This event will be recorded for later broadcast by SomaFM.

JOHN SCALZI is an American science fiction author and former president of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America. He is best known for his Old Man’s War series, three novels of which have been nominated for the Hugo Award, and for his blog Whatever, where he has written on a number of topics since 1998. He won the Hugo Award for Best Fan Writer in 2008 based predominantly on that blog, which he has also used for several charity drives. His novel Redshirts won the 2013 Hugo Award for Best Novel. He has written non-fiction books and columns on diverse topics such as finance, video games, films, astronomy, writing and politics, and served as a creative consultant for the TV series Stargate Universe.  There’s much more info at his Wiki page, here.

KIMBERLY UNGER is the Philip K. Dick Award-winning author of  The Extractionist, and her debut novel Nucleation. 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 from UC Davis and Illustration from the Art Center College of Design. Nowadays she produces narrative-games for VR, lectures on the intersection of art and code for UCSC’s master’s program and writes science fiction about how all these app-driven superpowers are going to change the human race. (TL;dr: Unger writes about fast robots, big explosions, and space things.)  Kimberly Unger lives in the San Francisco Bay Area, where she works in the future of VR on the Meta-Oculus gaming platform.  Learn more about this amazing local talent here

The American Bookbinders Museum‘s entrance is located at 355 Clementina Alley, between 4th and 5th Street, between Howard and Folsom.  The nearest BART station is Powell and Market.  Street parking is free on Sundays (check the meter for hours!), and there are several garages in the area as well – further directions and transit options are available here on the ABM website.
