Finch, published by Underland Books, and for his writers’ guide Booklife, published by Tachyon Publications. His associated Booklifenow website focuses on sustainable creativity, and is a unique writing guide to sustainable careers and sustainable creativity – the first to fully integrate discussion of the role of new media into topics that have always been of interest to writers. With his wife, Ann VanderMeer, he’s edited the charity anthology Last Drink Bird Head, New Weird, and Steampunk. His short fiction has appeared in Conjunctions, Library of America’s American Fantastic Tales, and several year’s best anthologies. He writes nonfiction for The Washington Post Book World, Omnivoracious, The New York Times Book Review, the B&N Review, and many others. Do ask him about the release date for SquidPunk!!

S. G. Browne, is the author of Breathers: A Zombie’s Lament, a dark comedy about life after undeath told from the perspective of a zombie. His second novel, Fated, is a dark, irreverent comedy about fate, destiny, and the consequences of getting involved in the lives of humans. His take on zombies: “So what happened to make them so popular today? I’ll tell you what happened. Zombies were taken out of their proverbial archetypal box. No longer are they just the shambling, mindless, flesh-eating ghouls we’ve known and loved for most of the part four decades. They’ve expanded their range, become more versatile. More well-rounded. And who doesn’t enjoy a well-rounded zombie?” Introduce the modern complications of a zombie trying to find himself in this mad, mad world, and how best to bring your undead girlfriend home to meet mom, and you’ve got yourself a story!!
