Join SF in SF with authors: John Shirley & Richard Kadrey

Come spend the evening with two of the genre’s finest practioners, John Shirley and Richard Kadrey, as they each read a selection from their recent work. San Francisco is fortunate indeed to have the two of them here in residence!

John Shirley is a prolific American fantasist, and noir fiction, and science-fiction writer, who has published over 30 books and 10 collections. His novels include Everything is Broken, The Other End, Bleak History, Crawlers, Demons, In Darkness Waiting, and seminal cyberpunk works City Come A-Walkin’. His collections include the Bram Stoker and International Horror Guild award-winning Black Butterflies, Living Shadows: Stories: New & Pre-owned, and In Extremis: The Most Extreme Stories of John Shirley. He also writes for screen (The Crow) and television. As a musician Shirley has fronted his own bands and written lyrics for Blue Öyster Cult and others.

Richard Kadrey is a San Francisco-based novelist, freelance writer, and photographer. His novels include Sandman Slim, Kill the Dead, Aloha From Hell, Metrophage, Kamikaze L’Amour, and Butcher Bird: A Novel Of The Dominion. Other works include collaborative graphic novels and over 50 published short stories. Sandman Slim is one of 13 books listed on Barnes & Noble’s “Best Paranormal Fantasy Novels of the Last Decade,” and is currently in development for a feature film.
