Nick Mamatas is currently the editor for Viz Media, LLC, headquartered in San Francisco, an anime, manga and Japanese entertainment company. Heck, we all have a day job...but in his spare time he's written extensively for Razor Magazine, The Village Voice, various Disinformation Books and BenBella Books' Smart Pop Books anthologies. His short novel Northern Gothic (Soft Skull, 2001) was nominated for the Bram Stoker Award for Best Long Fiction in 2002. His first full-length novel, Move Under Ground in 2006, was nominated for both the Bram Stoker Award for Best First Novel and the International Horror Guild Award for Best First Novel in 2005, and, in 2007 he decided to distribute it online for free under a Creative Commons license. Other titles include 3000 MPH In Every Direction At Once: Stories And Essays, Under My Roof, and the forthcoming anthologies Spicy Slipstream Stories (with Jay Lake) and Haunted Legends (with Ellen Datlow). And do visit his blog.

David Levine - a science fiction and fantasy writer who's sold over thirty short stories so far. David won the Hugo Award for Best Short Story in 2006, for 'Tk'tk'tk' (Asimov's Mar 2005), the Writers of the Future Contest, the James White Award, and the Phobos Fiction Contest, and he has been nominated or shortlisted for the Nebula Award, the Theodore Sturgeon Award, the Aeon Award, an earlier Hugo Award, and the John W. Campbell Award (twice). His first book Space Magic, a collection of his short stories, is available now from Wheatland Press. Together with his wife, Kate Yule, he produces the fabulous little fanzine, Bento - you can read back issues online.

Each author will read a selection from their work, followed by Q&A from the audience moderated by author Terry Bisson

We REALLY encourage you to take BART into the City, or use MUNI to get here - parking can be problematic in San Francisco, to say the least. We are less than 1/2 block away from the Montgomery St. station. Trust us - you don't want to be looking for parking and be late for the events!

Phone (night of event) 415-572-1015
