Karen Joy Fowler and Claude Lalumiere

October 7th, 2010 · No Comments

Saturday October 16th

For our main October reading we welcome two very fine writers.

Karen Joy Fowler has her hotly-anticipated new short story collection out from Small Beer Press, What I Didn’t See and Other Stories.  In her moving and elegant new collection, New York Times bestseller Karen Joy Fowler writes about John Wilkes Booth’s younger brother, a one-winged man, a California cult, and a pair of twins, and she digs into our past, present, and future in the quiet, witty, and incisive way only she can.

Claude Lalumiere, on a rare tour from Montreal, is the author of the collection Objects of Worship, “Twelve superb and sometimes quite disturbing stories … strange but powerful flavors of eroticism … Objects of Worship (A+) is a great collection and I strongly recommend it for every lover of literate speculative fiction.” Fantasy Book Critic.  He is also the co-creator of Lost Myths, an online ‘zine that’s a “playful medley of cryptomythological fiction, pantheons, bestiaries, comics, art, games, readings, performance and more.”  In his nonexistent spare time he’s also the Fantastic Fiction columnist for The Montreal Gazette.

As usual Terry Bisson will be on hand to introduce the readers and moderate a Q&A session. Borderlands Books will provide books for purchase.
