Gene O’Neill – A Taste of Tenderloin

From Apex: “Eight stories of dark science fiction and fantasy weave a path through the underbelly of San Francisco’s most notorious district in A Taste of Tenderloin by Gene O’Neill. Best known for his strong sense of place and uniquely vibrant characters, O’Neill brings the gritty underside of the city to life with eight interwoven stories of broken lives, missed dreams, and all that can go wrong with both reality and fantasy among the down and out. The city itself opens wide to swallow all comers with the temptation of its secrets and sins, while O’Neill brings dignity and humanity to a set of characters often overlooked in both society and fiction.”

At Borderlands Books, 866 Valencia Street, San Francisco

Sunday, September 13: Antique Autos in History Park, San Jose
Noon to 5:00 PM – Free event!

The Santa Clara Valley Model T Association will be joined by a Steampunk Picnic outing. We’ll be enjoying a potluck picnic lunch at around 2:00ish. Bring your picnic gear, something to share and a beverage (alcohol is not allowed in the park) and we’ll gather on the lawn of the Hill House (the Hill House is located directly across from the Fire House). There MAY be picnic tables available, but plan to either bring your own chair, or sit upon the grass. History Park is a fabulous place for photos, so bring your cameras. There’s a fantastic Trolley barn chock full of steam powered cars & engines, O’Brien’s Sweet Shop, and plenty of house museums to browse… oh, and the park will be full of antique cars!
