SAM J. MILLER is a Nebula-Award-winning author whose debut novel, The Art of Starving, was an NPR Best of the Year. His second novel, Blackfish City, was a Best Book of the Year for Vulture, The Washington Post, Barnes & Noble, and more, as well as a “Must Read” in Entertainment Weekly and O: The Oprah Winfrey Magazine. A recipient of the Shirley Jackson Award and a graduate of the Clarion Writers’ Workshop, Miller’s work has been nominated for the World Fantasy, Theodore Sturgeon, John W. Campbell, and Locus Awards, and reprinted in dozens of anthologies. His first short fiction collection, Boys, Beasts, & Men, is out as of June 2022. The last in a long line of butchers, Miller lives in New York City and at samjmiller.com.

KIMBERLY UNGER’s debut novel was the virtual reality space opera Nucleation; her breakout technothriller The Extractionist is forthcoming in July. Unger made her first videogame back when the 80-column card was the new hot thing, and followed that up with degrees in English/Writing and Illustration from the Art Center College of Design. Unger produces narrative-games for VR, lectures on the intersection of art and code, and writes science fiction about how all these app-driven superpowers are going to change humanity. (i.e. Unger writes about fast robots, big explosions, and space things.) She lives in the San Francisco Bay Area, where she works in the future of VR on the Meta Quest gaming platform.

Since 2004, SF in SF has offered readings, films, and special events in the Bay Area for readers of science fiction, fantasy, and speculative fiction. Hosted by Terry Bisson and Cliff Winnig, past guests have included Connie Willis, Gene Wolfe, Laurie King, Nancy Kress, Lev Grossman, Samuel R. Delany, Patrick Rothfuss, Gail Carriger, Cory Doctorow, Peter S. Beagle, and many others. We hope you will join us!
