Coming Soon

May 2nd, 2013 · 3 Comments

Our May reading will be on Saturday 11th and will feature Robin Sloan (Mr. Penumbra’s 24 Hour Bookstore) and Austin Grossman (YOU: A Novel, and Soon I Will Be Invincible). As usual, each author will read a selection of their work, followed by Q&A moderated by author Terry Bisson. Books for sale courtesy of Borderlands Books. That’s at our usual Variety Preview Room venue.

It’s also DEBUT NOVEL DRINK NIGHT! Join us for a cold BOOKSELLER on ice!

Then, just a few days later, we are going on the road. Many of the best SF&F writers around will be gathered in San José for the SFWA Nebula Awards weekend. We have two absolute giants of the field for you. On Thursday May 16th, in the Market Room of the Hilton San José we will present Gene Wolfe and Connie Willis. Our thanks to SFWA for helping organize this. Doors open at 6:30pm for a 7:00pm start. For this special event, Nebula Award Weekend attendees are free, and public admission is $10 at the door. All proceeds will benefit the SFWA Emergency Medical Fund and Variety Children’s Charity of Northern California.

    Sounds super exciting, I see the date listed, but I’m unsure of the time and location. When on Saturday, and where? Probably Borderlands cafe, since it’s talking about books for sale at Borderlands, but I just wanted to be sure. Thanks.

    It’s not clear which of the two events you are referring to.

    The Sloan/Grossman reading is at our usual venue of the Variety Preview Room in San Francisco. Details are given in the post above.

    The Wolfe/Willis event is at the Hilton San José.

    Ah yeah, I was referring to the SF event, the San Jose event seemed to have all the necessary info.
